AYCE Buffet Patrons

Yesterday a cow-orker and I went to a local Chinese buffet for lunch (a really good one, BTW, that has the usual buffet stuff and some unusual things like sesame crusted bean paste dumplings and lychee fruit - it's the Royal Chinese Buffet in Embassy Commons next to the Books-A-Million across from Gulfview Square Mall, if you're in the area).

Anyhoo, in addition to the usual people one sees at an all-you-can-eat joint (the normal ones, the really very obese ones, the old ones), there was a couple at a table across the aisle from ours who... get ready for this... didn't have any teeth.

Okay, maybe one or two teeth, but they were gumming their food and their jaws and mouths... well, it looked like a documentary of Deepest Appalachia.
