Submitted Nov. 24, 1996 Cliff the Ex-Waiter From Canada
I once gave the Heimlich to a fat old man choking on a steak. He was enormous. It was all I could do to get my arms around him. I actually heard the obstructing bolus of chewed steak hit the back of his front teeth, upon which he methodically resumed chewing. This party tipped me a whole $1.75.
On the way out the man's wife touched my arm and said, "Thank you for squeezing my husband."
