"Can you eat our Florentine steak (a.k.a. generally about 1.5-2 lbs.) in JUST 5 MINUTES??? Then YOU WON'T PAY!!!"
Well, I suppose you won't pay monetarily speaking. Gastronomically speaking is anyone's guess.
Yes, I'll admit, I laughed out loud before whipping out my ever-present camera, but frankly, seeing something like this in Rome makes me just a little queasy. Whatever happened to the Slow Food movement? I'm now having flashbacks of huge billboards on Interstate 40 (former Route 66) from the Big Texan Steak Ranch. And I quote:
The FREE 72oz. STEAK dinner is still flourishing at the Big Texan. More than 40,000 people have attempted to consume the Free 72oz. Steak dinner since 1960. About 7,000 have succeeded. People from all over the world continue to visit us to take the challenge and claim the bragging rights.Just in case you can't visualize in ounces, that's four and a half juicy pounds, or about 2 kilos. But at least at the BTS you get a whole hour to consume your steak...
