Hi.  My name is Oggie Cooder and I can charve.  I can chew and carve any shape I want from a piece of cheese.  This is also called charving.  I can charve all 50 states. Here’s Texas.  Watch.  Most of the kids in school think I’m a little bit weird but when the “Hidden Talents” TV show comes to town looking for unusual talent, I suddenly became very popular after I win a guest appearance on the TV show.  The girl who lives across the street from me is my manager, but my friends think that she is up to no good.  I won’t tell you what happens.  You’ll have to read my story to find out if I become the charving champion.  (New Hampshire Great Stone Face nominee, 2009-2010)
