Cute as a dumpling

I keep hoping a dead relative will speak to me from beyond the grave and tell me, oh, I don't know, where a large pot of money is hidden or what secret there is to life or what it's really like on the other side. If I ever do get contacted, it will probably be something like this, though:

WHITING - A businessman who said a dead relative told him in a dream to cook the world's largest pierogi believes he and a friend did just that Saturday at Pierogi Fest.

Tim King said his uncle sent him on a mission to create a monster dumpling filled with potatoes and cream cheese when he appeared in a dream three years ago.

"I am half-Polish and have been around pierogi all my life. And, believe it or not, I had a dream about my Uncle Emil, who is deceased," King said. "We were eating pierogi together and he told me to cook the world's largest pierogi."

You people would help me eat the world's largest bologna sandwich, right?
