Harry's Hamburgers Harry sold the best hamburgers in town and every Saturday night his customers lined up to feast on his “Specially made from a secret recipe.” Hamburgers. Business was always bright on Saturdays for Harry, all 300 pounds of him and,of course, he was all smiles. “Let me have a double, Harry.” cried one of his customers “Coming up , Bob.”Harold replied moving exceptionally fast for a man of his weight to fulfil the order. He had grown to know all of his customers by first name, even the kids and everyone liked big ,fat ,jovial Harry, yes, sir, they sure did and no one questioned where he got his meat from neither. They just ate and ate and Harry's cash register kept ringing and ringing , all sweet music to his ears. After the day's business, Harry would pack his stuff into his pickup “See you folks next week.” He would say and drove away , waving to some of his well satisfied customers. would waved back with smiles. Then there was a meat shortage in the county but this did not seem to bother Harry. He was always on time ,at his usual spot with his delicious hamburgers and his customers kept coming and coming, Then one day a customer named Bailey, out of curiosity, asked . “Say, Harry, where do you get your meat for your burgers seeing that there's such a shortage?” Harry smiled and raised a finger, winked and said “Ah, that's my little secret, Mr. Bailey, would you like another hamburger?” The matter was dropped and the question remained unanswered until one fine day another customer found the tip of a human finger, nail and all, in his hamburger. News of this atrocity spread far and wide in the county, of course, and to this day no one can find Harry and his “Specially made” hamburgers. Post Script : All those customers that recently bought Harry's “Specially made.” hamburgers were still trying to get it out of their systems. End Tweet
