Rejoice! It is National Chili Day!

There are two things wrong with this illustration. Answers at the bottom of the post.

According to the Bean Institute Bulletin, February 28 is National Chili Day. Rejoice!

Betty Crocker is hosting a chili cookoff.

I have now posted two things Uncle B cannot stand: Betty Crocker and fake national holidays dreamed up by marketing types to sell products. w00t!

While we’re at it, here is a bunch of chili recipes on Pinterest. No idea how Uncle B feels about Pinterest, but I hate it. It’s like some horrible maze that you get trapped in and can’t get out of. Or steal pictures from.

Two things wrong with the illustration: that’s a megaphone, not a spotlight, you goofy artard. And a real Texan chili never includes beans. So I’ve been told. I don’t really understand how that works, though. Plus you can’t get much more Texan than my mother, and there were beans in her chili. And no chili powder. She hated chili powder because it reminded her of Mexicans. In her defense, a Mexican field hand murdered her grandpa.
