    A landmark fast food drive-in restaurant in Maine is now up for sale.

    The Fat Boy in Brunswick, which has been selling burgers, fries and lobster rolls since the 1950s, has previously announced it was closing for the season in August. The Times Record reports a "For Sale" sign has been affixed to the business's marquee sign.

    Owners Jeanne and Ken Burton have been running the business since the 1980s. Fat Boy grilled up its first burger in 1955, across the road from the former Brunswick Naval Air Station.

    Brokers Magnusson Balfour listed the reason for sale as retirement, but the listing doesn't mention the restaurant by name.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.
