It was the annual "Chilli Contest". Everyone is welcome to bring in chilli, and everyone in the department gets to eat it and pick the "favorite". There's almost 30 different chillies here today. ;-)
Oh, and the company provides hot dogs and pop to go with it, as well as chips and cracker jacks, rounding out the lunch.
Gotta love free food. That, and chilli #17, which is an awesome venison chilli. ;-)
