When Ron Swanson says "bring me all the bacon and eggs you have", how much does he want you to bring?

Bring me all the bacon and eggs you have.

You are watching: All the bacon and eggs you have

Wait, wait. I worry what you just heard was "bring me a lot of bacon and eggs". What I said was "Bring me all the bacon and eggs you have".

- This scene in Parks and Recreation.

I know that it's a joke on a show, but if it wasn't a show and you were the server, how much should you bring? Surely he can't mean that you should actually go thaw out a thousand pounds of bacon and eggs and serve it all life, and that he'll pay several thousand dollars for the lot? But it seems that for any realistic guess he could rightfully complain that you aren't listening to him correctly because you're underestimating him.

Is there any better option than just bringing him 'a lot' of bacon and eggs?

I'd have the kitchen keep cooking a serving at a time until he stops eating. As long as they don't keep him waiting with the next helping, all is well. And we'd only be out one serving if we manage to outcook him.

I never liked that joke. It was too "out there," imo. Telling a diner"I want all the eggs and bacon you have" would result in them cooking like 5,000 eggs and 100 pounds of bacon, which obviously no one person could eat in a sitting. So I thought the joke was kind of dumb.

But I think that's the point of the joke. It's a ridiculous request that couldn't practically work. Ron making such a request is supposed to be humorous. (I think it's hilarious)

If this actually happened, you'd likely have to go back and take an inventory of how much bacon and eggs you have, calculate how much it would all cost, and ask the customer how he would like to have it served to him. They'd probably want him to pay up front, too, if they're cooking all of it in large batches.
