Only in America: All you can't eat

On Wednesday, Piers Morgan used his "Only in America" segment to surface in support of a bottomless fried fish special:

"Meet Bill Wisth. He really loves the all-you-can-eat fish fry at a local restaurant called Chuck's Place."

Tipping that scales at 350 pounds, Wisth paints an imposing figure at 6 feet 6 inches tall. But after getting his hooks into 12 servings of cod, the Wisconsin restaurant cut his line.

"Considering his carriage, that's like a a side salad," said Morgan of Wisth's delicious dozen. "It's simply not enough."

So the fish fan refused to take the bait. He called the cops, furious about his undersized serving.

The restaurant claimed it's hands were tied, as the seafood was in short supply:

"That may be so, but this was a contract you made with Bill. He paid for his bargain," explained the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host. "You, Chuck's Place, broke your promise. Shame on you."

Up to his gills in disappointment, Wisth plans to picket until his portion of fried fish grows to a bakers dozen.

"Brother, I salute you in this pivotal moment in the All You Can Eat movement," Morgan vowed. "Bill is holding a plate of patriotism in his hands."

A restaurant attempting to cap its own all-you-can-eat special? The concept alone, is like a fish out of water.

"To everyone who has ever been denied a 10th, 11th or 12th, or 20th serving from the endless buffet, look to Bill as your defiant and hungry leader. He will bring the fish fry home."
