Giant Dishwashing Competition

Large-scale competitive washing-up
  (+3, -1)
(+3, -1)
  [vote for,
against]

The apparatus is a white china plate, set at a 30-degree angle, 6 meters in diameter. The implement is a yellow sponge with green scrubby material on one side. Also on the field of play, just in front of the plate is a round tub, 1 meter deep and 1 meter across, filled with a mixture consisting of 9 parts water to 1 part dish-washing liquid.

Before each competitor’s turn, the plate is coated with a dried-on food. The exact food type is to be chosen by the judges based on the local cuisine.

The competitors go one at a time. When the clock starts the athlete grabs the sponge, dips it in the soapy water and goes to work on the plate. The clock stops when the judges determine that the plate is clean, and the time is recorded. The winner is the person with the lowest time.

       9pi square metres of China plate?   

       Yeesh, I hope this competition doesn't come with a "You break it, you buy it!" clause...

       Halfbake ideas to wash dishes faster. Combine Junkyard Wars and this idea here.

       Extra points should be awarded for being dry afterwards. What the points are for? No one knows...

       //this could be the Food Channels hot new show//   

       That’s a good observation [Space-Pope], for all the cooking they do on TV there’s surprisingly little washing up.

       Man I would LOSE this battle...

       How about having the audience supply the dirty dishes? I'd show up if there were a chance some nice athlete would clean them for me.
