Madison, the cleanest city. Where we can get diabetes at our favorite restaurants without worrying about kitchen cleanliness.

11:37 - Madison might be a clean city, but it has more than its fair share of nasty restaurants! And some of the worst service anywhere in the state! You'll die of hunger waiting on your food at McDonald's or Taco Bell in Madison.

19th century philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche (and current day - Kelly Clarkson) said (and sang) "What doesn't kill me only makes me stronger".

As one who has survived four bouts of food poisoning (A hamburger place in Starkville in 1969, a military foolishness in 1971, a now closed burger chain in Clinton in 1984 and an unnamed Mexican restaurant in Brandon's taco Tuesday about six months ago) I can see the value in knowing who got a "C".

Sadly, I have enjoyed maybe half of these poor food safety performers at some point in the past and am now confused as to how smart it would be to go back.

I guess you only die once....

Before you eat in a Chinese joint, check the area for feral cats. If you don't see any, that Kung Pao "chicken" may be Kung Pao "kitty."

This goofy " A B C" rating is so misleading to the public.

A "C' basically means the establishment failed inspection.

This is no different than relabeling test grades in the public school system.

I wish the Health Department would go back to the pass/fail system with their restaurant inspections results.

How does the McDonald's in Madison manage to pass a health inspection? The place is need of thorough steam cleaning in my opinion. Filthy!

Where is the list of restaurants for Clinton and Madison? Oh, I forgot all of their restaurants are "A" rated just like their schools.:)

Shuckers got a “C” rating based off the dirty skanks that frequent the joint. I stick my head in every now and then when I’m getting desperate but usually try to avoid.

I hate that Julep is closed. I used to love when Kingfish would specifically hang Kelly out to dry.

Haha so funny. That joke never gets old after all these years. You must be the cleverest racist in your baby boomer peer group.

I've only eaten at one of these establishments...Shuckers. Maybe I need to get out more.

Ima hang with the fine-dining critic (above) who takes his wife out to McDonalds and Taco Bell in Madison (or any other town). Bet he tells her to order water to avoid the cost of a soft drink. ....burp.

I thought Ridgeland had a no-smoking policy, even in the patio and so called open-air dining areas of restaurants. Isn't Shuckers in violation? I do enjoy the open air area but the air quality with fifteen smokers is trashy.

Heil State: If you're cruising bars and food shacks looking for a date, God help you and please allow me to give you the address of the Health Department. What's your town?

I have traveled the world and I can say with 100% accuracy that the Popeyes, McDonalds, and Burger King, all in Madison are the top three worst restaurants on the planet.

You should tell that joke to one of the brilliant Asian doctors the next time they are saving your life or your grandchildren's life at one of the hospitals in the metro. Many of them were raised by immigrant parents who operated restaurants in the metro.

The “latest C ratings” yet the list goes back to January 2018. Seems a little petty to blast restaurants that failed over a year and a half ago. And not exactly relevant.

6:54: Then don't go there. If they lose enough business, they'll change

Those of you who shout 'racist' might not recall several years back when the highly popular Chinese Buffet Restaurant on 55 frontage east in Jackson was cited and temporarily closed when the Health Department found a skint cat in a freezer. True story.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
