All You Can Eat Yourself to Death

All-you-can-eat buffets (AYCE) are dangerous. I should know, as I've been crippled by the best of them. An AYCE ribs and BBQ buffet at Dugan's in Oklahoma left me begging to be put out of my misery at my brother's house. One of the famous Las Vegas AYCE restaurants sent me to bed and made me miss a final late-night burst of gambling. And I spent more than one adolescent Friday night rubbing my stomach after too much fried flounder at Howard Johnson's.

I wonder how some of the people who participated in the Guinness Book's world record AYCE buffet are feeling today... I bet the city's Tums consumption shot through the roof.
