This is one of the funniest forwarded around e-mails that I’ve ever seen.
Hopefully this will make someone laugh –
I lost my breath I was laughing so hard

"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".
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 shit, what the hell 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 shit-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 beermaid, was standing
behind me with fresh refills. That 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
longer focus my eyes. I farted and four people behind me needed paramedics.
contestant seemed offended when I told her that her chili had given me brain
Sally saved my tongue from bleeding by pouring beer directly on it from the
I wonder if I’m burning my lips off. It really pisses me off that the other
asked me to stop screaming. Screw those rednecks.
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, and garlic. Superb.
Judge # 3 — My intestines are now a straight pipe
filled with gaseous, sulfuric flames. I shit 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 ass 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
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 – No Report
