WHAT THE FUCK IS A FASTNACHT?
I'm back. I promise I'm going to get to my Wing Bowl post...sooner or later. Today is Fastnacht Day, in case you didn't know. Fastnachts are basically heavy, plain doughnuts. The day is sort of a Pennsylvania Dutch tradition and it serves as a way to use up all the lard and sugar and other tempting foods before giving them all up for Lent.
Anyhow, we had about five extra boxes of fastnachts laying around the office today, so we put together an impromptu fastnacht eating contest in the conference room at 5 o'clock. Three fastnachts washed down with a Yuengling light lager (the light stuff was all we had leftover from our Super Bowl party). I won. Beau came in second, followed by Billy. Jeremy ate one fastnacht and called it quits. He's kind of a pussy.
It was my first contest using beer. Not too bad except for the burps.
Jeremy plowing into his first fastnacht. He would quit after one.
Billy left in a hurry after the contest to "take care of business."
