There was no pumpkin throwing melee when it was all over. No one accused anyone of vote rigging


This culinary showdown took place this weekend at the US Embassy in Kabul, where the 'Mericans sought to redeem themselves after a bitter loss last year to the British team.

On presentation of the main dishes, it looked as if Team 'Merica had the edge.
