Now, he's here to tell you why you shouldn't have beef with eating meat.
You don't eat no meat? That's ok, he'll make you lamb.

But there will be no top quality Chilean wine – only Coca-Cola to wash down the feast. Doctors have ordered no alcohol, according to Federico Holzhauer, head of the catering company supplying food to the men.
“The miners seem very happy with the food because it tastes like it’s home-baked. They almost feel like they’re at home with our food. That’s the important thing. We’re very proud to be able to do this for them,” Holzhauer told CNN.
