It is weird I live in a time where this is necessary.  I joined fark on 9/11/01, and then I switched jobs and lost my email and had to rejoin.  Every day I think I have seen everything and this is weird, but having to read this, someone making sure they aren't confused with either the top chef of the south or a Larp, I sleep well knowing more weird is in the mail.

Dear gods, I hope I never get internet confused with North West Positronics.

Look at a certain, much smaller, fair from a few years ago and you'll find my name sweeping Baking and taking 6 blues in Jams, Jellies and Preserves.  Plus a couple Judge's Choices in embroidery of different types.  It was kind of a thing.

Someone in comments mentioned the heartbreak of working on a cookie recipe all year and then having Linda Skeens take 1st, 2nd and 3rd on you.  Yeah, that was me the next year.  I TOTALLY got dunked on by an octogenarian.

She's not fooling anyone.  "Linda Skeens" is Granny Weatherwax

Wasn't she in a bluegrass band with three of her siblings called The Four Skeens?
 
2022-06-25 4:11:52 AM  
Other possibility is her and that Robin lady were the only two entrants for a lot of those...

As a small county fair winning photographer I will share my secrets for only $49.99 today only. Since I like you folks on Fark I will share for free.

johnryan51: Best overall jelly, grape? No way in hell.



Jelly sucks, so a well made grape could totally win it. It's not like her jelly beat preserves or jam.
Looks like she won jam as well with a peach raspberry combo.

Jelly is made with fruit juice, but no actual fruit.
Jam is made with mashed/crushed/pureed fruit
Preserves is made with whole pieces of fruit
Marmalade is exclusively made with citrus fruit juice, and is basically jam with bits of both the fruit and its peel.

I hope she turns out to be a wonderful old lady with a passion for baking and not some weird shut in loaded full of political hot takes.

When she's not canning and pickling she's pouring molotov cocktails and knitting maga scarves for the next insurrection.

I've heard of them. Their fans call themselves Skeenheads.

I think people should give some credit to Robin Moore for putting up some solid competition to Linda's absolute dominance.
 
2022-06-25 4:49:52 AM  
Even the pig race?

The rodeo?

How long did a cow actually stay on her back?

She's why obesity is such a problem in Kentucky Virginia.

I am an award winning game designer for that very reason.

On the other hand, I wouldn't say she went that route. Taking 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in cookies feels like proof of that.
 
2022-06-25 6:22:19 AM  
She did so well, bless her heart!

Maybe if you served fresh cookies instead of ones that were a year old you would have done better?

Today we'll find out that the judge was Amy Coney Skeens.

Sure Linda. Go ahead. Enjoy that sweet taste of pure victory while it's yours... but know this... as you celebrate Robin Moore will be training
 
2022-06-25 7:38:33 AM  
Robin Moore & Donita Davis better sleep with one eye open. Linda may go all Tonya Harding on them.

I'm trying to but I still can't figure out where the juice comes from.  I'd rather welch on a bet with that Smuckers guy than admit defeat.

Lettuce squash the anti-abortion people like tomatoes. Then we may relish the fruits of victory. It's only fair.

Skeens is hill mafia.  Own all the shine in the Virginia Kentucky District and half the shine in the Kentucky Virginia District.

Mess with a Sheen and you get fed to the pigs, Gene.

Sheens don't waste money on marketing or fancy threats.  It's the hill way.
