They probably do.

Sometimes it works the other way too. I'd just hopped off a plane in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia after a trip from "The World". I was hungry. Then what do I spot...none other than a Roach Coach. No other places around and who knows how long before I find another place..even the chow hall. As I eat, I wondered how bad this was going to be. An uneventful night followed. I guess I hit the equivalent of a $50 scratch off. Moral of the story; sometime your luck is shit and sometimes it's not.

But....they did have these medium size containers of chili. It smelled good, plenty of beans, and was pretty tasty. About an hour later, as my body was processing this culinary delight, my gut starts rolling like a boulder down a mountain. It is 8 p.m. and I'm still torn up. I've had enough flatulence that if properly harnessed could power a medium to large city for days. Dang it has been rough. Every .mil person here knows about the roach coach, and when you eat food from it, you are taking your life in your own hands. Whew......I'll be glad when all this wears off.....

You never eat the chili in the morning. It's what was leftover from the day before.

Do the roach coach cheeseburgers there have sesame seed buns? Once you break through the plastic encasing them here, they literally look like some fat dude has been sitting on them for 5 hours to keep them warm. And without a generous slopping on of every variety of condiments, they are literally tasteless. At least the chili has taste, but the aftermath is awful.

Always remember the saying on the 1MC on the ship: " The Roach Coach is on the approach". After we got politically correct it was: " The Navy Exchange Mobile Canteen is on pier."

Of course over the years they were not allowed down the pier anymore and you had to go to the head of the pier for your chance at botulism.

Another good one here. This happened a few months back. Of course we have Palmetto bugs here in middle Ga. For those of you here that don't know what they are, they are a huge flying cockroach. Nasty looking mud suckers. Anyway, the roach coach driver opened up the side of the truck, and that roach flew out after her. She screamed, and everyone was like, hmmm..I don't think I need anything off the truck today.

I was on watch at the barracks and doing my rounds when I walked by a palm tree and felt something brush my neck. I thought it was just a palm frond and went on inside. I walk into the head and in the mirror I see this giant cockroach climbing up my chest. I musta jumped five feet in the air and was swatting and hitting at it till I knocked it off. It landed about 6 feet from me and turned around and ran back at me. I stomped it with my boot and it was so big it's guts blew out sideways from under my boot. Disgusting things they are.

Damn man, you're making me miss the Dominic's truck that always parked at the joint base in Norfolk. Now I'm hungry.

Non-mil here but Roach Coaches are a staple around these parts. Each one comes equipped with a musical horn which they blow when they arrive so you know to come outside; one guy with a great sense of humor has a horn that plays "La Cucaracha."

That breakfast burrito is EXACTLY what I had in mind when I thought of that. They were affectionately known as "fat bombs" in our command.
