new contest: gross and grosser
The two year anniversary celebration continues with yet another contest. If this one happens to gross you out at any point, just remember - It's all Lair's idea.
Gross and Grosser: the rules
Head to your fridge and dig around a bit. You just know there is something in there that is unidentifiable. Maybe it's jiggly, maybe it's moldy, maybe it smells like a dirty nursing home. Perhaps it's even one of those two week old leftovers that will go straight into the garbage, container and all.
I've thrown out my share of perfectly good tupperware ruined by the stench of rotted food. Don't be ashamed.
Now, take a picture of the item. Yea, you have to open the lid for this, I'm afraid. Actually, some of the best rotted, putrid items are those that don't even go in containers. Have you seen what a lime looks like after a month or so?
Now, write a little story about your gross food item. Tell us what it is, if you know, when you made it and why it's still sitting in your fridge soaking up all the good aroma from the box of baking soda. If you don't know, make something up. I know at least one of you has eye of newt or head of Jimmy Hoffa sitting in your crisper drawer.
You can either send the picture or post it on your own blog and put the link in the comments here.
For those without handy access to cameras and/or scanners, do your best. Describe, draw - I'll even accept a Microsoft paint rendition of your moldy yogurt. Be creative.
Contest will run until tomorrow evening.
Get over to your fridge and start sniffing!
Laurence and I should not be allowed to collaborate on things. Nothing good will ever come from it.
update: I forgot to mention, though it may be obvious. The GROSSEST food type thing wins.
