The return of the spurtle

I don’t know how it’s come to this, but for the third year in a row I am blogging about the winner of the “highly-coveted Golden Spurtle.” But then, I’m informed that Anna Batchelor, who long-time readers will no doubt recall having won the specialty porridge category two years ago, has 1,400 followers on Twitter, so clearly I’ve been wasting my time covering politics. I can report that last year’s winner celebrated with a tattoo – of what, we are not informed, but presumably a bowl of porridge – and will now be getting a second one to celebrate his win in the specialty category.

Today is both World Porridge Day and Indigenous People’s Day (Berkeley only). Celebrate accordingly.
