Moving it from Westport to Bridgeport?

To keep a sense of proportion, will they also be renaming it to WelfareSoupFest?

Ah. I see you've gotten "rhetorical question" down pat.

Chowdafest is a fundraiser for the Connecticut Food Bank - feeding the hungry whether they live in Bridgeport or Westport. The event was moved to literally a bigger arena to accommodate the larger crowds. We hope to raise enough to fund 100,000 meals. I know I don't think this comment is in good taste and I don't think the award winning restaurants and all the volunteers think so either.

How about those hungry people in Stratford, like myself? Tippy and I usually go around to the back of the stores looking for food in the dumpsters. I got into a wrestling match one night with what I thought was raccoon only to find out it was Lynn. I wish she would not target my dumpsters.

I must say LynneB is fat and hairy and a good scrapper. Poor Tippy did not have a chance. She is a champ at dumpster diving.

Jim, you have landed in a very different forum- this is not like a forum in a newspaper. The comments get much worse. This is basically a cyber insane asylum.

Y'know, I'd bet you'd be more facile at recognizing and appreciating a joke if you yanked that stick out of your ass.
