If you’re ever eating with famed comedian Bobby Lee, of both standup and TigerBelly Podcast fame, you’re going to want to finish your entire meal.
That’s because if Lee picks up the check, he declares the right to do whatever he wants with your leftovers. Co-host and girlfriend Khalyla Kuhn outed the former Mad TV star with an anecdote told to comedian Bert Kreischer on a March TigerBelly episode:
“I’ve secretly packed it in a box [. . .] he looked at it, smashed my sandwich. So it’s now all over the place and indedible.” - Khalyla Kuhn
“And the next time you pay for the meal – you can take it home, do whatever you want with it.” - Bobby Lee
POWER MOVE. Not only has Bobby Lee has taken a full ownership stake of your food, allowing him to put everything in a single box for his own pleasure – he takes it one step further by decimating it. Wait, there’s more?
“I leave it on the table, no one can take it,” said Lee.
Translation: when he doesn’t destroy your leftovers he’ll still make you leave the food on the table – completely intact. There is a certain type of person that doesn’t eat leftovers (read: privileged), but this, this is an extreme take that’s hilarious and simultaneously frustrating. Potentially starting a last-minute Venmo war might be your only hope.
