It's getting into the tough, lonesome hours of the Blogathon, so I say, what better way to push the cobwebs from your eyes than by doing one of our Gulf Coast-themed contests!
For those inclined towards cookery, submit your best recipe for soul food, comfort food, food that tastes like home to The Rickey and G-Man Soul Food Cook-Off
If poetry is your thing, we've got two. Submit a comical, nonsensical, dipsical, doksical, hortatory, plumatory, amatory, or otherwise wacky verse to the Eugene Walter Memorial Doggerel Contest.
Or! There's also our Everette Maddox 14th Way of Being Looked at By a Possum Contest, where you write a stanza about a... um... 14th way of being looked at by a possum.
And if you're a music person, there's the Patterson Hood Southern Song Lyrics Contest. Potts says that nowadays all the good southern poets just become musicians. Submit your favorite lyric by a southern artist or band - blues, jazz, southern rock, gospel, country, you name it.
You have until 5am PST, winners will be announced at 5:30 PST.
But be warned. My dad discovered Blogger today, and he is a competitive fella.
