For those of you just tuning in, our latest mystery object is something I discovered during my stay on the Hawaiian island of Kauai:
I'd like to give a special shout-out to Dana Strotheide's for the following comment:
Charlie Sheen's penis? Looks like something that too much cocaine and hookers would do to a man.
Or a seed-pod of some sort... but I like Sheen's Peen better. :)
There's really no topping that one, so I picked up an extra prize just for Dana.
And let's just pretend for a moment that it is, in fact, Charlie Sheen's penis. Some of you may be delighted to see what I did with it:
For the record, Charlie Sheen's penis wasn't very tasty in an omelet. Also for the record, it wasn't Charlie Sheen's penis, but a Bitter Melon. I used this recipe to prepare it for breakfast one morning. Though I generally enjoy trying new foods when I'm traveling, this was not one of my favorites.
Moving on, I requested special assistance from my mom, my dad, and several members of the animal kingdom here on Kauai to select a contest winner. Here's a short video that shows how the selection process unfolded:
Congratulations to Abby Mumford for winning the second Kauai prize package. Abby and Dana, shoot me an email with your snail mail addresses and I'll get your gifts in the mail right away.
And mahalo (that's Hawaiian for thank you) to all of you for playing!
I'll be back home and back to my regular blogging schedule within a couple days. Thanks for your patience, and for making this blog a million times funnier than I could ever make it on my own. You guys rock!
