"Kraut Queen Contestants Needed"

From Racine County Eye:

"What is a Kraut Fest without a Kraut Queen? The 2016 event is in very real danger of not having a queen to crown unless interested candidates come forward in the next couple of weeks.

"Organizers say they’ve only received two applications for princesses but not a single application for queen.

"'It’s not a beauty contest and no eating of Kraut required!' Joint Parks Director Jim Svoboda told Racine County Eye.

"The Kraut Queen and Kraut Princess are long-held, beloved traditions associated with Kraut Fest, scheduled from June 16 – 19, 2016, at the Caledonia and Mount Pleasant Memorial Park.

"Application deadline has been extended until June 1. Click here for the princess application and here for the queen application."

What about a Kraut King and Kraut Prince?  This is discrimination unless they let men apply to be Kraut Queen.  I know a few queens myself.  One lives just down the hall from me.  He's as funny as Charles Nelson Reilly.

When I was young I worked on Helding's Kraut Farm - I remember picking the young plants and having to stuff them in a bushel basket tight enough so the Farmer could pick the basket up by the plants.

Working on a farm is some of the hardest work there is.

Stop attacking me!
