World Champion Squirrel Cook-Off

How can you NOT think Northwest Arkansas is the most cosmopolitan place in the U.S.?

They host the World Champion Squirrel Cook-Off, after all.

Yes, it is a real thing. Margot and I checked it out last weekend.

That's a Bobcat and a Fox squirrel.

This guy was one of the M.C.s at the event. Love the 'stache.

Here is a link to the Travel Channel's Bizarre Foods visit from last year.

Bizarre Foods - Squirrel Cook-off

The weather was nicer this year than last.

We arrived late and all the squirrel was gone so we didn't get to taste any. Each team prepared a different dish. I wanted to try the squirrel-on-a-shingle.

What would a Squirrel Cook-Off be without a gun give-away for the raffle. Yep, that's a .22 caliber rifle. They said they were giving them away early because the winners needed to do some paperwork.

Here is some more taxidermy on display.

No idea what the extensions on the front of the tractor are all about.

Anybody know what kind of flower this is?

The Bentonville courthouse square is very nice. The whole town is pretty nice. I guess being the corporate headquarters of the world's largest retailer has its privileges.

That's a statue of James H. Berry. He was a Lieutenant in the Confederate army and latter governor of Arkansas and a U.S. Senator.
