Default How about an ugly junk competition?

Well. Nobody could really beat BierMuncher's classic keg abortion. There is no point in even trying to compete with class like that.

However. I am particularly proud of the mill setup that I tacked together this morning. It, to me, is the ultimate anti-sculpture. A symphony of discord. It is a poke in the eye to conventional wisdom, yet a magnificent acknowledgement to the gods of crap.

I reckon I could get a full 55 pound bag of Marris Otter in that sucker if I was stupid enough to try! Oh yes, I'm pretty tall, so it's no problem to reach the top funnel.

PS I thought the pink duct tape was a nice touch. The mill looks kinda tiny though, with all that crap around it!

The rusty texaco drum as a "table" of sorts really sets it off!

That's one folding chair and balloon away from a FAA violation.

Garage sale.

Oh, and that top funnel is a printing plate from work. It is the front page of the local newspaper, so you actually have something to read while milling

I was wondering about that, I thought it looked like newpaper..

Is that part of it an "homage" to Shecky?

That's so ugly, it brought a tear to my eye.

Way to go.

I recognized it right off. Gnome actually gave me a brewing idea.

No.... BUT (And this is true) My homage to shecky would be the sports page with a ton of holes in it that I use to put over the mash in sparging
