Funny Story I wanted to share.

Postby wrveres » Wed Apr 02, 2003 6:18 am

CARIBBEAN SPICE: Giants broadcaster Mike Krukow, talking about the Montreal Expos playing 22 "home" games in San Juan, Puerto Rico, remembered an unforgettable experience when he played winter ball there in 1976.

One day, Krukow and some teammates stopped at a roadside stand and bought some barbecued chicken. "It was absolutely delicious," he said. Later, they passed the stand and saw the owner putting out the fire, by urinating on the coals.

That was the last time Krukow stopped at a roadside stand. sfchronicle


I was laughed so hard I spit beer through my nose.

I don't get it... If the owner urinated on the coals to put out the fire, it happened *after* he barbecued the chicken. So who cares? Sounds like Krukow just being squeamish.

Heck, I work in food service and we urinate all over the place. Err, I mean... 8-o

Yes he did put the coals out with urine after the chicken was cooked and eaten, but the real question would be "Does he put the fire out with urine every evening?". That is why he was squeemish and never returned. His chicken was tainted by yesterdays urine.

Well, it's only water and a few salts anyway...

Who knows what the cooks are doing in the kitchen at any restaurant in the world and who cares as long as it tastes good?

There should have been a disclaimer with this post:
Those with a sense of humor keep moving. That might be the worst story I've ever heard. How that relates to Fantasy Baseball is beyond me. Do me a favor, next time you present a story let someone check it out before you post it.

Not to mention, heat kills germs. Even if he urinates on the coals every night, and even if he reuses the same coals, the urine would have been sterilized by fire for hours before Krukow bought his chicken. There are probably a lot more unsanitary things going on at your average roadside stand than just peeing on the fire. Heck, there are probably more unsanitary things being cooked into the food at your average "5-star" restaurant in Puerto Rico. Not every country has the same standards of cleanliness as we do.

Although I'm sure if Krukow ever hung out in the kitchen at a McDonald's, he'd never eat at a fast food restaurant again either. I say, quit being such a big baby and just eat it. Didn't you ever eat dirt as a kid? I did, and I'm not afraid to eat more. Mmm.... dirt. ;-D

Why do i get the feeling that Mr. Styles has just come up with a new BBQ recipe?


...and if you think peeing on the coals is bad, imagine what they are referring to when they sell you 'jerk chicken'
