It Could Happen To Anyone...Right!

- I served a 14 ounce prime rib to a gentleman and his wife. The gentleman almost immediately grabbed the side cup full of horseradish sauce and started eating it straight. After about seven quick spoonfuls into his mouth, his eyes started to bug out. He grabbed his throat and his glass of water. He quickly swallowed the water down.
"Sir," I asked him. "Why did you eat that horseradish sauce like that?"
"Horseradish sauce?" he said sounding surprised. "I thought that was coleslaw!"
(One is a form of cabbage and is green, the other is a lumpy browish sauce--you figure it out.)
