Remember Comedy Bang Band Episode 118? Where Eddie Pepitone dropped in on a Patton Oswalt interview to talk about his life as a “diner marshal,” a top secret agent who travels the country trying to find insurgents at IHOPs?
Now, Esquire profiles the “Waffle House terrorists,” group of Georgia men charged with plotting mass murder…while holding meetings at a Waffle House:
They’d become famous for having some of their meetings in a Waffle House and a Shoney’s — famous, that is, for doing what codgers do in every community in America, and for making Americans wonder, for a moment, if instead of “solving the world’s problems,” as the codgers like to say, the codgers might really be talking about blowing it up.
