Who should I back in this year’s Wurst Challenge?

I’ve got $20 set aside to support this year’s Wurst Challenge, but I’m torn as to which competitor I should back… Should I put my money behind defending champion Jason “Knifebeard SausageHawk” Youngs, reclusive roboticist Cre Fuller, local midwife turned professional sausage eater Kate Stroud, or one of the many others who are presently locked […]

Wurst Challenge II • Ypsilanti • March 29
