One of the best things about TM employees putting one over on the boss and half of them taking vacation the same week is the sweet revenge Dwight plans in their absence. He turned a negative into a positive, declared Friday (today) Trademark Productions Employee Appreciation Day and ordered in lunch for everybody! Our caterer of choice? Lockhart’s BBQ just behind the office. But this turned out to be more than just a normal lunch.
You see, resident I-will-never-be-outdone COO Dean tried a sandwich last week from Lockhart’s called the Quadruple Bypass and only made it 66% through before throwing in the towel. He not only had to finish a side-item, but he then had to make his way through a 1 pound combination of pulled pork, smoked bacon, smoked sausage, smoked ham and, topping it off, smoked cheddar served on a grease-soaked bun. As an added bonus, there’s a Ding-Dong included for dessert.
Ryan decided to take on Dean’s record of 66% and show him up. The results, while spectacular and a bit dicey at times, were truly terrifying. Ryan managed his feat, but only because of the surrounding co-workers cheering and jeering him on!
Did we get to try the Chocolate Dr. Pepper Cake? No. The Berry or Peach Cobbler? No. The Pecan Pie? No. Yet it was still a tremendous riot to see Ryan stomp the living daylights out of Dean’s record and set the bar for maintaining a healthy heart.
Congratulations, Ryan! You’re an inspiration to us all.
And be sure to check out Lockhart’s in Royal Oak! We’re sure Dean will be heading there one work day soon to outdo Ryan.
