  1. His Domain name wasn't "stolen", it was hacked.

    So what? Trying to be a hater baiter?

    He is who he is, and if you don't care for him or his food, just ignore him.

      It was neither stolen nor hacked.

      They (fieri) simply forgot to register (own) the full name "guysamericankitchenandbar.com".

      Someone with a good humor decided to register the domain name and spoofed the menu.

      Good fun while it lasts.

        I agree 100%. Nothing like beating a dead horse, huh, SmartCookie? I guess some people have nothing better to do.

        Maybe Paula Dean will make some kind of faux pas this afternoon and they will have a whole new thread to start!

      2. It wasn't stolen or hacked, the domain was unregistered.

        1. Damn, I just came here to post this.....

          1. its still pretty funny, no matter how it happened...

              "Add a Cinnabon and two more Cinnabons 4.95"

              1. Very funny. Unfortunately the guy plagiarized the menu items.

                Dude, all you had to do was put a credit on the bottom of your menu acknowledging where the descriptions came from. Too much to ask?

                  Aw, that's disappointing, about the plagiarism. Oh well. Still funny.

                    What a loser. I agree with the poster above, though, about the 'Add a Cinnabon ... Add two Cinnabons.' Hysterical.
