This actually happens more often than you think here. Everytime I've gone to a bar, typically there is someone selling meat (either steaks, fish or chicken). I once even stumbled onto someone selling frozen waffles. Strange indeed.

A man was taken to jail Sunday night after authorities said he started a commotion when he tried to sell a milk crate full of stolen meat at a west-side hookah house.

In his defense, smoked meats do last quite awhile.

At least once a year a dude will knock on my door trying to sell some meat from a truck. Who the hell buys meat from some druggie knocking at the front door?

I had a college roommate buy meat from a door-to-door meat salesman. The guy literally rang our doorbell and said that he had a truck full of meat for cheap. My roommate said it was good stuff, but I didn't touch it.

If it was smoked meat, I'd probably buy some.

Or Halal, even.

The customers who buy stolen meat at a Hookah House must be hipsters.

protip-when buying door to door fish it should have a strong fishy smell. the odor weakens when the fish gets old. take a taste of the raw shellfish. it should have a tangy flavor and if your lips and tongue tingle its even better. remember the 3 t's "taste a tangy tingle"

your welcome.

That reminds me, I have finished reading Make room! Make room! by Harry Harrison, yet. It's on my Kindle and I haven't gotten to the bit where Soylent turns out to be people.

Hookah House Discount Meat is people!

Well, probably not. That kind of thing only happens in Russia, it seems. Life is cheaper there and the booze tenderizes Russians. They're self-marinating! In the USA, fat people only ooze nacho cheese. Carne de burro is healthier and cheaper.

Is this a Southern thing? I have never seen anybody trying to sell meat in a bar. Mind you, I don't frequent the lowest class of bars. They call them "meat markets" but you don't usually see a lot of meat on display in Canada, especially during the winter.

We get a higher class of illegal meat merchants. For starters, there are the guys who sell lobster out of the back of their truck. They buy these legally, but re-selling them is probably illegal without a licence.

Then you have the Indians who sell salmon by the roadside. The salmon are poached. I don't mean cooked, I mean poached. The natives have a treaty right to fish for their own consumption (which the courts recently admitted) but the government does NOT acknowledge their right to fish an unlimited quantity of salmon and to sell them for profit. Their prices are excellent, however, although I have never purchased any. Cheaper than hamburger. The price on lobster has been good lately as well because of over-supply. Some of them are even well above the legal size limit.

If you want deer, moose or anything else, you can probably get it if you know somebody who hunts legally or poaches. Most legal hunters have too much of the stuff if they are successful and share with their families and maybe a few friends, so it is basically free to the consumer unless you count having to listen to hunting stories or fishing stories as "free". Personally, I charge $3.50 a pound for listening to your stories, or $12.00 an hour, which ever is less.

Be funny.

Modern hunting seems to involve salt licks and instant cameras to photograph the animals frequenting your salt licks.

This is another reason not to believe in Bigfoot. With the number of cameras out in the woods nowadays, I don't believe even a super-intelligent alien from another dimension could escape "capture" for long. I mean, cougars and leopards get caught on camera, why not Bigfoot? Their sense of smell can't be much worse than that of a deer or moose. They must smell really, really ... well. And terrible. How could you miss them around a salt lick? All wild animals need salt except obligate carnivors. That's the only possible objection to my theory.

I'm guessing he goes to bars around the corner from the restaurant district. A lot of things fall off of trucks delivering to restaurants.

I work in kind of a shiatty neighborhood. One of the local crack heads steals meat from Albertsons by stuffing it down his pants and running. If he makes it out of the store he tries to sell it around town. He calls himself the butcher. Haven't seen him in a while. Probably back in county.

See, the trick is in the marketing. You need to sell this stuff as a full-body autocolonic to the health nuts. Guaranteed to reduce your weight by 5 pound overnight!

Enjoy the Lebanese tradition of hookah smoking - rent a hookah for $10 and choose from among the house's 30 flavored tobaccos.
