  1. Pretty funny.

    First of all, what does the restaurant have to do to get more than 1 star. Liked the crab cakes and still pans it??

    We need Samuel L. Jackson as Jules Winfield to do one.

    1. I *LOVE* this! I really hope they do more of them.

      I'd love to see Steve Buscemi as Nucky Thompson or Kathy Bates as her character in "Misery" do a reading.

        I like Buscemi as Garland Greene in Con Air.

        Dennis Leary should do one too. Just being himself of course.

          Ooh - better character for Buscemi to use, and yes, Denis Leary would be great! That would *SO* be a "NSFW" video, however. ;-)

            Actually, I can't believe no one said Hannibal Lechter.

        2. I want to see dramatic readings of Chowhound posts and follow-up threads.

              And I nominate Miss Needle to do it!

                Luckily Joe H has emphasized certain words in all caps -- less room for misinterpretation. I hope I can do the role justice!

          1. I can see restaurants hiring actors to read the good Yelp reviews in their commercials.

            1. Hilarious!

              The link to a restaurant's response (also from happyplace.com) is posted below:

                1. Here's the second one in the series. Be warned, it is a bit... gross.

                  1. Jon Stewart needs to do at least one of these. I think it's in his DNA.

                      1. Hilarious! Number 4 is by far my favorite.

                        1. I could not get through #2, #3 and #4. I stopped them somewhere between halfway and 2/3 through. Eye-rolling, ridiculous, not funny.
