If you know anything about Franklin BBQ, you know about its tortuous line—so epic that it even has its own Twitter feed.

Today, Manny Fernandez filed a New York Times story tracking a day in the life of Austin’s most committed brisket enthusiasts, checking in with the international lineup of BBQ hunters who start queuing as early as 7:43am for the 11am opening.

One of the best tidbits in the piece, however, is when GM Benjamin Jacob reveals just how serious the barbecue’s joint’s no-cutting policy is.

In fact, the only person who has ever been allowed to jump to the front is President Obama, back in 2014.

No word on whether Mr. “Hurry Up With My Damn Croissants” actually waited—@FranklinBBQline rumored that he was there, but sadly no Yeezus x Meat Gods photos ever surfaced.
