CLAYTON, MO — An exhausted local couple has entered their fifteenth round of voting, the results of which will determine where they go for dinner. Kevin Ryan, 32, has reportedly been vying for a meal at Galactic Fried Chicken, and his wife Nancy, 34, has voted for a different restaurant every round, as she is female and never knows what she wants. The couple has been unable to eat since Friday.
"I think I'll have clinched it this time," said Ryan. "I've offered her a spa basket, flowers, and even a role on the Agriculture Committee. It's a deal she can't refuse."
"I can't wait to go to Galactic Fried Chicken! It's out of this world!" he added.
According to sources, Nancy has admitted that she was "up for anything" but adamantly refused Galactic Fried Chicken because one time she went there and the waitress looked at her weird and it was awkward. However, sources believe she may soon buckle under the pressure of starving to death.
"I'm so hungry," she cried, just before the vote.
At publishing time, Galactic Fried Chicken had won enough votes for dinner but is closed Mondays and Tuesdays. The couple was forced into a brief recess to deliberate before another round of voting would begin.
