The deadline for The Low-Carb Contest — which includes two 750-gram rib-eye steaks, two gin martinis and an avocado salad from Flamme as the prize – finished over two weeks ago. Like I was growing the avocado for the salad in my apartment and waiting for it to ripen. Or I was in a coma after eating “The Tomahawk“, a 1.6 kilogram steak Flamme occasionally stocks. Instead, I’ll blame it on someone taking my computer. Specifically, this guy. Blame him.
Anyway, the idea was to finish this sentence: “This steak is so big _______.” Lots of clever stuff among the more than 40 ideas submitted. Here are three of my favorites:
- That steak is so big that when you climb to the top of it your ears pop. – Charlie
- That steak is so big, if it was in the South China Sea, Beijing would be registering a claim for historical sovereignty. – Mark
- [That steak is so big] you need a shovel to flip it. – JK
Steven Schwankert of SinoScuba helped with the draw. As usual, I wrote the names of the entrants of small pieces of paper, crumpled them, and stuck them in a cup. Schwankert then scrambled them and picked one. And the winner is joed.
Enjoy the prize and thanks to Flamme and to everyone who entered.
