Remember how, a few months ago, the web site TripAdvisor bestowed upon our very own Jack London Inn the great honor of being one of the dirtiest hotels in the nation, second only to the Grand Resort Hotel & Convention Center in Pigeon Forge (!!), Tennessee?? Well, this week's feature, "Inside the Dirty Inn," is a first-person account of all the disgusting details, written by a former employee and featuring special guest appearances by drunken sailors, an animal corpse, "a platoon of maggots," an "enormous black dildo," and a seemingly endless parade of hookers, pimps, and drug dealers.* One commenter compared the piece to Tom Wolfe within about five hours of its being posted; read it here (but probably not while eating).

*your move, Grand Resort!!
