Link Buffet: April 26, 2008

The Indepedent of London has an article about the oyster eating challenge at Wintzell’s Oyster House in Mobile Alabama:

The genuine smile is harder to find in the US than anywhere else on earth. On the East and West coasts, people smile because they’re feeling smug. But in Alabama, people smile because they want you to be happy. It’s evident in the 1920s canteen-style interior of Wintzell’s, where the walls are covered with ancient, handwritten signs of folksy, homespun wisdom (“Unfortunately, there is a widespread view that the proper lubricant for a political machine is palm oil rather than elbow grease” is one example).

An Indepedent reporter took a tour with Famous Fat Dave in New York City.

    The Phillips crabcake contest says no pros, so AICE people should be able to enter. Right?

    Anony 10:56,

    Can’t you reasonably say the same thing for anyone outside the ifoce’s top 5, certainly its top ten.

    Doesn’t the greatest hot dog eater of all, not consider himself to be a professional?!?

    Hasn’t the legendary Kobayashi said something like ‘to be a professional one doesn’t die’?
