Springfield, MO—Local man, Charlie Swangar, is still attempting to leave the 12th Annual Rock’n Ribs BBQ Festival presented by the Rotary Clubs of Springfield. According to reports, Swanger entered the Bass Pro parking lot on Saturday April 16th and has been attempting to navigate his way out of the traffic for several days.
“The parking was amazingly crowded. The Boy Scouts were doing all they could to handle all of the excessive traffic, but I think they began practicing the bowline knot with drivers who were parking their cars,” said one observer who was enjoying delicious and mouthwatering ribs that benefitted 6 local charities.
When approached for comment on foot, Swangar said, “Luckily I stuck some ribs into my pants pockets before I left, oh and a turkey leg in my shirt pocket, so I’ve been slowly eating to quench my hunger over the past 72 hours as I’ve been inching my way out of this parking lot of hell.”
Traffic experts expect Swangar to exit the Bass Pro Shop Outdoor World north parking lot sometime in the next few days. “It was a terrific event and the attendance was, well still is fantastic. Friday was a bit slow but Saturday we attracted a lot of people and apparently have kept their attention for some time now,” said a member of the committee who refused to provide their name, as they would be subject to indescribable humiliation at the next Rotary Club meeting.
