Maybe someone else can eat 50 eggs, but my limit is about 4...

I noticed that was on today, so I'm recording it to watch later. I love that movie.

When I was a teenager, I pigged out on deviled eggs one time. Must have ate a dozen or more. For the next week, every time I burped it smelled like a...um... very sulfurous release of air. It was horrible. It sure ruined my social life for awhile

65 of them? May as well go find a cave to live in

Add a 6 pack of beer to the 50 eggs and the next day you'd better be living alone.

Great movie. I love the line " what we have here is a failure to communicate" i think I heard that little guy died recently? One of my high school buddies liked the movie so much he changed his name to Luke. Still called that today.

Oh, big deal. The real question is, can you eat 50 eggs and look like Paul Newman while doing it?
