limit of 250 sandwiches at Arby’s

Arby’s has a new special where you can get 5 regular roast beef sandwiches for $5.  They’ve done such things before.  But this time, there’s a catch — there is a limit of 250.  That’s not a typo.  Here’s how the ad looks:

Arby's 5-for-5 deal, limit 250

Why is there a limit of 250 sandwiches?  Do they have a recurring problem of people ordering more than 250 sandwiches at a time?  I don’t get it…

Since they have that limit on there, I reckon if you wanted more you’d have to go through the drive-thru again, perhaps having the driver and passenger change seats.  But I don’t recommend that, because having 250+ roast beef sandwiches in your car might cause it to permanently smell like roast beef.  Can you imagine how full your vehicle would be if you put 250 sandwiches in there?  That would take up a lot of space!

And of course you can’t eat from Arby’s without also having their infamous curly fries!  You need to have those in proportion with your sandwiches, because they go great together.  So then you’d have somewhere near 250 packages of curly fries.  That many fries in one spot might cause the smell to waft a few blocks.  Then everyone within that radius would be craving Arby’s, and the store would be overrun with business.  Perhaps that’s their plan.  It makes me want to go there…

I’d like to see someone order 250 sandwiches, to see how the workers there respond, and to see how full the customer’s vehicle would be.  So if anyone out there does any “research” into that, let me know, and send a picture of 250 sandwiches…
