Clutter, Give Me Clutter (or, a GUI that doesn’t use Google as an externalized commandline)

UX nightmare: Get the menu at a restaurant, and it has only 2 items: toast and black coffee. But if you spindle the corner just right, a hidden flap pops out with a dessert menu. And if you shake it side to side, a card with a partial list of entrees falls in your lap (not all of them, just the ones you’ve ordered recently).

When you eat at Chateau DeClutter, bring a friend. If you can pinch all 4 corners of the menu at the same time, you can request the Advanced menu, wherein you just yell the name of a food across the room, and if that’s something they make, it’ll appear in about 20 minutes, and if not, nothing will happen.
