View Full Version : Grand Prize For 12 Week Pool Tournament

10-01-2002, 07:14 AM
I passed a country/western dance place in Okla yesterday and read a sign by the road glorifying a 12 week pool tournament. On the sign it stated, "Final grand prize, a Brinkman smoker." I owned one of these one time, and I'm sure there are more expensive ones besides the one I had, but the point is, "Isn't this a hoaky prize for a single weekend event, much less TWELVE weeks?" I just found it odd...sid

It depends on what part of Oklahoma you were in. In some Oklahoma counties, Brinkman Smokers are given as a wedding dowery. A quick review of some court records reveal some of the greatest divorce battles in Oklahoma history hinged on who got custody of the Brinkman.

I saw a licence plate frame in Oklahoma that read: "The only thing hotter than my porno videos is my Brinkman Smoker".

I wouldn't be so quick to state "I owned one of these one time" as simply getting rid of a Brinkman Smoker (they are usually passed onto other family members) could be construed as a jump over to communism.

In Oklahoma, they can repo your truck, foreclose on your house, put your kids in protective custody and impound your dog if you are suspected of abusing the "right" to own a Brinkman Smoker.

I'm just watching out for you buddy. If you awaken to find a pile of seasoned mesquite, arranged to form the likeness of a 250 pound hog, burning (or smoking) in your front yard, you'll know you've raised the ire of that notorious "Brinkman Owners" group, the KKK ("Kan Kook in a Kettle)
