Football and betting are words that often go together, alas, in this case, however, we are far from the bleak scenarios of match-fixing, but this does not mean that the bet is less diabolical.
This is the now mythical bet of Hello conceived by Beppe Signori, a famous footballer in the nineties and a member of the national team, during a boring football retreat of Lazio on the Modena Apennines of Lazio, which in 2000 was his team.
The bet consisted in being able to eat a whole Buondì in the time frame necessary to take thirty steps, without adding any "additive" that would represent an aid to complete the enterprise, that is to say without generous spreads of jam, various creams or any other means that could facilitate chewing, swallowing and therefore the success of the test.
Said this way it seems easy, but in the face of facts the undertaking has proved so arduous that no one has ever managed to complete it.
And this certainly not due to the demerit of the famous snack - although, like the majority of packaged snacks, with a "slightly" dry consistency and certainly not comparable to the fragrance of a soft French fresh croissant fresh from pastry - but due to objective difficulty, indeed overt impossibility of the company.
Being able to gorge on an entire industrial briochina without the help of soaking or "softening" creams in the time of thirty steps is honestly impossible: trying is believing.
And the then national Beppe was so convinced of the impossibility of the undertaking, that he even bet one million against fifty thousand of the old lire. Then concluding the battle with the same mocking phrase: "leave the fifty in the hands of Peppino".
Well, as it turns out, Beppino over the years has never had to unpick the million old cucuzze placed on the plate, while on the contrary he seems to have pocketed quite a few fifties.
And years later the old bet has not only never gone to the attic, but is still popular on Youtube, even in a more modern version, that is to say it can also be replicated with other more current snacks, such as Kinder Brioss.
And who knows if anyone has ever recognized Buondì any royalties for the bets won?
How are chicken burgers made? Easy, you push the hen still alive between the gears of the infernal machinery and he plucks it, peels, bones, shears and chops. The still hot chicken comes out of a tube as bones, skin and feathers run out… naaah, forget it. This video is not stuff for spineless gastrofighetti […]
It is so simple to make broth! Of course, you have to decide what kind of broth you want to make, but for a cup of soup broth or broth in tonic exception, just buy a piece of hen (from a good family) a piece of beef (very muscular and with bone good), an onion to stick with the […]
TripAdvisor: Not happy with bringing a restaurant that has never opened to # 1 in London, it actually opens
Thus was born "The Shed at Dulwich", an exclusive restaurant that is always fully booked and soon becomes the number one in London for TripAdvisor. Despite a not inconsiderable detail: it never existed
I confess to Bernardi the publisher, and to you fork mates, that I have a lot of sin: I did it by eating at the restaurant with a Groupon voucher. I knew not to buy the dinner of a lifetime with the convenient coupon but at least a little warmth. The facts: months ago I joined a deal for carnivores: home appetizer, […]
Tourists return to Florence and the bivouacs on the steps of the Uffizi and historical monuments return to eat a sandwich. The controversy against this type of tourism is inevitable
