So, there's a mall near work that we sometimes lunch at. Within said mall, there is a teriyaki place, standard 500 pounds of chicken frying constantly, add teriyaki, boom - lunch. Right next to this place is a Thai Kitchen place. And it's basically the same, but with more choices. One isn't really hibachi and the other isn't really Thai.

Well, there is somewhat of a war going on between the two places. They have dueling sample guys. If customers are loitering, unsure, they will both yell out to them - verbally enticing. All is well and good and makes for interesting lunch watching (perhaps over some Chick-Fil-A).

But the really clincher, and the guy I can watch all day is the teriyaki guy. When someone is wavering he'll say, "Try some [something-something]! YUMMY, YUMMY." And the way he says YUMMY YUMMY is pretty much the most hilarious thing ever. After the YUMMY, YUMMY, if the person doesn't get in line - death stare. He's the kind of guy I could write a hit play for.

Ok, I am 3 paragraphs in and that's really the entire story. You see, it's funny. I know it's funny; work buddies know it's funny. But how can I convey the funniness to you without having a video? I really can't. Just remember: YUMMY YUMMY.

We're talking about Sakkio, the Scourge of Cleveland Food Courts, right? My fellow co-workers refer to their product as "mucous chicken," given its excessively slimy consistency when it comes out of the bucket (yes, they store the chicken in a bucket).
