Mack 'Tubby' Farkle

Mack 'Tubby' Farkle was found at the local McDonalds celebrating his first place prize in Piggly Wiggly's essay contest. His winning essay was titled "Pork's for Dinner". Piggly Wiggly sponsored the contest as part of the grand opening of its new store in the Confederacy. The first place prize was a ten dollar McDonald's gift certificate. "I won and that's all there is to it," Tubby said to this reporter between bites of his supper. He pulled out a copy of his essay from his back pocket. "There's the winning paper. Print it in your paper. Let everyone see what real writing looks like," he said shoving it across the table. "By the way are you going to eat those fries?" I gave him my fries and the rest of my half eaten Big Mac.
