Definition of the Day: Shrimporee

Shrimporee \shrim-puh-ree\ (n.): Term describing a festival where almost everything involves shrimp. Named for a very specific festival in Southeast Texas where they wheel out a humongo shrimp made out of papier-mache and use it as an excuse to hold a big carnival with rides and Christians and shit.


“Did you get the shrimp cocktail, Fred? Our shrimporee requires lots of shrimp. And possibly hookers.”

“Goddammit, Denise! You know at Shrimporee they offer nothing but fried shrimp! We’re in Texas! It’s not like in New Orleans where they know how to cook seafood!
