Keep Houston Press Free

Two Eating Our Words Commenters Receive Major Award

You guys are the best, really. You give us a reason to get up in the morning with comments to our writers like "Eat a dick you talentless hack."

But seriously, in many ways the comments really make the blog, so we've decided to start honoring our favorites of the day, highlighting the wittiest, most informative, or for whatever arbitrary reason, most gold star-worthy.

The winners of today's major award impressed us not so much with their witty repartee as their sheer...well...impressiveness.

Yumyum, you took Kevin Shalin's recipe for spice cake made in a crock pot with tomato soup, and you made spice cake in a crock pot with tomato soup:

Say no more, Yumyum.

The next major award goes to an anonymous commenter. Anonymous, we'd like to crash some holiday parties with you. Why? Because you can obviously hold your alcohol:

"I didn't think the blue margaritas at el patio were all that strong."

Say what? We're a bit more fra-gi-le than you, but we salute you all the same.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
