Herriman Saturday: February 5 1910


“Boots” Repeti is reported to have broken the world eating record (whatever that might be). He did so with an oddly timed mid-winter Thanksgiving dinner. At the Washington Navy Yard, Mr. Repeti sat down for a refreshing repast of the following:

9 pound roast turkey

1 quart cranberries

3 quarts sauerkraut

1 loaf bread

1/2 pint olive oil

1/2 gallon raw oysters

1 pint ketchup

12 stalks celery

2 gallons beer

4 glasses water

Isn’t it amazing how far we’ve progressed in a hundred years? Isn’t this pretty much the same list as the McDonald’s Super-Size Meal #6? Well, with Mountain Dew instead of beer, of course.
