German triathlete banned from Japanese buffet restaurant after gobbling up 100 plates of sushi, World News - AsiaOne

I don't want to drop names, but here is a listing off all of the restaurants someone we all know has been banned from.

https://www.mainstreetwooster.org/dining

Not affiliated blah, blah.

Although the bayLobster cafe, may still allow him in, since he choked on a bone, before getting through his 5 plate of the Giant, Inhuman Seafood Platter.

He does starve himself for 3 days beforehand, and only consumes, fermented donut batter, which he claims gives him the youthful, vigor of an 80 year old, after hip replacement surgery, (the titanium one, l might add).

The Coral Restaurant wasn't listed as the Court Proceedings are still pending, and fumigation is still taking place.

    Sushi is not food, unless you're a cat.

    They made a mistake. The restaurant should have taken photos...and used this as publicity for their food/restaurant. The Triathlete cold have been the spokesperson for the restaurant.

    The story could have gone viral as marketing. Now it goes viral as a statement about how cheap the restaurant owner is.

    The beauty of buffets is that most people are really hungry when they arrive..and assume they will east a ton of food. But by the second plate, they are pretty full....

    And of course, they forget all that the next time they are hungry.

    My favorite buffet s in Las Vegas, a seafood buffet...very high quality. It cost $40 a person. Of course, almost nobody eats more than $5 worth of food. But if you are hungry, it sounds like a great deal.

    I remember talking to a friend, right after we left that seafood buffet. I said "That's how you charge $40 for a $5 meal".

      I made the same point on Facebook yesterday...are you now stealing my marketing ideas too?


      And speaking of Las Vegas, I took a casino marketing class and the prof showed a clip of Benny Binion who owned Binion's Horseshoe. He told a story of how a guy came in to his casino and wanted to bet something like $700,000 on a single craps roll. Since this was way over the table limit, the craps dealer called Binion for permission to accept the bet.


      Binion approved the bet. The guy rolls the dice and wins, the casino loses. The next day Binion sent out a press release about how a gambler won $700,000 on a single roll of the dice. In the interview I watched, Binion said it was the best thing he ever did and his casino was packed for a time afterward and he made the money back many times over.




      Binion said in the clip

    Did a bit of digging around Wooster, and it looks like your typical sleepy town, apart from, (the cars on the wrong side of the road of course)...



    I am sure that this is a hat.

    They actually sell those hard to eat Mexican things, that Australians won't touch, since they go everywhere, (l won't post images as it is pushing the not affiliated thing, and it is hideous).



    Let's move on, and no l didn't Photoshop this.



    Kirby vacuums, a couple of hundred metres from Claudes store, gulp.

    Downunder, l would say that is infringing AU copyright laws. I don't care if they are undertakers.

    And as long as he stays away from the bubblegum machine, all is well.

    PS I know that it is probably excavators, but undertakers in a shopping ctr gets more laughs.

      The Players Lounge just closed...no idea why.
      By the way, for several years, under the Sweeper Store sign, I had a 2 sided sign that said Vacuum Cleaners. But when the gambling place opened up, they had to replace my panels on the sign.

      The Kirby sign is just two buildings away. They haven't been there for maybe 10 years...but the building owner refuses to take the sign down..until that space is filled again. It's very confusing to our customers...especially when they can't find us.

        Breaking news: If they can't find you, they aren't customers. Customers have to actually buy something to be customers.

          Claude sends out one of his whipping boys daily with a Sandwich board to attract potential customers.

          It's always a crab shoot with his staff..who wants to stand out in the hot sun all day wearing a heavy sandwich board , or who wants to stay in and be periodically sandwiched between the big sweaty manager and the wall.

          The lucky remaining one who did not pick the short straw just has to go out and buy the sandwiches at lunch time.

    The Sweeper Store Players Lounge refers to a couple of rocking chairs Claude put out the back porch. There he holds regular Sweepstakes.

    Wooster has a Basil?!

    Claude, if you haven't been, you should grab Cheryl and go there for dinner. Great thai food. Excellent pad thai, curries, and chicken satay.

    Oh, and you're fat. There. My insult streak is intact.

    "Fred Blogs, world famous Triathlete Tries everything on the menu, and when he's finished.. he pays up and never does a runner. The food is that good."

    I'm not charging for this (is it any wonder)

  • Wow!

    I could not gobble that kinda stuffs evah.

    Bein' real waif-like, I ain't got no place to fit in alla that heavy dooty food overload.

    Which is why I favor gobblin' out on liquids.

    An' lately I been gowin' crazy for tomato juice -- partly cos most healthy mediterranean dietstuffs're fueled by tomatoes, but also cos if I swig it down real hearty an' it squirts outta my mouth an' dribbles offa my lips I kinda look real VAMPIRE.

    tbh, ima now inspired to investigate zucchini smoothies on a whim ...

    Right after I came home from Vietnam, a bunch of us piled into a friend's car on a Sunday afternoon and drove to the Collegeville Inn for an "all-you-can-eat," smorgasbord. We smoked black hash for the entire drive and when we got there all we did was eat and laugh.

    We ate 'mass quantities,' until they politely asked us to leave and we laughed all the way home.

    That place was famous for many decades, as was our ability to torch massive quantities of black hash.

    1969 was a very good year.

    I see that they turned the place into a retirement center a few years back. Gone, but never to be forgotten.

    Yep, hard to make out, it may be Solicitors, but since it is Wooster, Undertakers is my bet, lol.

    The Google van took those 3D images in 2017, which is better than Australian ones that are 10 years ago.

    Gambling, Australia would never allow gambling in an area like that, pokies and Keeno are the best we can expect. Although l have started seeing Tattoo parlours in shopping centres, which is weird enough.

    And Claude went to all of that expense, by posting flyers in all of the Wooster feather emporiums and gun stores, pfft.

    Not true, he usually goes out in the hot sun, with a 20 layer, bubble wrap suit on and black top hat, getting new customers for his dungeon weekly meetups.

    Coming into his store, sweating profusely may be great for weight loss, but for some reason the store empty's.

    I don't know why, him on the side of the road, yelling "Yeah, Ha" and cracking a whip, does tend to stop traffic, (there have only been 7 accidents over the last 5 years, and one arrest).

    And one restraining order, but that was food related.
