Silly names plague otherwise cool recipe contest

File this under cool idea, silly name.

The California Fig Advisory Board has launched the "Figlicious Fig Fest Recipe Contest" on Facebook.

Yes, figlicious. No, it's not a real word (at least not according to Webster's).

Here's how it works: hit the "like" button on the advisory board's Facebook page. Once you like it, the page will allow you to post comments on the wall. Post your favorite fig recipe until Aug. 7 and you'll be eligible for a drawing to win fresh and dried figs.

The winner will be announced Aug. 9.

But wait, there's more zany names to be had. The board's Facebook page lists the name of the same contest as the "Fig Fest Figatastic Recipe Contest."

As if one absurd name wasn't enough.
