Michael Rand started RandBall with hopes that he could convince the world to love jumpsuits as much as he does. So far, he's only succeeded in using the word "redacted" a lot. He welcomes suggestions, news tips, links of pure genius, and pictures of pets in Halloween costumes here, though he already knows he will regret that last part.

One woman's quest to eat an infinite amount of mozzarella sticks

Posted by: Michael Rand Updated July 18th at 4:12pm 267702411

America needed a new hero.

A bloated, nauseated hero.

They found her. Her name is Caity Weaver, and her quest was simple:

Last Monday TGI Friday’s unveiled a new promotion (available at many TGI Friday’s locations, but none on the island of Manhattan) whereby customers can gorge themselves on unlimited appetizers—without fear of punishment, embarrassment, or ostracization—for a one-time payment of $10. The promotion is called “Endless Appetizers.”

The day after “Endless Appetizers” was announced, I went to TGI Friday’s in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Sheepshead Bay. I wanted to challenge the hubris of a company co-opting the infinite for a marketing gimmick. I wanted to demand accountability from copywriters.

I wanted to call their bluff and eat appetizers until they kicked me out, to seek the limit of this supposedly limitless publicity stunt.

I soon learned the limit does not exist.

You can imagine what happens next, but you really can’t. Please do go ahead and read her 14-hour mozzarella stick account. Language warning, as if eating apps for 14 hours wouldn’t cause you to swear, too.
