That's a lot of Pumpkin Scoopings... *shudder* Well, good luck to them!
I hope they remember to pace themselves. This is an endurance sport.
She picked it up, then put it back down. Is she... She's going for it!
Some might say this isn't ladylike behaviour, but... well, actually that's true.
Look at them go! This is rather gross, isn't it? Ha ha!
It looks like some of the audience have cheered themselves hoarse.
Wow, is he really going to eat all of that? He is! Amazing!
What a mess! There's food flying everywhere!
Can someone get this fellow a napkin? What a monster!
Let me know if you see a Peanut Butter Spider. I dropped one in the crowd earlier.
What a voice! Sounds like our audience is really rooting for you, contestants!
Oh, good one! Remember, you have to eat the whole thing!
Egad, what monstrous behaviour from our contestants. Don't you just love it?
Come on, you can cheer louder than that! I bet they can't even hear you over the chewing!
Please, keep the booing civil. This is all in fun.
All this cheering is really encouraging the contestants! Keep it up!
We've got some monstrous appetites here today.
Mm, Deep Fried Ghosts remind me of my childhood.
I must say, there are too many pumpkins at that table. Disgusting things.
Oh, this is so exciting! Some of these dishes are new to me, too!
I've never heard such a din! All this cheering will make me deaf!
Booing is a dangerous sport. You're lucky they didn't hear that last bit.
This would be miserable on a sunny day. Thank goodness this is Neovia!
If I were you, I'd take a breather. The contestants aren't going anywhere.
You've had enough excitement for one day, I reckon.
Looks like we're continuing this tomorrow, folks!
I... I can't believe they're still eating.
I hope the chefs are cooking up tasty treats for tomorrow!
Haven't you lost your voice yet? Better take care of it or you won't be able to cheer at all.
Well, I think we'd all better take a nice break now. Come back tomorrow!
The Eating Contest is ending tomorrow, don't forget!
Oh boy, tomorrow's the last day. Does my tie look all right?
Oh ho! Those Angry Marshmallows bite back!
What messy eaters! But what can you expect?
The Screamed Corn is so loud! Cheer louder!
Get your cheering in - tomorrow we declare a winner.
Good thing this is nearly over. Our contestants can't take much more!
I don't believe it! We have A WINNER! Congratulations to Scarlet for being the clear winner of our first annual Spooky Food Eating Contest! *sniff* We've made history...
Well, I hardly thought it was worth mentioning at the time dear Kari! You see there are always a few rabble-rousers causing trouble and spreading falsehoods, so I never believed a lick of it myself. Tell you the truth, if that Kougra from out of town had never been seen desecrating the grave danger crypt, I doubt this whole affair would have amounted to much other than a few pranks and break-ins.
Why yes, this vengeful spirit hullabaloo started when that vandalous Kougra was caught defacing the crypt. Though I heard the townspeople really did put the fear of Fyora into that ruffian as they chased him off!
Why yes Indeed! There has been a luminous liquid all over that area since the stranger was spotted. And no matter how many times we scrub it away, the glowing gunk always reappears overnight. While some of the locals claim it's ectoplasm, I have no doubt it's simply another bout of adolescent roguery.
Ahem, well it seems you all have this mystery... well in hand... So, I will take my leave. I have no doubt you shall uncover the truth!
You don't say! Was it some hooligans as I suspected? Or perhaps it truly was a ghost after all?
Really, all this chaos was caused by a few little critters?
Our vandal! You have a lot of nerve showing your face around here after desecrating our crypt sir!
Undiscovered, eh? I take it these petpets are quite rare then.
Not only are they exceedingly rare but also exceedingly cute? How splendid! These little critters will certainly draw flocks of tourists and petpet lovers alike to our foggy little town. I'll have to tell the Spooky Petpets shopkeeper to be on the lookout for any more of these precious little critters... Oh and spread the word that we need not fear the wrath of a specter!
