The question we have to ask ourselves is this: How can mankind continue to build bigger, grander snack food stadiums, yet still fail to cure cancer or achieve peace in the Middle East?
Last week we brought you the story of the site Holy Taco, and how they constructed the greatest stadium made of delicious snack foods ever built (above right). But it didn't take long for other sites to break ground on competing snack stadiums, like the Marc And E Memorial Stadium (above left). Notice the impressive use of dark chocolate-and-icing scoreboards, and hard-roll tunnels, one of which features a tiny Larry Fitzgerald emerging to run onto the field.
Another stadium soon followed. Now there are least three, and you can vote for the best one. From Marc's GChat:
So, inspired by a post on Holy Taco last week, I roped in my roommate E and Jordan got our friend David to participate and yesterday we had the first annual Super Bowl Snack Food Stadium Build Off.
Here are the rules:
1) The only non-edible items allowed were a tin for dips (for the field), and tooth picks (for construction purposes).
2) Teams cannot use more than $100 for all of their supplies.
3) 11 players per side had to be on or around the field.
4) Stadiums had to be finished by kick off.
So without further adieu, here are the stadiums. Take a look, and vote for your favorite in the poll on the side bar.
Grand and impressive, to be sure. But to paraphrase Dr. Malcolm in Jurassic Park, "Mankind was so preoccupied with whether they could build the greatest snack food stadium ever, that they didn't stop to consider if they should."
