I think it would make an interesting photo-finish if one of the outhouses crashed and sh:t flew everywhere.
2002-10-04 03:24:16 PM  
I'll bet they leave skid marks.
2002-10-04 03:24:52 PM  
What happens when some uninformed yokel goes in to take a dump two minutes before the race starts?
2002-10-04 03:25:56 PM  
That's why is so quiet today.
2002-10-04 03:27:37 PM  
Gentlemen, start your toilets
2002-10-04 03:31:01 PM  
Guess the shiatt is really going to be flying that day!

(off topic)

Has anyone else noticed how many fewer articles there are nowadays on Fark? Perhaps there are a ton at night, but the number during the day has fallen dramatically.

Is this simply a nudge for us to all move over to Total Fark? Is total fark currently filled with millions more threads? I don't mind a subtle push in that direction if that's what it'll take to restore fark to its previous glory, but I don't want to make the switch if total fark is also crappy right now.

What?! No corn-shucking contests or frog races?! What kind of hicks are these?
2002-10-04 03:32:16 PM  
Sweet! I think we should have a Fark sponsered porta-potty and enter it!
2002-10-04 03:32:56 PM  
Oh, there'll be corn...

Locally sponsored teams of six people per outhouse will race down Exchange Street.

In my hometown we have Beanfest every year in October. Basically a bean cookoff followed by an outhouse race.

Where else to show off my shiny new TotalFark(tm) badge than this thread?

Small towns are so stupid.
2002-10-04 03:37:37 PM  
shouldn't the wine tasting be before the race and not after?

it would be a lot more convienient that way...and perhaps more entertaining. more messy though... :)
2002-10-04 03:37:42 PM  
They also have a pea-shelling contest.


Now THAT'S entertainment!
2002-10-04 03:37:45 PM  

I betcha the race will be won by the French team and their "Flying Bidet" entry.

2002-10-04 03:44:28 PM  
This would be Greenville, South Carolina?

TOTALFARK is teh suck. Do not join, as it is for loosers, and loosers moms, and only a suxx0ry looser would join TOTALFARK, and I heard theres even LESS articles than on normal fark, and didnt they raise the price anyway to 20 dollars a weeek?

[selfishly hoards all the sweet, sweet Totalfark for self]

Thanks Ackbar, I mean Ionozacuzo... :-)
2002-10-04 04:13:50 PM  
Actually, it's $50 week, and there's NO BOOBIES AT ALL.

Note: Grammer was intentionally mippselled.

JABOWAH has let it be known.

This year is the 20th annual OUTHOUSE RACES in downtown MOUNTAIN VIEW ARKANSAS, in conjunction with BEANFEST '02

Free pinto beans and cornbread (served at noon Saturday the 28th) for all before the races so everyone can have a gas. Races start at 2PM, about the time when the beans kick in.


COME ONE ...COME ALL to beautiful STONE COUNTY Arkansas.

Last weekend in October.... 26, 27, 28.

Come on fellow farkers come to the Ozarks for a good down home time. Plenty of pickin and singin on the square.

All BEANFEST activities are FREE.

Plenty of free camping available in the nearby Ozark National Forest.
