“Horrifying Vegetarians Since 1980” (The Post House)
A memorable ad for The Post House restaurant featured a sharp knife with the slogan "Horrifying Vegetarians Since 1980."

The slogan has been taken/stolen by another restaurant establishment in another city, and different horrifying dates have been assigned by diferent websites.
