* A flyer posted at the Capitol Complex…

Um. OK. That’s kind of a difficult invitation to turn down. And “selling” votes? How, uh, ethical of them.

Just kidding, of course.

    It’s tough to decide which will be tougher on the poor gut of a participant: the chili or the executive ethics commission.

  38. - jerry 101 - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 4:49 pm:

    A flyer for the EEC Chili Cook-off in October, 2012. Investigations have shown that this was actually a clever ruse to allow the EEC to place tracking devices inside the bodies of all employees, allowing the EEC to track their movements at all times.

    However, they did not achieve 100% coverage, due to the $5 fee charged to participate. Some employees opted out. It was revealed that the $5 charge was to cover he cost of the devices. EEC did not have enough funds to cover the cost due to budget cuts.


  39. - Come on man! - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 6:30 pm:

    Two things you never want to see made: Politic’s and…Chilli?!?!


  40. - Michelle Flaherty - Monday, Oct 22, 12 @ 8:01 pm:

    Is that an 8-tier chili system?
