Where you wanna eat, Waco?

Where you wanna eat, Waco?

When I say I believe the enjoyment of dining out is universal, I'm not necessarily using hyperbole.

Maybe it's actually a galactic phenomenon.

"The History of every major Galactic Civilization tends to pass through three distinct and recognizable phases," writes Dougas Adams in his epic Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy, "those of Survival, Inquiry and Sophistication, otherwise known as the How, Why and Where phases. For instance, the first phase is characterized by the question How can we eat? the second by the question Why do we eat? and the third by the question Where shall we have lunch?"

Let me emphasize that last bit. The ultimate philosophical question a civilization can ask itself is "Where shall we have lunch?"

In Central Texas terms, we think that translates as "Where you wanna eat?"
