I guess some people have no sense of humour. How two people thought this was "flamebait" is beyond me ...

Maybe they own a restaurant or something?

Well, I thought it was funny at the time, but as another poster pointed out, under the new rules someone could actually patent cooking, even with the existence of "prior art". And that's definitely NOT funny.

When one look at US patents one wonder why B'n'B shouldn't try to patent (and probably with success) this "trivial/everyday thing"...
