When you think "New York-style delicatessen" you think fashion design, right? It's a classic pairing, like peanut butter and jelly, Lucy and Ricky, or strawberries and champagne. If combining your love of fashion design with your love of deli meat is a lifelong dream, you have no choice but to enter Kenny & Ziggy's New York Delicatessen Restaurant's "Whaddya Sayin'" T-shirt contest.
In addition to bragging rights, the winner of the contest will receive a $50 gift certificate and have their hilarious witticism sold on Kenny & Ziggy T-shirts. The winner gets a shirt for themselves, too -- natch. If you think you can do better than "Don't You Wish Your Pastrami Was Hot Like Me?" and "My Matzo Balls Are Bigger Than Yours," your day in the sun has arrived.
Want to enter? Details after the jump.
To enter the Kenny & Ziggy "Whaddya Sayin'" T-shirt contest, submit your suggestion on the Kenny & Ziggy Facebook page. There aren't too many rules -- each entry has to refer to a food item on the deli's menu, and can't be too off-color. On Sunday, March 17, 2012 -- yep, St. Patrick's Day -- Ziggy Gruber and a gang of roving judges will pick the winner.
