EXPLANATION OF THE “PITA” CATEGORY:
Every year there are people who are unhappy with the competition categories because they are unable to create entries for them. For example, if an artist’s specialty is haute couture and there are no “fashion” categories, that artist would not be able to enter the competition. Similarly, if all you do is fairies and mermaids, and there are no fantasy categories, you’re out of luck.
Jim Faraone, the convention organizer, after listening to repeated suggestions from the many people whose work didn’t fit into the categories he created, suggested, jokingly, that he should create a miscellaneous category for anyone who wasn’t able to enter the “normal” categories but, rather than call it miscellaneous, he would call it the “pain in the ass” category. P-I-T-A stands for Pain In The Ass.
The people in his Yahoo group got such a kick out of this suggestion that the joke became a reality and the miscellaneous “PITA” category was born. It was intended to be a catch-all category for those entries that did not fit into the other competition categories.
Everyone who entered the categories received an enema kit. The “prize” for the 11.5” category was a large box of PreparationH suppositories.
