The Big Texan: Free 72-Ounce Steak
Also known as “The Texas King,” the 72-ounce free steak will have you singing “I’m Henery the Eighth, I am” all the way to the emergency room. Seriously, what kind of obscene crazy crap is this? If you eat a four-and-a half-pound steak, plus shrimp cocktail, baked potato, salad, roll, and butter within an hour, the $70 dinner is on the house. Over 8,000 people have successfully stepped up to the challenge, including an 11-year old boy and a 69-year old grandmother. What is wrong with us? The steak alone provides more than enough daily calories for two people, reliable nutritional data is not available for the entire dinner, but I’m pretty confidant that the whole disaster would easily support a small family’s caloric needs for a day.
Perhaps most telling is item number 6 in the FREE 72OZ STEAK DINNER RULES: Should you become ill, the contest is over… YOU LOSE! (Please use the container provided as necessary.)
