"Y'all fat, and y'all eat too much."
That was what the waitress at a Houma, Louisiana Chinese restaurant told 6'3", 265 pound Ricky Labit after he and his fat(ter) relative went through the buffet line again (and again).
The two were at an all-you-can-eat buffet, and were singled out by the proprietress because of the large quantity of crab and frog legs scarfed down by Labit and his wife's cousin, Michael Borelli.
Borelli and Labit were each initially slapped with a ten ($10.00) dollar fat-ass surcharge. Eventually, the police were called; and, after some discussion, the gents were given their meals on the arm.
Ed. Note: I saw these chaps on Fox News, and I thought, for a moment, that I was watching a remake of Deliverance. Hearing these boys talk was like listening to Farmer Fran. In addition, they had the sack to criticise the proprietress of the restaurant for having limited English skills. Or, at least that what I thought they said.
And, I am still trying to wrap my head around why one eats "shrimp balls." Hell, they are so small--shrimpy, even--and it takes so many to make a meal. And, it gives Southern folk a bad name. They might as well have talked about sweet-and-sour squirrel and Moo Shu nutria.
