He Told Me He Could Eat'em?
by Carl LeMay
wonder if any of you remember the "contest" I had one
night "after" hours?
sorry to say I can't remember his name, but one of the
younger RAS guys, well he told me he could eat 3 of my
sandwiches in ONE sitting.
to make a long story short, I offered him a carton of
cigarettes and $20.00 if he could do it. If he couldn't,
he had to pay for the 3 sandwiches.
word spread fast throughout the Midway and the next day by
12:45 a.m. my store was packed with RAS members.
put a stool on the counter and he started to eat, there
goes the first sandwich.
Everyone cheered as he finished, then the second one
disappeared down the old gullet. (I haven't found to many
people that could finish one of my sandwich, let along two
without being stuffed)
he started on the third sandwich and I think he must have
been filling up fast, this one took him a little longer,
we all stood there in amazement as he finished the last
paid the debt and he wondered off down the midway, I went
to bed wondering how the heck ANYONE could have eaten two
of my sandwiches let along three.
the next morning after I opened, it didn't take long
before folks started showing up to tell me what happened
after the "BIG" event.
guy didn't even make it to the end of the dock before
puking his guts, and my sandwiches, all over the alley!!!
