      I've been trying very hard to bring my Mongolian Braised Lizard Lips to the fine-dining market here, but it's been a little slower than I had hoped and I'm still not moving more than 20 or 30 lips a day, even on weekends. One of the restaurants wanted to offer a special - 5 lips for a dollar, but I said "What am I supposed to do with the left-over lip? Lizards come with two lips, you know!" I hate spoilage.

      Naturally, this means that my lizard corral is getting crowded and now I'm having to pay a whole crew of lizardboys just to herd 'em to pasture and back...the bank is threatening to call my loan and I might have to give up on the idea. And I had such a good promo, too: "Lizard Lips - Lip-Smackin' Good Eats, You Betcha!"...

        A good marketing campaign would be 5 for a dollar "plus one free". That would help move the stock and allow more money for you to build lizard highrise condo's in the space that is freed up.

          SecTrainer,
          PM me I may be able to distibute your lizard lips down here. We have restaurants that specialize in lips. You may have heard of them, the french restaurant is "lèvres de lézard", and the portuguese one is "bordos do lagarto". We also have a shortage of chicken lips here. Since we have had an influx of illegal immigration our supplies are low.

            Oh, wow - this is great! I have a huge supply of chicken lips because I had tried those before the lizards and they didn't go over at all! Will forward entire stock of chicken lips by next UPS truck at no charge to you as it will save me from paying any more storage charges!

                            Yes, yes I do. No onions, double steak, double cheese, wiz. There was a transplant in Florida that was right next to my site. My lunch hour was 1 foot long philly, fries, and coke. It was very good.

                            The guys had bread and steaks shipped in daily, and would post the box (broken down) and the invoice from the bakery in Philly on a message board, under a large sign that said "REAL PHILLY STEAKS."

                              Philly cheese steak is wonderful, tried them in a few states including PA and Calif.

                              HotelSecurity, poutine may not be well known outside Ontario Quebec, but it is good. As with most good foods though, all in moderation.
