Diners at a restaurant in London were given an unexpected serving of meat last week. According to the London Evening Standard, Jimmy's — a buffet-style restaurant — aired gay porn on its dining room TV screens, shocking diners. Jade Miller, who was eating at the restaurant with her young children, was quite upset over the incident.

"[My children] think it was a four-legged man shaking his willy about. How I would have explained it God only knows."

Her kids went to the restroom, and on the way back they informed her that "something really funny" was playing on the screens. Miller went to look and "saw full blown sex." She explains that it was really graphic, and that she is relieved her kids are too young to understand what was happening: "[My children] think it was a four-legged man shaking his willy about. How I would have explained it God only knows." When the X-rated video continued to play, Miller went to the manager and eventually called the police. Officers told the paper they believed "the material was shown as a result of a pop-up received by the restaurant's email booking system."

Jimmy's isn't the first restaurant to accidentally play porn for its diners. In December, a McDonald's in Switzerland aired "incredibly explicit pornography at full volume" on the television inside the restaurant for about an hour. Apparently, a customer requested a German sports channel but that channel switched over to adult programming later in the evening.
