Of all things. A prize for making goo. I shall alert my mother promptly.

I do not want to know anything about the prize for the best haggis. Or for that matter, haggis.

The Golden Spurtle WBAGNFA sleazy nudie bar.

I thought this was the Golden Spurtle ... ??

Scotland has culinary experts?

Key quotes:

"to compete for the coverted Golden Spurtle Award... Freudian slip???

"In her younger days she worked as a chalet girl"... is that a euphemism?

The Golden Spurtle, sponsored by Columba Cream...

Now if I'd never had Columba Cream, which is a honey-and-single-malt version of Irish Cream, I might find that funny.

No, I do find that funny, but now have to break into the bottle of Columba I brought back from the Hebrides with me...

Spur´tle (spûr´t'l)
v. t. 1. To spurt or shoot in a scattering manner.

Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary, published 1913 by C. & G. Merriam Co.

If I'm reading this right...the porridge they mean is good old oatmeal. I recently got a can of the real, steel cut oatmeal.

Wonderful stuff. Nothing like the rolled flaked oatmeal that is so common. And easy to make in a slow cooker too...
