It was no Jerky World

July 6, 2010


You might recall the worst part of my trip to Texas a few months ago. Today’s trip to Omaha was much better.

There were some anxious moments. At 5:52 someone shouted, “Jerky Factory.” Around 5:53 someone postulated that the Jerky Factory probably closed at 6:00. At 5:55 we arrived at the designated meeting McDonalds to give Brad’s Aunt Bev the purse that she left at Brent’s on the 4th of July. One minute was spent explaining the situation to Aunt Bev. Her response?

“Lets roll.”

The time was just in the nick of.

We arrived safely, but the selection was disappointing. In fact, if I were going to write up how not do a Jerky store, this would have been a nearly perfect example. But that’s not the point. The jerky that they had was delicious, and now some of it belongs to me.

    Maybe that clerk girl was upset because she thought she worked at the Jerk Factory.

    I agree -- it was a shockingly small selection of jerky. They did have chicken jerky, though, and that is disgusting.


  2. Brad Said on:

    I was hoping they had some caffeinated jerky. No luck.


  3. Peggy Said on:

    Blech. Unless they had any donut jerky?

    All this talk about Jerky is making me hungry.

    Hey Lloyd -- Arron just tried to post this link but it’s not showing up; I think your blog thinks he’s a spambot.

    We just found this article thanks to my favorite news site (yay Fark!) that you might find funny. We loved it! 🙂

    Any buffalo wing jerky?
    By the way Lloyd, I’m writing this on an Ipad in the hotel in SLC with a Squatter’s beer in my other hand. jealous?


    • Lloyd Said on:

      I think they had 6 types of jerky, and I’m including what they called “turkey jerky” which normal people don’t consider jerky at all, but rather “very dry white meat.”

      Jealous of the beer, not the overly large iPhone.
