Running races in which runners have to gorge on beer or food during the run are all the rage. This strip was inspired by the most awesome beer-mile world record video
, and the ever-growing genre of races in which eating
and drinking specific things are part of the challenge, in addition to running the distance as fast as you can. Crazy is as crazy does, fellow runners. I just came back from Italy where I ate the most salami I've had in years, and often
retired to the hotel feeling as full as Lem, sans a large salami in my mouth. Lem (a.k.a "Barefoot" Lem) has appeared in a few other comics, and drives the Nudis PediBUS for F.U.R.
