A judge determined that it's okay for a restaurant to kill its own customers.
New York's 2nd Avenue Deli will be allowed to continue selling its "Instant Heart Attack" sandwich thanks to a Manhattan judge who ruled against a copyright infringement claim by infamous Las Vegas illness-monger The Heart Attack Grill.
After the 2nd Ave Deli received a cease and desist from the Heart Attack Grill — once a Phoenix-based chain, but now a single establishment in the Sin City — over the questionably named sandwich which consists of half-a-pound of Corned Beef, Pastrami, Turkey or Salami between two large potato pancakes, the deli filed a lawsuit to settle the matter.
"We feel that we've been vindicated," owner Jeremy Lebewohl told the Daily News. "We're doing what we've always done, what we do best, selling sandwiches."
I hate to sound really, really evil, but if a customer eats a sandwich called the "Instant Heart Attack" and then has an actual heart attack, the customer deserves the heart attack, and the restaurant deserves to lose a paying customer. Also, both the customer and the restaurant are ridiculously huge idiots.
