Meat hanging From The Ceiling

A man walks into a bar and sees two pieces of meat hanging from the ceiling.

Confused, he asks the bartender "why do you have meat hanging from your ceiling?"

The bartender says "I'm glad you asked, currently we have a challenge going on where if you can jump up and slap both pieces of meat with your hands I'll cover your tab for the whole rest of the night. However, if you attempt to slap the meat and miss, you have to pay for everyone else's drinks in the bar until we close."

The bartender looks back at the customer and asks "So what do you say, would you like to give the challenge a shot?"

The customer quickly responds with a "No."

"Why not?" The bartender asks.

The customer replies, "The stakes are too high."

The Horse

A young man named Chuck bought a horse from a farmer for $250.

The farmer agreed to deliver the horse the next day.

The next day, the farmer drove up to Chucks house and said, ‘Sorry son, but I have some bad news, the horse died.’
Chuck replied, ‘Well, then just give me my money back.’

The farmer said, ‘Can’t do that. I went and spent it already.’

Chuck said, ‘Ok, then, just bring me the dead horse.’

The farmer asked, ‘What ya gonna do with him?

Chuck said, ‘I’m going to raffle him off.’

The farmer said, ‘You can’t raffle off a dead horse!’

Chuck said, ‘Sure I can, Watch me. I just won’t tell any body he’s dead.’

A month Later, the farmer met up with Chuck and asked, ‘What happened with that dead horse?’

Chuck said, ‘I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at five dollars a piece and made a profit of $2495.’

The farmer said, ‘Didn’t anyone complain?’

Chuck said, ‘Just the guy who won. So I gave him his five dollars back.’

Goose Neck Barnacle

Live gooseneck barnacles are a very rare and special gourmet delicacy. Typically this product is found only in Portugal and Spain, and can cost up to $80 per pound.  The act of harvesting these barnacles is very difficult, and often times treacherous because of how the barnacles grow: on large, slippery boulders jutting out into the ocean, exposed to the constant barrage of the ocean. This makes the availability of this product very variable as a number of factors must be weighed before they can be safely harvested.
The flavor of gooseneck barnacles is somewhere between crab and razor clam, and reminiscent of a mildly briny oyster; they are soft in texture, with a gentle resistance. They are typically the size of your thumb or index finger, with approximately 30 to 40 pieces in a pound.

Book Cover Cliches

How it works

If there's one thing every self-respecting blockbuster novel needs on its cover, it's a silhouetted man with his back to the reader, walking away, alone.
It's a style that tells you, with all the subtlety of a sledgehammer, that the book's protagonist is likely to be a maverick who doesn't play by the rules and does things his own way.
Real-world examples include James Patterson (The Family Lawyer), Lee Child (just about any of his Jack Reacher series) and Linwood Barclay (Parting Shot).
