Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

I wouldn't say this is anything new. They have been having bathtub races for years.


Giant pumpkin boat races in Wisconsin. ;-D


Farra's first-place finish earned him and his 110-pound wife Tess her weight in beer

110 pounds of beer, how much is that? :-D


110 pounds = 1,760 ounces = 146.66666666 bottles of beer. Sounds like a nice weekend. ;-D


So he got like a keg...

Wife carrying contests aren't really that new. I believe it's an annual tradition up in Finland.

And 247 Jalapenos? Can you say Preparation H? :-b

I didn't really mean now, there have been wacky races, contests, and competitions for centuries if not more. It just seems that you could find a competition for just about anything. I mean, have contests to see who can launch a pumpkin the farthest.

Ha, that reminds me of this festival in England where they throw cheese down a hill, while there are folks who chase down that roll of cheese down the steep decline of the hill.

Yeah, something like that. Just a big roll of cheese (let's say 25 pounds).

Notice I didn't say kilos, Cu, which should prove to you I'm not British. :-b :-D
