Damnation and Salvation in the American Food Services Industry!

Spencer Sproul is a would-be serial-killing bus boy who can't manage to murder, injure, or even scare anybody. It's not for lack of trying. He sublimates on the job and becomes a star of the family-style restaurant business.

Spencer learns that a restaurant can be an instrument of torture. If the food, music, decor and waitress uniforms are "ratcheted up" to just the right levels, the place can grate subliminally on people's nerves and stimulate their masochistic tendencies. Customers come flocking. The Better Business Bureau takes notice. But, before Spencer can take his seat of honor at the Merchant of the Month Award Banquet, he must bumble his way past a pederastic restaurant critic, a trash-talking sex worker, a cellulite-worshiping convenience store clerk, and a police force filled with homophobes, overeducated commies and greedy homicide detectives.

Join Tom Bradley in an irresponsible romp through an all-American success story!
