Ask Mr. Biggs
Summary: Who is Mr. Biggs? Quite simply, Mr. Biggs is a man with a lot on his mind. An accomplished businessman, community leader, motivational speaker, mentor, bowler, and recreational chef, Mr. Biggs has experienced a lot in his 50 plus years. When he's not co-owning and managing his successful restaurant/nightclub, Whizzbang's!, he's helping a neighbor replace an aging lawnmower's spark plug, or grilling steaks at the Caribou Lodge's annual fundraiser jubilee, or figuring out how to beat his niece and nephew at miniature golf, or simply spending time at home hosing off his driveway. No, Mr. Biggs is no ordinary man. Few people know that Mr. Biggs has developed and patented the world's very first 12-piece stainless steel cutlery set that's completely portable (patent pending). Mr. Biggs has also been credited with being the first American entrepreneur to delve into and revolutionize the once-flourishing world of mail-order sandwiches. A pioneer, an uncle, a risk-taker, an individual, and, above all, a STYLISH GENTLEMAN, Mr. Biggs is a lot of things to a lot of people. And now, through the miracle of mp3 compressed audio technology, he can be all of these things to YOU with The Mr. Biggs Bartered Program! Welcome to the fantastic world of Mr. Biggs!
