You call those rotten?
Thirteen-year-old Katharine Tuck’s sneakers smell as bad as they look. Now, at least, the Utah seventh-grader can afford some new ones. On Tuesday, she out-ranked six other children to win $2,500 in the 32nd annual National Odor-Eaters Rotten Sneaker Contest, stinking up the joint with a pair of well-worn 1½-year-old Nikes so noxious they had the judges wincing.
“I’m so proud of the little stinker,” said her mother, Paula Tuck. Ah, the foul smell of success.
You only need to have been living in the same hostel wing that I occupied. I am sure there were many that would have given this pair a run for their money. Much stink about nothing, I say!
