Most places call 'em "Sloppy Joes" but we ain't never seen da sense in dat. Dem burgers ain't all sloppy, an' we ain't all named "Joe". So are Moms stole da name of a food we figger't wouldn't never come ta Manitowoc. It was eider "Hot Tamale" or "Chateaubriand du Larousse Gastronomique".
Since it shoun't take longer t'say a food out loud den ta eat it out loud, da choice was clear.
Texas got dare Chili Cook-Offs, don'cha know. It'd be a good money-makin' ideal for some local restaurant to set dat kinda ting, a "Manitowoc Tamale Fry-out" up at one'a da parks or da fairgrounds, maybe. 'Cept ya need good security in case one Mom bad-mout's anudder Mom'z cookin'. Dat could get ugly quick, an' Momz 'round here don't usually kiss n' make up da way Momz onna Internetz do.
An' ya prob'ly might not want 'em to. I'm just sayin'...
