Today in the news...

This morning at the Black Thistle Buffet, diners were in the middle of their breakfast...

when things suddenly turned ugly. Hungry patrons tried to bully their way in.

Some tried a less hostile approach and just tried to sneak in the back door.

"I've never seen anything like it!" one diner told a reporter from WICU news. "I mean, here we were eating, and the restaurant suddenly got crowded and other patrons started demanding my seat!"

The diners reportedly had to watch their backs as they tried to finish their meals.

The hungry crowd was relentless, hovering and fighting as if they hadn't seen food in weeks.

One thing's for sure, the Black Thistle Buffet did a brisk business this morning and it was flying room only for most of the breakfast rush. The owners are considering opening a second restaurant, but with the cost of food so high, they're not sure if the payoff would be worth it.

What a fun story!

Colorful birds at a feeder always brings a smile to my face! People at an 'all you can eat' restaurant ... not a pretty site!
