Amazing feats of daring do

When I was a young man in my full power with courage and strength that I no longer have, I was able to beat everyone who challenged me in an eating contest. Taco Bell was new at the time and to get people in the door they would sell tacos 5 for a dollar. Friends and family gathered for an evenings fun and I battled 6 young adults in eating tacos. My score of 12 tacos beat the next best by two.

Today I can't eat two tacos, heck I wouldn't eat at Taco Bell now.

Switch to Jack-in-the Box(Jacks) tacos. They help keep your bowels in an uproar. ~ss

Tacos

Jack-in-the-Box; I used to love those tacos. Rat meat is high in protein.

In Cody Ludin's classic, required reading "When All Hell Breaks Loose", he states that he and his family eat rats every few months just to stay up on how to catch, clean, cook and eat them. Yep. For real.

Like I said, his book is required reading for all people that want to survive disasters. Lots of great information in it.

Yep, we would buy a bunch of Krystal burgers. I guess it's like a White Castle. I think I could eat eight or so. Now days I can only eat 3.

I eat Taco Bell about every couple of weeks. Believe it or not there are a lot of hispanics that eat there too.

Speaking of eating tacos, whats the difference between a magician and a whorehouse. The magician has a cunning array of stunts.

why did he make it look like a Taco !"

Always wanted to have this t-shirt printed up for me with the picture of a sexy mermaid on it. After reading this thread I think I will!
