We’ve seen passengers and airline workers exchange heated words before, often over things like seating assignments or attire. But a fight between an American Airlines flight attendant and a passenger on a recent flight all boiled down to one thing: pasta. [More]
A Michigan food industry entrepreneur lost his fight against H.J. Heinz Co. this week, when a federal jury ruled yesterday that the company didn’t rip off his idea with its Dip & Squeeze single-serve ketchup packets.
We understand that the holiday season can get anyone’s duff up — it’s jungle out there, what with a shortage of Butterball frozen turkeys and all. So sure, maybe tempers were running high at a grocery store meat counter in Madison, Wis., but that’s no reason to start a food fight and use victuals as weapons. [More]
There’s a reason the seatbelt turns on during spots of turbulence when you’re on an airplane — because otherwise you might end up on the ceiling like so much spattered food.

It’s just that chaotic.
Once again, the phrase “all you can eat” is at the center of a dispute between a restaurant and a hungry customer who says he was cut off without getting his fill of fried fish.
We know when we step into a TGI Friday’s an immediate sense of peace and calm washes over us, so we’re not sure exactly how or why about 30 customers reportedly felt the need to break into a brawl at one of the restaurants in Minnesota. That’s just rude, people.
Corporate pranksters the Yes Men are inviting you to a food fight.
