Over the weekend, the Bad Deal's Ryan Sutton took on Groupon's $20 for $10 IHOP deal in New York, writing "Groupon is targeting low-income Americans with CINN-A-STACK® pancakes and other junk food items at extraordinarily low prices at an everyday restaurant." (Also, it's only redeemable Monday-Thursday and is thus not available for weekend hangover breakfasts.) He also made the argument that chains should be required to post calorie counts on daily deal sites because they're technically "a point of ordering."

Aw, Sutton, broke Americans need access to empty calories, too. What, you expect them to live off the $2 rabbit food over at Subway for the rest of their lives?
