Subject: RE throwed rolls

Lambert's in Sikeston, Missouri, home of throwed rolls. It's one of those Interstate highway

culture items, like Walnut Bowls and Stuckey's.

I don't think Interstate 10 runs through Missouri. I do know that Lambert's has billboards all over

the continental United States.

Also, "throwed rolls" is usually pronounced "thowed roes" by the folks I know from that part of

southeast Missouri, just north of the bootheel and an hour or so from the Mississippi River.
