A common complaint of many diners is the appalling quality of most restaurants' websites. I could list the many egregious sins of these sites, but McSweeney's has published a satirical -- or is it? -- piece titled "If This Fusion Restaurant's Website Could Talk" that sums it up nicely. Here's the first two paragraphs:
HEY HEY HEY! Watch this slide show! LOOK! We have modern chairs and minimalist light fixtures!! LOOK! It's an orchid floating in a pool at sunset! Want to hear some DANCE MUSIC???? Mute it any time you like! Just click the animated parakeet flying around the screen! You want to get into the site??? Just click the smallest fork!!! DANCE MUSIC!!!!!

Welcome! LOOK! Pictures of our wall-sized aquarium!! Check out how all the links spin when you scroll the page!!!!!! DANCE MUSIC! See the bowl of noodles in the corner??? Mouse over it! WHHHHOA! Customer testimonials popped out!!!! Follow us on Twitter!!!!!
