Cop wins doughnut eating contest

I've been meaning to write about my camping trip last weekend but I can't do it without posting photos (the photos tell the story...literally). Unfortunately, Blogger has been "dealing" with some "glitches" in the photo uploading portion of their software for the past week or so. It's really frustrating and it appears as though I'm not alone. Oh well, guess I'll just have to wait it out. Anyhow, on to the megamunching...

Came across this story about a Maine police officer that won, of all things, a doughnut eating competition! It's the second year in a row he's won the contest. To be fair, the contest was only open to police officers, perhaps because no one else could beat them. Turns out, contests that feed off the cop-eating-doughnuts stereotype have been done before. Here's one sponsored by Dunkin Donuts called the World Cop Donut Eating Championship.

(Wait, is it "doughnuts" or "donuts"? Let's see...Google lists 4.4 million listings for "doughnut" and 8.2 million for "donut." Okay, guess that clears that one up. Sort of.)

Anyhow, wouldn't it'd be funnier if it were a bacon eating contest? Ahh, two oh-so-deliciously-fattening breakfast foods and two great stereotypes. Insulting cops never tasted so good!

You can post pictures directly from flickr and sidestep the blogger picture function. If you got to your flickr pic, click on "all sizes", and at the bottom you'll see some html to copy and paste in your blogger post. You can mess with the height and width to get it where you want. Voila! Hope this helps.
