Give Me Gory Gouda: Submit to the Scary Dairy Contest!


You probably remember my talking about Culture Magazine’s Annual Scary Dairy Contest—write a 500-word-or-less scary story about cheese. I’ve participated a couple of years now, resulting in “The Things that Eat You” in 2010 and “Slow Grill” in 2011.

This year, myself and last year’s winners Dave Goudsward and Amanda will be judges. So, get out your pens and get gory with gouda, creepy with cream cheese or sadistic with Swiss, then post it (and get further details) here:

Hurry! A winner will be chosen November 1, so you’ve got just a couple of weeks to enter.

Oh, and while you’re at it, check out this seriously creepy ice cream ad:
