Mustard’s Last Stand

zebra_350Recipe for Disaster, or is it Destiny Stew?

Take: One tiny, cash-strapped, oddball-rich town in North Idaho


  • One struggling screenwriter seeking solace in his hometown
  • One extra-large mustard jar bearing the cremains of a famous actress
  • One ex-car salesman turned canned hunt enthusiast
  • One fake preacher-for-hire/con man on the run
  • One dedicated and discredited eco-activist, dressed in animal skins
  • Four determined pregnant women
  • One crazed pill-popper

Sprinkle with assorted captive African wildlife. Stir thoroughly and let simmer. Slowly mix in one runaway ice cream truck. Watch things boil over in Hancock, Idaho.

Can Ed Mustard turn this chaotic stew into a dish that will win a blue ribbon at Hancock Days?
