Fat Man’s Misery

“I’d like a Fat Man’s Misery, easy on the mayo, and a glass of buttermilk. The little lady here will have the Ruins of Karnak and a cup of Postum.”

From the menu of the Mammoth Cave Hotel. (NYPL Restaurant Menu Collection.)

    “Ruins of Karnak. American cheese.”

    Sounds like Arkansas.

    I could eat the fuck out of a “Frozen Niagara” right about now.

  6. Rick Neece on January 28th, 2012 at 5:10 pm

    At $0.45 it’s a bargain.

  7. Sheila Ryan on January 28th, 2012 at 5:10 pm

    The spelunking theme.

  8. Rick Neece on January 28th, 2012 at 5:11 pm

    AND, I imagine it’s tasty.

  9. Sheila Ryan on January 28th, 2012 at 5:12 pm

    I agree. The Frozen Niagara is a winner. Ix-nay on the emium-pray ologna-bay in the Ruins of Karnak. And the American cheese.

    Sheila, I didn’t get it at first, but now, I’ll say, “I’ll say.”

  11. Rick Neece on January 28th, 2012 at 5:14 pm

    Aw, who could say NO to a bologna sandwich (chunk, please, fried in bacon grease) on white bread with mayo?

  12. Sheila Ryan on January 28th, 2012 at 5:15 pm

    Oh, and in case you were wondering: the difference between braunschweiger and liverwurst, discussed.

  13. Sheila Ryan on January 28th, 2012 at 5:16 pm

    Okay, I’d say yes to a fried bologna sandwich. No to the American cheese.

    Danny’s favorite at The Black Forest in Minneapolis.

    I ate the shit out of it.

  16. Sheila Ryan on January 28th, 2012 at 5:33 pm

    I’d eat the fuck out of it. And gecker while I ate the fuck out of it.

  17. Sheila Ryan on January 28th, 2012 at 5:35 pm

    I wonder how many Cave Attractions currently boast restaurants? If we go on a field trip to a cave, I want to go to one with a cave-themed restaurant.

    Yellow mustard doesn’t actually exist. On the palate, at least.

    French’s Mustard: An American Classic.

    I wanted to say Premium Bologna!
