So Integrilicious you can almost taste it!

One of our Integrilerity Scouts, David (Austin Tx) has once again proven his merit by forwarding this example of Integrimismem to us:
WASHINGTON, DC — Citing a longstanding need to "restore honor and dignity to the American food-service industry," Sens. John McCain (R-AZ) and Russ Feingold (D-WI) announced the public debut of their joint business venture Monday, a chain of integrity-themed restaurants which opened in 12 locations nationwide.

Other menu items at Russ & John's include the "All You Can, In Good Conscience, Eat" buffet; Grandma's Favorite Mashed Potatoes, which comes with gravy, coleslaw, and a signed affidavit from Irene Feingold, the senator's paternal grandmother, confirming that they are, in fact, her favorite mashed potatoes; and John's Hot & Spicy Jalapeño Poppers.

McCain said the staff has been trained to deliver "straight talk" to customers.

"Their heart is in the right place, but I don't ever see myself eating there, especially when there's a McConnell's Pork Barrel right across the street," said Sen. George Allen (R-VA), referring to the barbecue-style eatery owned and operated by Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell, known for its controversial "lawmakers-and-campaign-donors-eat-free" policy.
While we at the award winning Blog Integrity salute the Senators for their outstanding and exemplary efforts to encourage Integritocity in the mainstream, we have to ask, "Is it enough?". To which we quote Sen. Ted Stevens: "NO!!"



Sorry, fellas, it'll take a lot more than some chicken strips and day old guacamole to garner our praise and endorsement. We are, after all, pretty damned close to the zenith of Integrilunction here and have standards which would make a Six Sigma blackbelt weep in the supply room.

But thanks to David (Austin Tx) for bringing it to our attention. He has now earned enough points that we shall award him the Ring of the Mighty InteGriffin.



Huzzah!! Now, you might be thinking, "Hey, that's not a Griffin..." I know - I just told you it's an InteGriffin. Christ, pay attention, people! Fuck's sake...

Anyhoo - there's a secret ceremony that accompanies the awarding of the ring, but I can't describe it here because the secret cabal that Thers, NTodd, Phila, The Black Cat (Espanol) and I operate is so secret that we can only communicate with each other via e-mail and this blog. Suffice to say, if you ever see one of us mentioning 'Chicken-in-a-Bisket', you should avert your eyes and think of something else for several minutes, such as Plato's Republic or Joan Jett. Strange workings are in the works... Also, don't mention anything to Atrios, Kos, Siegel, Zenergerlerle or Judith Miller. Just... don't...

Congratulations again, David!!
