The Whingers have been vegging out again.
Yes this weekend it was that time of year – the Lambeth Country Show 2009 – when the Whingers whipped out their trusty potato peelers to prove that creative inspiration is not only confined to the stages of (one or two) West End theatres.
So with their clammy, shaking hands fingering the zeitgeist and flexing their kitchen tools they came up with this little work of art as an homage to Michael Jackson. And as one of three creations honouring the recently deceased legend their chances of sweeping the board again were as slim as their creative inspiration.
Sadly, as usual, the Whingers hadn’t left themselves nearly enough time to do it properly so the idea of a full length Michael Jackson presented in a gold casket had to be ditched.
Although their “King Edward of Pop” didn’t even warrant a top three placing (presumably because the three Jackos cancelled each other out: and “veg sculpting” has strangely become a much more popular category than last year) they took pleasure in the knowledge that the winning entry had used wool in its construction, which is animal matter, not vegetable matter and is therefore cheating in their humble opinions.
Not that the Whingers are bitter but they have harvested enough sour grapes this weekend to produce something really spectacular next year.
Anyway, here are some of this year’s entries.
This was the winner (in the background, obviously).
