Humble pie in Wigan

I would have to agree with Jon Slattery's comments on this article in the Guardian this morning.

I was trying desperately to stifle a laugh on the bus as I read it.

How can you make a pie eating contest sound like cold war negotiations?

Try Martin Wainwright's interpretation

"The world pie-eating championships proved once again to be a controversy-strewn battleground today as the sole woman competitor stormed out and officials banned gravy after rumours of doping with cough mixture."
