The Weekly asked the man who campaigned for this category’s inclusion, “Why?” (Suggest your new categories via email@example.com.) Kevin Jewell, who lists his position at the Weekly as Drone 32B, admitted this category is his love note to life. And this: “It makes readers think.” “Sticks are to [handy eating] what bacon is to wrapping things,” he says. “And you can wrap bacon around things on a stick.” The real thoughtful question comes next: What can’t go on a stick? “Probably pudding,” he says. Apparently he hasn’t had a pudding pop. Hopefully the fair stocks those this year.
