Mr. Krabs would not approve

This would never have happened if Mr. Eugene H. Krabs was in charge of Red Lobster.

From Joe Bob’s Week in Review:

Edna Morris was booted as president of the Red Lobster restaurant chain after her all-you-eat crab dinner promotion triggered a sell-off of shares and wiped out $405.9 million of stock value in one trading session. The dinner was priced at $22.99, but so many people went back for third and fourth helpings, and wholesale crab prices rocketed up so quickly, that the company had to write off $3.3 million for the first quarter. Customers still searching for the “Endless Crab Dinner” will be told by their waiter, “You’ll love our fish sticks!”
