Jim “Colonel Mustard” Cherewick needs your helps as he represents all the musicians of the world in epic Ypsilanti sausage fest

I’d been informed by the governing body that oversees the Wurst Challenge that, as a judge, I should try my best to give the impression of impartiality. And, until this evening, I think I’ve done a pretty good job of it. A few hours ago, though, I received a desperate call from my friend Jim “Colonel Mustard” Cherewick, who, unable to resist the temptation of 20 feet of free meat, just recently signed on to be a competitor. Apparently it had started to eat at him that only about $100 had been donated to FLY Children’s Art Center in his name, whereas well over $1,000 had been raised by another competitor, a man known as The Big Gulp. “He doesn’t even play in a band,” Jim mumbled sadly, “and I play in about half a dozen.” I told him that everything would work out, and that his parents, siblings and bandmates were probably just waiting until the very last minute before opening their billfolds and launching him into first place. “Just in case, though,” I told him, “I’ll make a graphic for you that you can share with everyone, so that they know you’re in the competition, and trying to raise money for FLY.”

And here’s what I came up with…

If you like it, please consider making a contribution to Jim “Colonel Mustard” Cherewick.


[note: The above should not be interpreted as an endorsement on my part. I love all of our competitors equally. I just feel a little more protective of Jim, as he’s like a little brother to me.]

    Try as you might, you will not defeat Team Smoot as they roll to domination.

    Wrong again. Big Gulp has played in many bands and was very popular at Cross Street Station so his Ypsi musical tries go way back. Including stints in Voodoo Chilli, Bailey, and The Hairy Reasoners. He is currently in the Ypsi rock band Piss Play. I’ll put his resume up against colonel mustard’s any day.

    I love it when new rivalries form, and I will be sure to seat Colonel Mustard and The Big Gulp near one another come game time.
