With all due respect to the group, this is slightly off topic but it is about food. Chili! Not the old Texas Chili Judge story but a new one. This is so funny that I just had to share.

Since there are a few off color words I chose to not post it here but rather make a web page out of it so that anyone who think they might be offended doesn't have to open the file.

It ain't funny when it happens to you, at least not until later.

It was Walmart, and I'm all the way back in automotive. I didn't have the gas problem out in the store; I'd have filled my pants. By the time I made it to the restrooms up front, I was taking those short mincing steps you take when you've got the cheeks clinched up tight.

When I finally got there, there was an old guy cleaning the handicap stall where some kids had papered it. I had stepped over his cleaning sign at the entrance, and he said that he would be through in a few minutes. I said I couldn't wait, and hit the other stall. (As a side note for anyone who carries, that's when you start to ask yourself why and what am I going to do with it now?)

Anyway, I got everything sorted out, I took care of business, and it was serious business.

When I finished and stepped out of the stall, the old guy was leaning againt the wall. He had his hankerchief out trying to wipe his eyes and covering his nose at the same time.

I said, "Sorry man," and he said, "That's okay," while he kept wiping his eyes and trying to filter air through his hankerchief.
That is a good one. Here is another...

A friend sent this to me.Chili Cook-Off > > > If you can read this whole story without laughing, then there's no hope for you. I was crying by the end. This is an actual account as relayed to paramedics at a chili cook-off in Texas > > Note: Please take time to read this slowly. If you pay attention to the first two judges, the reaction of the third judge is even better. > For those of you who have lived in Texas , you know how true this is. > They actually have a Chili Cook-off about the time Halloween comes around. It takes up a major portion of a parking lot at the San Antonio City Park .??> > Judge #3 was an inexperienced Chili taster named Frank, who was visiting from Springfield , IL. > > > > Frank: "Recently, I was honored to be selected as a judge at a chili cook-off. The original person called in sick at the last moment and I happened to be standing there at the judge's table, asking for? directions to the Coors Light truck, when the call came in. I was assured by the other two judges (Native Texans) that the chili wouldn't be all that spicy; and, besides, they told me I could have free beer during the tasting, so I accepted and became Judge 3." > > Here are the scorecard notes from the event: > > CHILI # 1 - MIKE'S MANIAC MONSTER CHILI > > Judge # 1 -- A little too heavy on the tomato. Amusing kick. > > Judge # 2 -- Nice, smooth tomato flavor. Very mild. > > Judge # 3 (Frank) -- Holy crap, what the hell is this stuff? You could remove dried paint from your driveway. Took me two beers to put the flames out. I hope that's the worst one. These Texans are crazy. > > > > CHILI # 2 - AUSTIN 'S AFTERBURNER CHILI > > Judge # 1 -- Smoky, with a hint of pork. Slight jalapeno tang. > > Judge # 2 -- Exciting BBQ flavor, needs more peppers to be tak en seriously. > > Judge # 3 -- Keep this out of the reach of children. I'm not sure what I'm supposed to taste besides pain. I had to wave off two people who wanted to give me the Heimlich maneuver. They had to rush in more beer when they saw the look on my face. > > > > CHILI # 3 - FRED'S FAMOUS BURN DOWN THE BARN CHILI > > Judge # 1 -- Excellent firehouse chili. Great kick. > > Judge # 2 -- A bit salty, good use of peppers. > > Judge # 3 -- Call the EPA. I've located a uranium spill. My nose feels like I have been snorting Drano. Everyone knows the routine by now. Get me more beer before I ignite. Barmaid pounded me on the back, now my backbone is in the front part of my chest. I' m getting s***-faced from all of the beer. > > > > CHILI # 4 - BUBBA'S BLACK MAGIC > > Judge # 1 -- Black bean chili with almost no spice. Disappointing. > > Judge # 2 -- Hint of lime in the black beans. Good side dish for fish or other mild foods, not much of a chili. > > Judge # 3 -- I felt something scraping across my tongue, but was unable to taste it. Is it possible to burn out taste buds? Sally, the beer maid, was standing behind me with fresh refills. This 300 lb. woman is starting to look HOT ... just like this nuclear waste I'm eating! Is chili an aphrodisiac? > > > > CHILI # 5 - LISA'S LEGAL LIP REMOVER > > Judge # 1 -- Meaty, strong chili. Cayenne peppers freshly ground, adding considerable kick. Very impressive. > > Judge # 2 -- Chili using shredded beef, could use more tomato. Must admit the cayenne peppers make a strong statement. > > Judge # 3 -- My ears are ringing, sweat is pouring off my forehead and I can no longer focus my eyes. I farted, and fou r people behind me needed paramedics. The contestant seemed offended when I told her that her chili had given me brain damage. Sally saved my tongue from bleeding by pouring beer directly on it from the pitcher. I wonder if I'm burning my lips off. It really ticks me off that the other judges asked me to stop screaming. Screw them. > > > > CHILI # 6 - VERA'S VERY VEGETARIAN VARIETY > > Judge # 1 -- Thin yet bol d vegetarian variety chili. Good b alance of spices and peppers. > > Judge # 2 -- The best yet. Aggressive use of peppers, onions, garlic. Superb. > > Judge # 3 -- My intestines are now a straight pipe filled with gaseous, sulfuric flames. I crapped on myself when I farted, and I'm worried it will eat through the chair. No one seems inclined to stand behind me except Sally. Can't feel my lips anymore. I need to wipe my butt with a snow cone. > > > > CHILI # 7 - SUSAN'S SCREAMING SENSATION CHILI > > Judge # 1 -- A mediocre chili with too much reliance on canned peppers. > > Judge # 2 -- Ho hum, tastes as if the chef literally threw in a can of chili peppers at the last moment. **I should take note that I am worried abo ut judge number 3. He appears to be in a bit of distress as?he is cursing uncontrollably. > > Judge # 3 -- You could put a grenade in my mouth, pull the pin,and I wouldn't feel a thing. I've lost sight in one eye, and the world sounds like it is made of rushing water. My shirt is covered with chili, which slid unnoticed out of my mouth. My pants are full of lava to ma tch my shirt. At least during the autopsy, they'll know what killed me. I've decided to stop breathing. It's too painful. Screw it; I'm not getting any oxygen anyway. If I need air, I'll just suck it in through the 4-inch hole in my stomach. > > > > CHILI # 8 - BIG TOM'S TOENAIL CURLING CHILI > > Judge # 1 -- The perfect ending, this is a nice blend chili. Not too bold but spicy enough to declare its existence. > > Judge # 2 -- This final entry is a good, balanced chili. Neither mild nor hot. Sorry to see that most of it was lost when Judge #3 farted, passed out, fell over and pulled the chili pot down on top of himself. Not sure if he's going to make it. Poor feller, wonder how he'd have reacted to really hot chili? > > Judge # 3 - No Report
