N.L. man charged with assaulting waiter after complaint of 'too meaty' steak

ST. JOHN'S, N.L. — A Newfoundland diner is in trouble for apparently liking his steak with plenty of marble.

A 58-year-old man is facing an assault charge in St. John's after he allegedly slugged his waiter for serving a steak that was "too meaty." The incident occurred Thursday night at a downtown restaurant.

The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary alleges the man pushed the waiter and punched him in the face on his way out of the restaurant.

He has been released from custody and will appear in provincial court at a later date.
Now I know that in Newfoundland a "steak" is actually fried bologna (no, really!) but surely there's not even a Newfie on this planet dumb enough to be shocked and surprised that his steak has meat on it. I like the "maybe he likes it marbled" argument that the CP writer decides to toss out there: does a 56 year old Newfie who beats up waiters really sound like a conoissoir of fine dining?
