LIES I HAVE TOLD: BRUSH WITH GREATNESS #3

by Keef Rutledge on June 20, 2012

In 1982, I entered my lobster bisque in the Maine Culinary Cook-Off. I slaved over every detail, only used the freshest ingredients, and used my grandmother’s award-winning recipe. I was pretty sure I would win, but to further my chances I sabotaged my competitor, Paul Prudhomme. When he wasn’t looking, I poured 12 ounces of my fresh urine into his clam chowder. I held my breath all through the judging and was crushed when I took second place to Martha Stewart’s crawfish gumbo. Paul Prudhomme was tarred and feathered.
