I was reminded today of a Christmas Toy Run by bikers back in the 1990’s that I used to ride in. There would be a procession through the city and a Bar B Q after with a lot of toys collected for children who might not have any other gifts. I even wrote an article about our local event for New Mexico Magazine. The article was, “These Santas Wear Black Leather”.
One year I will never forget had contests for participants. These were family gatherings so I was very curious about the “Big Hunk” contest for the men. A large group of assorted ages and sizes of men gathered on the stage, as unsure of the details as the rest of us were.
Then Big Hunk candy bars were handed out, one per contestant. Now, these are large bars of very stiff, sticky nougat with a few nuts inside. The winner would be the first to finish his Big Hunk candy bar. Get ready, set, GO – it began and by the end, several teeth had been lost. It still makes me laugh when I think about it 🙂
