How do you get 100% if a food item is not kept hot enough "to prevent bacteria growth"? Or 99% if serving utensils have dirt on them and cutting boards have "black, mold-like areas"? Or 95% if the bar's glass washer isn't sanitizing the glasses? "Waiter, there's a germ in my beer." "That's OK, sir, it's Beck's."

They grade on a curve? Oh, wait. That can't explain the 100%.
