The Math of Endless Shrimp

red-lobster-endless-shrimp-150.jpgA Redditor asks the hive mind: "How much shrimp would I have to eat at Red Lobster's 'Endless Shrimp for $15.99' promotion to make it a net financial loss for the restaurant?"

A lot of folks try to answer it with "math," and one Red Lobster employee pulls back the curtain: "A lot of things are overpriced in the first place so I'm sure they hardly ever lose money. The kitchen isn't as glamorous as things might seem from the dining room." [Reddit]
