So let me tell ya, when there's free samples of steak, people will gather around and hover like a pack of wolves. Upon passing the steak at first it was about half cooked. I wasn't going to wait around to have a sample. That was until ten minutes later I saw a crowd gathering around the station--I knew I had to get in on the action. I recognized one lady who was patiently waiting around the station the moment the steak hit the grill. As people pushed and shoved their way to the front of the station, I thought it would be an excellent opportunity to get this on video. I had my plastic green toothpick ready and waiting, so the moment we were given the cue it was a free for all to get delicious morsels of Australian beef.
The following scene reminded me of that scene from Jurassic Park, when the T-Rex and the velociraptors got their meals by devouring live cattle put inside the electric pens. After ten seconds of shaking in the bushes and growling sounds, there would be nothing left but bits and pieces of cartilage. That was how this little scene played out in my head:
Did you notice that dirty little trickster planted out in front just kept on eating? The little bugger stole my thunder. At least I managed to quickly pull my double poke technique and score two pieces of beef, which would probably equate to 10,000w (maybe a slight exaggeration). The unfortunate aftermath of all this? The lonely pieces of onion and green pepper left sitting idle on the grill, withering away until they are dumped into the garbage can (the food compost garbage of course).
Here's a clip of all the food eaten by dinosaurs posted on YouTube, a fitting video for this post:
