I've Eaten A Hamdog!

Written by Ed Williams

Continued from page 1

Know what I like best about Chandler and Mulliganís? They donít wimp out and give in to all these health food nuts, they go 100% flat out for taste, and their food shows it. I left feeling very satisfied, except forrepparttar fact thatrepparttar 135564 fried Twinkie got me inrepparttar 135565 mood for more sugar, so onrepparttar 135566 way back I stopped off at a Dairy Queen and quaffed down a large Butterfinger Blizzard. After eating that I was totally satisfied, and when I arrived back home I felt like a king.

Let me go ahead and answer a few questions that IĎm guessing yĎall might have:

1. I didnít get sick at all, in fact, I felt mongo satisfied after eating my hamdog, fried Twinkie, and large Butterfinger Blizzard. Slept like a Foskey infant all night long.

2. A hamdog alone is worthrepparttar 135567 trip up to Mulliganís. Whatís better is that youíll enjoyrepparttar 135568 sandwich, Chandler, andrepparttar 135569 bar. Believe me, that hamdog wouldnít have been near as good had notrepparttar 135570 establishment andrepparttar 135571 owner been so cool.

3. Proof that I aterepparttar 135572 hamdog will soon be up on my website (URL is atrepparttar 135573 bottom of this column). Yes, thatís right, pictures were made of this momentous occasion. Thereís one of Chandler and I andrepparttar 135574 hamdog, and then one of my plate after IĎd eaten it. I donít want anyone challengingrepparttar 135575 validity of my accomplishment or anything.

And there you have it,repparttar 135576 complete account of my first ever hamdog. Itís one ofrepparttar 135577 greatest food items imaginable, and thank God Chandler has the, ummm, character to make them. Itís a wonderful sandwich served in a wonderful bar, and thatís me being really low keyed about it. Hamdogs are yet another tasty reason that Iím really, really proud to be a Georgian...
