    If you can read this whole story without tears of laughter running down your cheeks, then there is no hope for you!

    *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 the rodeo comes to town. It takes up a major portion of the parking lot at the Astrodome. The notes are from an
    inexperienced Chili taster named Frank, who was visiting Texas from the East Coast:

    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 judges table asking for directions to the Budweiser 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."

    Here are the scorecards from the event:

    Chili # 1 Mike's Maniac Monster Chili

    Judge #1 - A little to heavy on the tomato. Amusing kick.

    Judge #2 - Nice, smooth tomato flavor. Very mild.

    Judge #3 - (Frank) Holy Cow!, what is this stuff? You could use it to 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 Arthur's Afterburner Chili

    Judge #1 - Smokey, with a hint of pork. Slight jalapeno tang.

    Judge #2 - Exciting BBQ flavor, needs more peppers to be taken seriously.

    Judge #3 - Keep this out of 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 t! he Barn Chili

    Judge #1 - Excellent firehouse chili. Great kick . Needs more beans.

    Judge #2 - A bean less chili, 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 Draino. 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 plastered from all 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 barmaid, was standing behind me with fresh refills. She is starting to look HOT! Just like this nuclear waste I'm eating! Is chili an aphrodisiac?
    Chili # 5 Linda'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. I can no longer focus my eyes. I farted and four 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. Forget those
    Chili # 6 Vera's Vegetarian Variety

    Judge #1 - Thin yet bold vegetarian variety chili. Good balance of spices and peppers.

    Judge #2 - The best yet. Aggressive use of peppers, onions, and garlic. Superb.

    Judge #3 - My intestines are now a straight pipe filled with gaseous, sulphuric flames. I farted and I'm worried it will eat through the chair. No one seems inclined to stand behind me except Sally. She must be kinkier than I thought. Can't feel my lips anymore. I need to wipe my backside 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 about Judge #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 in chili, which slid unnoticed out of my mouth. My pants are full of lava. At least during the autopsy, they'll! know what killed me. I've decided to stop breathing, it's too painful. What the heck, 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 Tommy's Toe-Nail Curling Chili

    Judge #1 - The perfect ending, this is a nice blend chili. Not too bold but spicy enough to declare it's existence.

    Judge #2 - This final entry is a good, balance chili. Neither mild nor hot. Sorry to see that most of it was lost when Judge #3 passed out, fell over and pulled the chili pot down on top of himself. Not sure if he's going to make it. Poor dude, wonder how he'd have reacted to really hot chili.

    Good stuff! My best friend when I was growing up was from Texas so I would always try to outdo him on spices, I never won. ;f
