Highlights from the Redneck Olympics in Maine (Video)
The Redneck Olympics took place this weekend in Hebron, Maine, drawing a crowd of hundreds. The rules were simple: beer and facial hair mandatory, tank tops and tattoos optional, and proper grammar forbidden.
According to the Sun Journal, some of the events included:
- - tug-of-war
– the beer trot
– bobbing for pigs’ feet
– the mud flop
– toilet-seat horseshoes
– greased watermelon haul
– pie-eating contest
Here’s a highlight video from the weekend’s events:
The way the games began is a great tale. “A man in a pig costume carrying a tiki torch lighted the Redneck Olympic Torch, a pile of wood in a barrel.” Simply brilliant. Hey, at least they have a sense of humor about things.
Still, nothing will ever touch what the Eskimos do when it comes to cultural olympics. That stuff is insane.
