The Golden Spurtle

Porridge. Lots of Porridge. Not the (allegedly) classic BBC TV comedy, but the stuff you make from oats and that's fed generations of Scots. And now you too can attempt to win the Golden Spurtle and be crowned the World Porridge Making Champion. Some light relief for a Monday..

They'll need a blonde chick for a judge.

Ready Brek, central heating for kids!

Not to be confused with Carlsberg Special Brew, which is, of course, central heating for tramps.

Why do I always have to be the one to make the entirely irrelevant references to Genesis P-Orridge, huh?

Golden Spurtle would work much better as a porn award.

"They'll need a blonde chick for a judge."

Naturally, however, I think the only chick they're likely to get is this one..

Porridge is disgusting. Not the TV show, that was fine. The breakfast. Yuck.

I love porridge. The local supermarket practically gives away its own brand of quick oats.

Cook it with an extra 1/2 cup of water, let cool, and add honey. Delicious.

dr. wu, is it really very refined to pronounce "its" name that way? "It" does not, after all, resemble sticky oats.

Seems like once you win four times you are translated to the Great Oatfield in the Sky.

Porridge is really quite good - simply mash in a kipper, add a Mars Bar and deep fry.
