Chili's Salads Come From Where?

David writes in with what may be the most questionable piece of Chili’s advertising since Mike Myers — as Fat Bastard in Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me — co-opted the “I Want My Baby Back” ribs jingle to express his fascination with eating infants.

Note the subject line from a message the restaurant’s marketing department sent to David:

———- Forwarded message ———-

From: Chili’s

Date: Thu, Oct 14, 2010 at 9:13 AM

Subject: Chili’s soups, salad, chips & salsa out the wazoo!

The email advertised Chili’s “Bottomless Express Lunch.” The terms “wazoo,” “bottom” and express” take my mind places I’d rather it not go during lunchtime.
