  • A great episode with a good title which is a pun on the cliche. This episode is everything it says it is.

    During training with Siegfried and Roy, Larry gets caught in the middle of a hoop, forcing Siegfried and Roy to put Larry on a diet and fitness regime.

    But this puts stress on Larry’s mental and physical capability to restrain himself from eating meat. And Sarmoti’s taunting doesn’t help either. What makes everything worse is that Snack has a new girlfriend called Candy who he wants to eat every time he lays eyes on her, and when Snack catches Larry sniffing her out, he figures out the truth that he wants to eat her.

    Later, when Larry and Candy are left alone momentarily, Candy breaks the news that she’s leaving Snack. When Candy leaves and Snack returns with some wine, Larry can’t bear to tell him the truth that she’s left him. Instead, Larry tells Snack that he ate her because the diet had gotten to him so much. Is this the end of Larry and Snack’s friendship?

    • Title: One Man's Meat Is Another Man's Girlfriend

      This a pun of the expression "one man's tresure is another man's trash."

    • Snack: CAAAAAAAAANDY!!!!!!!!!!

      Snack falling on his knees and calling out Candy's name while being drenched by the waiter's washcloth is like when Stanley called out Stella's name while being out in the rain in A Street Car named Desire.
