I was reading an article on Pulse about the bad things that can happen if you don't secure a domain name. (http://mashable.com/2013/02/20/guy-fieri-domain-name/)

Apparently Guy Fieri, celebrity charicature of himself, didn't and someone claimed the domain name put up a fake menu (http://guysamericankitchenandbar.com/).

It is quite funny. My favorite dish is the Panamania!

Wow. Apparently people make a living stealing domain names that expire and holding them for resale. I wonder if that's what he's doing here. Sure, the old owners can get a new page but if people accidentally still go to this one, it could be bad.

Very creative menu, though.

No this is a new restaurant. It is more what you saw in the early nineties when people started buying up domain names of famous people and places, creating ridiculous parodies to try and shamemail the true owners in paying above market value for the domain name.

Can I get the "Hobo Lobo Bordello Slam Jam" and a "Football: The Meal" to go?

Can you imagine them chucking the garbage back at your car from the drive through? :rofl:
