    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 he11 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 taken 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 sh*t-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 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. Screw them.


    CHILI # 6 - VERA'S VERY 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, 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 that

    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 about Judge #

    3. He appears to be 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 match 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 - I want my Mama

    There are three or four versions of this story and I still laugh like an idiot everytime I read them. It's just plain brilliant writing that truly does stand the test of time.

    The first time I read the uncensored version where Judge #3 refers to having to "wipe his *** with a snow cone", I laughed so hard I think I peed a little. :D:D

    I, also, read the uncensored version. I find it very funny, especially since I can't tolerate any hot foods. My two sons could eat fire on a stick and I sent the uncensored copy to them a while ago. My oldest son replied back "Judge #3 sounds like a wussy crybaby". ROFL!!

    It's a complicated process to become a chili tester. No, just walking up and being offered.

    Not for Wussies.....

    Down in Houma, La. The Krewe o Mardigras held thier annual chili cookoff to help defray the cost for the float and parade expenses. The pot of chili that didn't win and no one knows who made it and put the judges in a speechless situation. Seems the chili was so hot they couldn't speak and only fan thier mouths. Once EMT's gave them gator aid and icecream they finished the taste test.....:eek::D Next year there will be a booby prize for the least liked chili.........:)
