Plunge Naked Into Lake And You Get A Free Sandwich

Plunge Naked Into Lake And You Get A Free Sandwich

By Robert Paul Reyes

"GREENVILLE, Maine - There`s no such thing as a free lunch anymore for Black Frog Restaurant patrons nervy enough to run down a dock and plunge naked into Moosehead Lake.

Owner Leigh Turner decided Thursday to stop giving out a free Skinny Dip sandwich " that`s thinly sliced prime rib on a baguette " for a skinny dip after the town board voted to deny his liquor license renewal application."

Associated Press

Black Frog Restaurant? Moosehead Lake? These hokey monikers indicate that Greenville, Maine is not a Mecca of style and sophistication. I`d bet that the patrons of the Black Frog Restaurant are guzzling Bud and not sipping Dom Perignon.

I`m not surprised that the local yokels get their kicks by running down a dock and plunging naked into a lake. A city boy like me would be embarrassed to be anywhere near a body of water called "Moosehead Lake."

This is one of the worst promotions of all time, who wants to see a fat guy plunge naked into a lake while dining at such a fine establishment? It`s never a Jessica Alba lookalike who takes such a dare, it`s always a fat stupid guy.
The owner of the bar came to his senses and stopped the foolish promotion, and his liquor license was reinstated.
