Woman buys 10,000 Mars bars, drives off in limo

Wednesday, May 5, 2004 Posted: 1:24 PM EDT (1724 GMT)

LONDON, England (Reuters) -- A woman with an apparently insatiable sweet tooth stunned staff at a British shop when she bought more than 10,000 chocolate bars and had them loaded into her chauffeur-driven limousine.

The woman asked staff at a north London Woolworths branch for every single Mars bar in stock -- 10,656 of them packed in 220 boxes -- and paid for them in cash with 50 pound notes, a Woolworths spokesman said on Wednesday.

The total bill was 2,131 pounds ($3,828).

"It was very, very strange but nobody thought to ask her why she wanted so many," the spokesman said.

"It would usually take us a month to shift that number of chocolate bars," he added. "Perhaps she has a sweet tooth."

Sorry - you have to be a) British and b) very old, to get the joke!

Remember when David Letterman did his show out of California for a week? I think it was in the NBC days. He drove into a drive through and had his convertible filled with tacos.
