GIANT CHEETO UPDATE

Those of you who have been following this blog since its inception need to increase your medication dosage. But that is not our point here. Our point here is that those of you who have been following this blog since its inception no doubt remember that this blog was all over the story of the World's Largest Cheeto, and how it came to find a permanent home in Algona, Iowa.

We have just received word from Mr. Bryce Wilson, the man who brought the Cheeto to Algona: He reminds us that "this Saturday (the 13th) is the one year anniversay of the unveiling of the World's Largest Cheeto to the World. We're having a celebration here in Algona, IA at the bar where Carl (the Cheeto) resides."

Mr. Wilson does not name the actual bar, but how many can there be? So if you're planning to be in Algona this weekend, you really, seriously need to increase that dosage.

UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE From Bryce Wilson, in the comments: "I didn't realize I forgot to mention where the Cheeto resides. It's at Sister Sarah's on Highway 18. I look forward to seeing you at the party this weekend. I'll buy a beer for anyone who mentions this blog. Unless you're from Algona. Then you can buy your own beer."

Cool! I'm the first poster!

That is one UGLY lookin' Cheeto. But truly the story is inspiring to us all.

It's also proof that a small town will do ANYTHING for a tourist draw.

Thank you. That is all.

...And the cheeto ate mother's toes.

Dave, my $700 worth of sex toys are all your fault. I read a Weird News piece about a PassionParties consultant getting kicked out of her church because she was selling vibrators, and I thought "Heck, I can sell vibrators!". So I signed up with PassionParties and am now stuck with $700 worth of things like a 9 inch long purple penis, a rubber tube that has lips and a tongue at one end, and three flavors of "head gel" and I live in CANADA!!!!(Apparently, this stuff sells well in the Bible Belt, but up here everyone's gonads are still frozen this time of the year). So If you know any Canadians who want to buy Passion Pudding, Sex card games, or a thing that looks like a penis with a rabbit sitting on it, tell them to call me (905)709-0561 or email passionpartiescanada@yahoo.com. I'll be busy hiding this stuff from my kids. Maybe if I put it in a Laundry detergent box, they won't go near it.

It's stories like these that make me proud to be from Iowa.

um...back to the Cheeto...anyone notice the cheeto trivia along the side? 15 million pounds of cheese per year to make cheetos? I wasn't aware there was any actual cheese in them!

And the Giant Cheeto shall be honored with a plaque given to it by the World's Largest Orange-Stained Fingers ...

As the person who brought the giant Cheeto to prominence--I found it on eBay and posted the link to fark.com, whose mischievous readers were the ones responsible for driving up the bidding into the millions of dollars--I demand credit when Dave receives his second Pulitzer for his coverage of this story.

Hmm...such a Herculean Cheeto raises the scientific question: Just how large a Cheeto can we build? Frito-Lay or whomever makes this fine food should get right on that.

I didn't realize I forgot to mention where the Cheeto resides. It's at Sister Sarah's on Highway 18. I look forward to seeing you at the party this weekend. I'll buy a beer for anyone who mentions this blog. Unless you're from Algona. Then you can buy your own beer.

By the way, we'll be crowning a new Cheeto Princess. If anyone would like to enter, you could win hundreds of dollars in prizes from the local spa and tanning places.

And I thought my Spring Break was going to be an uneventful 7 day binge drinking/sleeping till 2/watching Daytime TV event. How wrong I was, I'm getting a car load of people together now, and It's off to Iowa we go. Hopefully I'll get someone who knows where Iowa is. I'll have to find a geography major. Do they even have those anymore? I mean, it's not like people need to discover new continents anymore or anything.

First, let it be known that all impersonators will be stoned to death, taped in leather suitcases, flown to Canada, and eaten by Canadian Canadians.

Second, I am sorry to say that I must miss this historic event, due largely to the fact that Iowa is several million miles from the nearest In-N-Out, or any other location I eat at three times a day. But I'll definitely attend next time if it's held someplace nearby, such as my garage.

Aah the Cheeto is back. I was wondering where it had gone to in that long stretch of time. Now I can rest assured that it hasn't been eaten.

Scott-o, pick me up! I'm on your way. I want to be cheeto princess!

Hey! I've been reading since the blog's inception and I don't have any medication.

Waitaminute... that didn't sound as good as it did in my head...

I want to know why this blog wasn't mentioned in the CNN story linked to from that story? I mean talk about stirring up hysteria on the World Wide Web...

Not trying to spoil anybodies glory of what they once thought was the worlds biggest cheeto, but my friend opened a delicious bag o cheetos today at lunch. To our suprise he unveiled the NEW world record for a crunchy (not a gross gobb of cheese) but and actual crunchy cheeto, that has measured in at over 2 3/4" long with 1" of girth. For some amazing pics of this cheesy wonder email me. This wipes out the old record.

for record breaking cheeto pics... bobmarley_420@hotmail.com
