Now here's an eating contest where I would rule. I miss carbs so much, the donuts would run away from me in fear when I show up to compete.

I've lived here too many years to not have known about this donut eating contest. So light, so airy, so delicious (said no one about me ever) I can't even stay focused thinking of how much fun this would be. While I'm busy trying to figure out how to justify this massive carb-load, here are the tasty details you need to participate in this donut eating contest which is part of Oregon, Illinois' Autumn On Parade October 6-7.
