Burgers at the Cafe

Burgers at the Café

Busy family stopped for hamburgers.
Grouchy children were extremely hungry.
Waitress brought to table burgers and coke. 
Lonely woman in cafe winked at man.
Platter placed on table had burnt French fries.
Hungry patron broke bottle of ketchup.

Patient waitress cleaned up sticky ketchup.
Little boy could not eat raw hamburgers.
No one in the family could eat fries.
Money was spent and everyone hungry.
Wife slapped the woman looking at her man.
Woman hit wife with a bottle of coke.

Manager made the woman pay for coke.
Woman saturated man with ketchup.
Police came to café to talk to man.
Children wanted to eat more hamburgers. 
Mother ensures children are not hungry.
Family did not order any more fries. 

Family told cook to keep nasty fries. 
Woman was charged with assault with a coke.
Woman carried to jail mad and hungry.
Wife used wet napkin to remove ketchup.
Man and wife sat down to eat hamburgers.
Waitress gave large restaurant bill to man.

Manager discussed the large bill with man.
Man said he was not paying for burnt fries.
Manager agreed and charged for hamburgers.
Restaurant did not charge the man for coke.
Wife wondered how she would remove ketchup.
Man said he will go elsewhere when hungry. 
Everyone entering café looked hungry.
People stared at the ketchup covered man. 
People learned of incident with ketchup.
People advised not to order the fries.
Man said wife was hit with bottle of coke.
Everyone advised to eat the hamburgers.

Customers were happy with hamburgers. 
They each ate until they were not hungry.

Everyone ordered sprite instead of coke. 
Spirit in café kept lively by man.

Cook improved cooking time for tasty fries.
Customers opted not to use ketchup.
