Road trip attraction: Don't throw your rolls at me!

I passed this Lambert’s Café in Foley, Alabama, today. If you wonder why its website is throwedrolls.com, it’s because a member of the wait staff walks around with a basket of dinner rolls and will throw one at you if you want a roll with your meal. I ate at the original in Sikeston., Mo., a few years ago and found no charm in having rolls thrown at me. I'm apparently in the minority, however, since Lambert's baked -- and presumably threw -- 2.2 million rolls last year. As far as I know, the roll-throwing Lamberts are no relation. My branch of the Lambert family has a dominant clumsiness gene. We can't catch.
