I am in beautiful Southern California visiting the judges of the first annual, "I Love Voopee Pies Contest".
I think I need a prize.
There were entrants from all over the world and lots of drool worthy flavors to choose from. This was no easy task for the judges. I did do thorough background checks on each of the judges before hiring them.
Judge number one- 91 year old ex - big wig, (Deputy Inspector on the N.Y.P.D.), WW II Vet, Edgar Cayce advocate, Semi - Pro athlete smarty pants, Emcee, (Stand Up) and my Daddy.
Judge number two- an ex - chorus girl, singer, immigrant, hospital volunteer worker, mystery reader, mystery club president, and ex - doubles player. (I was of course suspect of this applicant's past, but since Mommy is married to an ex cop she met on a raid, I accepted her judge's application.)
Judge number three is a bi - polar pianist who paid me off.
Everything was done fair and square and there were hours of deliberation. Unfortuanately there was a leak and one of the contestants found out who the winner was before the winner was even announced. I found this out on FB. Yes, Heidi, a contestant from Southern California, is quite disgruntled and believes the judges should be institutionalized for not voting for her flavors. Although I agree with Heidi about institutionalizing the judges, it would not be for their supreme judging abilities. Perhaps I should not let my sister Heidi enter my contests any more. I don't know, there was a time when Heidi was the only contestant, so I think I have to let her play.
Anyway, this contest was not fixed!
My judges numbered their ballots vertically and I read aloud each flavor. Next to the number they wrote NG (no good), F (fair), E (excellent). We weened down the applicants and then there was an argument about their favorites. Judge 1 and 2 asked why no one had entered any chardonnay or burgundy flavored voopee pies? (Clear winners with these two judges.)
All in all the contest was a great success. Drumroll please!!!
