I tried out for a talent competition once. One of the judges told me that I just couldn't cut the mustard. I looked at him oddly and said, "Well, I wasn't trying to cut mustard, I was demonstrating my ability to yodel 'The Farmer and the Dell' backwards while juggling on a unicycle. Besides, cutting mustard would be a rather silly thing to do for a talent competition, anyway." I didn't win. Some people just have no taste for talent. Stupid Simon Cowell.
