I just got the Official Guide to the 8th Annual Rockabilly Chili Contest from WMSE 91.7 FM in my email box and it's a real dilly, kids. Pictured at left is this year's Rockabilly Chili mascot Francis, a truly astounding yet absolutely foul tasting ocean gastropod of the Nudibranch variety. Eew!
Beyond the obvious HIlarity of the name--haha! Nudi means naked!--there is no logical reason for this bottom-dwelling creature's presence at, near or around a pot of chili. The implication, of course, is clear: Miltown's premiere DJs have finally gone completely off the perilous deep end, bless their nutty little noodles.
So what is it that has turned our Frontier Radio heroes mad? Endless fundraising! And what can you do to help bring them back from the brink of insanity? Go to the 8th Annual Rockabilly Chili Contest this Sunday!
For just a $6 admission price and $1 per chili sample you can spare us this kind of nonsensical mascoting for the foreseeable future and help WMSE continue on with its musical broadcasting mission. Better yet, bring four or more non-perishable items for Hunger Task Force and get up to two chili servings. Whoot!
WMSE's 8th Annual Rockabilly Chili Contest will be held Sunday, March 7, 2010 from 11AM-4PM at the MSOE Kern Center, 1245 N Broadway in Milwaukee.Do it for the DJs, do it for Francis, do it for us all.
