Weigh In, Weigh Out

Weigh in at the door. Eat. Weigh out at the cash register. Subtract in from out. The difference is the weight of what you ate. Pay by the pound you ate.

You have to weigh out and back in if you hit the can (restroom).

So I could wear 20 pounds of lead around my waist, hide it in the washroom, and then leave with the establishment owing me money for my dinner?

It's because of people like you, Giblet, that they had to start doing naked weigh-ins at the Mustardface Buffet.

There are some buffets where they weigh just your PLATE. But that makes it too easy.

what's the going rate for a pound of lead these days?
-- po, Feb 13 2005

Pounds of flesh are on the rise, at least at the local exchange rate.+

You surely can't use it for collateral on a ship anymore.

[Giblet], the bathroom bilge drop wouldn't work: 170 weigh in to restaurant; 171 weigh out to restroom; drop 5 in restroom; 166 weigh in from restroom; 167 weigh out at cash register. You ate 2.

[po], between $1 and $2 USD a pound when configured for scuba diving purposes.

170 weigh in to restaurant, drop 5 somewhere inconspicuous, 170 weigh out. Pay nothing. Urgh.

but what about the bulimics?
-- dentworth, Feb 14 2005

Dude(ette?) [dentworth], bulimics would do it in the restroom, weighing out, weighing in. The restaurant is fine with it. They can eat 2 or 3 times if they want.

37.3 cents / pound. Cheaper than food. Drink lots of water before you enter.

I'll have the saffron *anything* and 8 oz. lobster tail then.
