A Toronto butcher shop manager who won a $14.5-million lottery prize last week is making good on his promise to share his wealth. Jose Lima, known as "Joe the butcher" to the hundreds of customers he has served for 22 years, gave away free four-kilogram bags of chicken legs to his patrons on Thursday. The loyal customers began lining up well before the O Nosso Talho butcher shop opened at 9:30 a.m. By noon, the lineup stretched half a block around the store, which is located on Bloor Street just east of Dufferin Street. Some 800 residents received their free chicken by lunchtime and another 450 were still in line. Lima ordered almost 27,000 kilograms of chicken legs, and placed an extra order to make sure none of his customers would be walking away empty handed. The price tag was $30,000.
