    The folks at Guy Fieri's American Kitchen & Bar ? you know, the Times Square restaurant that was http://www.businessinsider.com/lunch-at-guy-fieris-restaurant-2012-12 ? apparently forgot to buy up domain names related to the brand name.
    The real website for Fieri's restaurant is http://www.guysamerican.com/.http://guysamericankitchenandbar.com/, however, doesn't take you to a Fieri-owned website.
    Now someone has put up a funny parody menu of Fieri's restaurant at the site, loaded with offerings like Captain Beefheart and Football: The Meal.
    We realize there are a lot of variations of a domain name that pranksters can hijack, but c'mon man ? it doesn't get any more simple than the actual name of the restaurant.
    UPDATE: It appears that programmer Bryan Mytko is the man who snatched up the domain name. Well played, sir.
    Guy Fieri didn't register his restaurant's domain name, so I picked it up. I think this new menu look greathttp://t.co/4wr1KjkQ

    Iono man, 22 pounds of kalamata olives for $15.90 sounds like a steal to me.
