    Here you go, Prince Roger…an oldie, but a goodie…

    The Texas Chili Contest
    Frank, an American visiting Texas, was invited to be one of the judges at a chili cook-off. He was assured by the other two judges that the chili wouldn’t be all that spicy — and besides — they told him he could have free beer during the tasting. Here are the scorecards from the event:

    Chili # 1: Mike’s Maniac Mobster Monster Chili

    Judge one:  A little too heavy on tomato. Amusing kick.
    Judge two:  Nice, smooth tomato flavor Very mild.
    Frank:  Holy smokes, what is this stuff? You could remove dried paint from your driveway with it. Took me two beers to put the flames out. Hope that’s the worst one. These people are crazy.

    Chili # 2: Arthur’s Afterburner Chili

    Judge one: Smoky (barbecue?) with a hint of pork. Slight Jalapeno tang.
    Judge two: Exciting BBQ flavor, needs more peppers to be taken seriously.
    Frank: Keep this out of reach of children! I’m not sure what I am supposed to taste besides pain. I had to wave off two people who wanted to give me the Heimlich maneuver. Shoved my way to the front of the beer line. The barmaid looks like a professional wrestler after a bad night. She was so
    irritated over my gagging sounds that the snake tattoo under her eye started to twitch. She has arms like Popeye and a face like Winston Churchill. I will NOT pick a fight with her.

    Chili # 3: Fred’s Famous Burn Down the Barn Chili

    Judge one:  Excellent firehouse chili! Great kick. Needs more beans.
    Judge two: A beanless chili, a bit salty, good use of red peppers.
    Frank:  This has got to be a joke. Call the EPA, I’ve located a uranium
    spill. My nose feels like I have been sneezing Drano. Everyone knows the
    routine by now and got out of my way so I could make it to the beer wagon.
    Barmaid pounded me on the back; now my backbone is in the front part of my
    chest. She said her friends call her “Sally.” Probably behind her back they
    call her “Forklift.”

    Chili # 4: Bubba’s Black Magic

    Judge one:  Black bean chili with almost no spice. Disappointing.
    Judge two: Hint of lime in the black beans. Good side dish for fish or other mild foods, not much of a chili.
    Frank:  I felt something scraping across my tongue but was unable to taste it. Sally was standing behind me with fresh refills so I wouldn’t have to dash over to see her. When she winked at me her snake sort of coiled and uncoiled … it’s kind of cute.

    Chili # 5: Linda’s Legal Lip Remover

    Judge one:  Meaty, strong chili. Cayenne peppers freshly ground adding
    considerable kick. Very impressive.
    Judge two:Chili using shredded beef; could use more tomato. Must admit the
    cayenne peppers make a strong statement.
    Frank:  My ears are ringing and I can no longer focus my eyes. I belched and four people in front of me needed paramedics. The contestant seemed hurt when I told her that her chili had given me brain damage. Sally saved my tongue by pouring beer directly on it from a pitcher. Sort of irritates me
    that one of the other judges asked me to stop screaming.

    Chili # 6: Vera’s Very Vegetarian Variety

    Judge one:  Thin yet bouncy. Good balance of spice and peppers.
    Judge two:The best yet. Aggressive use of peppers, onions, and garlic. Superb.
    Frank:  My intestines are now a straight pipe filled with gaseous flames. No
    one wants to stand behind me except Sally. I asked if she wants to go
    dancing later.

    Chili # 7: Susan’s Screaming Sensation Chili

    Judge one:   A mediocre chili with too much reliance on canned peppers.
    Judge two:Ho Hum, tastes as if the chef threw in canned chili peppers at the last moment.
    Frank:  You could put a hand grenade in my mouth and pull the pin and I wouldn’t feel it. I’ve lost the sight in one eye and the world sounds like it is made of rushing water. My clothes are covered with chili which slid unnoticed out of my mouth at some point. Good, at the autopsy they’ll know
    what killed me. Go Sally, save yourself before it’s too late. Tell our children I’m sorry I was not there to conceive them. I’ve decided to stop breathing, it’s too painful and I’m not getting any oxygen anyway. If I need air I’ll just let it in through the hole in my stomach. Call the X-Files people and tell them I’ve found a super nova on my tongue.


    That was me!!! :wacko:


    hahahaha…it was?!?!?


    Love good spicy chili.


    I like chili that is not so hot that it melts the tongue and burns on the way down thru and out!  :yes:


    Specially the out part!


    Lol sounds like some of the chillie I have made,well my wife says so anyhow.


    Not related to the chili topic, but the ‘out’ subtopic…my grandpa, part-time okra farmer, always said boiled okra is the only thing you can eat, that when you finish, stand up, and turn around…BAM!  There it is on your chair.


    I’ve tried okra twice, it was just as bad as the first time. Rates with lima beans, why am I eating pig feed?


    lol, well have you had FRIED okra?!?!?  Breaded?   omg…good stuff!  NOT slimy!


    I’ll wait until I get to the south and give it one more try.
    I have theory for food, you take something that tastes Good and make it better. Something that tastes NASTY, and disguising it is just wrong.
