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
    – wife-carrying
    – 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.
