Anyone up for baseball, or slice dicing & ricing? 🎁 Giveaway [Ended]


Thanks! I definitely will :grinning:


Haha, that’s a great thought! :smiley:

Sorry for complicating the formulas running our world. Maybe there is some kind of maintenance guy that takes all the unnecessary parts out at night? Hope he didn’t get too mad and added a luck debuff specifically for me!


Nice giveaway. Not entering. But thanks for the giveaway!:+1:t2:


Entering with the NY Yankees and this:

Dammit, now I want shrimp fried rice.

@Punkster Just want to confirm, you are not entering, right?

Did I miss anyone? If so, please let me know asap.

Any last minute entries?


Over here! Yes, one :point_up: more right here! Time for me to take a “swing” :cricket_bat_and_ball: at this giveaway, I guess :wink: !

As much as I have grown up “around” watching (and attempting to play) :baseball: American baseball :baseball: , my “favorite” baseball team has got to be the Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks, purely because of their :star_struck: adorable :star_struck: mascots! When I visited Fukushima-cho and the surrounding Fukuoka Prefecture in Japan a few years ago, I saw a flyer posted around several cities advertising their latest game. Curious as to how Japanese baseball teams play (and how the overall atmosphere at their games was), I bought a ticket; lol and behold, the first thing that grabbed my attention when the players entered the field were their MASCOTS! A male one (whose name I can’t remember) and Honey the female Hawk! Gosh, if only I could find the picture! Needless to say, their costumes’ sheer cuteness captivated my attention for much of the whole game. The team also played very well, mind you, and won by a slight margin of home runs if I recall. Good times … good times :blush: .

Ah, and if my pun and little story did not give it away already , I would like to enter for Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings .

Thank you , @DanosaurJr , for the giveaway, and thank you to all of the other baseball fans, sports fans, e-sports fans (looks at @harith :cow: :eyes: ) , and foodies who have participated and/or contributed to this thread for all of their stories and good laughs :joy: :+1: !

Man, I should try and find some image of those Hawks …


Ooh, I almost forgot!

Here is one of my favorite rice dishes (although it is NOT exactly well-cooked like the other examples above):

UNI nigiri :sushi: !

So I will be ordering Slice :hocho: , Dice :game_die: , & Rice :rice: as well !


Wow, what’s your deal with your blatant bigotry towards maggots? Maggots can be rice if you are poor and/or drunk?
Not all of us are rich enough to afford “Real Rice,” You snob. Am I actually meant to feel ashamed now, was that your goal, to shame me? Too bad.

Oh and before you get all smug in your rice eating ways, have you ever considered this? You know where rice is grown, how it is picked from paddy fields etc. don’t you? Well, all those people working in the paddy fields all day, knee deep in water… They are not going to go to the side of the field to use the bathroom, now are they?

Non-delusional answer

Thanks for the giveaway, mate, I wasn’t entering, I should have made that more clear. I thought the bowl of maggots would mean automatic disqualification but I appreciate you asking all the same.
No Maggots were harmed in the making of this total shite.

Good day to you!



I wish I could spend a day in your mind, Punkster.

And thanks for kind of ruining rice for me!




don’t worry, you can always return to meats :wink:


What is your favourite icecream?

You are an evil gnome!

I hereby sentence you to eat three packages of these veggie bacon strips in order to redeem yourself.


Damn those piglets are indeed adorable. And that was actually pretty funny :laughing: :cry:


i tried looking, couldn’t find any veggie bacon here, (which i thought was odd):thinking:, much less “that” one…
(all i found were "make X fakon yourself recipes)
-must have been doing something wrong. Any danes on the forum have an idea where to acquire commercial veggie bacon?, (-that doesn’t require me to set up a lab and frankenstein it myself)

in the meantime while i continue my search, have another

(i guess the question is: “would that be strawberry flavoured bacon, -or bacon flavoured strawberry?”:thinking:)


You’re killing me with these pigs! I kinda want one now :heart_eyes:

I’ve seen some of the Frankenstein lab creations you mentioned. Bacon made out of rice paper and carrots :astonished: Sadly, I don’t believe Morning Star products are available in Europe (I can sense your disappointment). I know there are some other meatless “bacon” products in the UK, but I’m not sure about Denmark.

I have this friend who occasionally sends me pictures of the most mouth-watering bacon - just to bust my balls. I usually respond by sending the most horrid looking fake meat substitutes I can find. Tbh, I generally tend to avoid commercially available vegan meat products (although there are a few that are surprisingly decent).

Well, it had to eventually happen.

Anyone know about Scalzi’s Law(similar to Godwin’s Law)?
"It goes as such:

Any conversation on the internet will eventually include bacon in some way. And then be forwarded immediately to John Scalzi."

I had to add it…

Scalzi’s Canonical Bacon Page

He’s one of my fav Sci Fi authors…and he taped bacon to his cat.


Lol… that’s great!
