Roadkill Cook-Off

I didn't believe it when I read about it, but West Virginia has a "Roadkill Cook-Off". This is actually the 15th annual event of this type. If you are in Pocahontas County, WV on September 30, give it a try. First prize is $600.

My favorite rule is the first one.

"1. All entries must have, as their main ingredient, any animal commonly found dead on the side of the road - groundhog, 'possum, deer, rabbit, squirrel, snake, etc. Pigs, cows, chickens, horses, and goats also in that category also. However, it need not actually come off the side of the road (and most of the judges would prefer that it didn't)."

FYI, in 1998 WV approved a roadkill law that allows drivers to keep practically anything that is roadkill.


I wonder what kind of job opportunities there are in WV.
