I'm not sure of the quality of wrestlers at a festival with Beard Growing and Skillet Throwing.
 
2008-07-14 11:15:27 AM
Hummm...that seems to be missing the words "girls in bikinis"...

C'mon everybody, this is what Maine has to offer.
Our Fark parties have all of these events and more!

These are Northern Maine chicks, if the Flannel Swim wear is not a turn off the 6 teeth and 7 folds will be.

I never said I was entering THAT arena.

Beard growing is my favorite olympic sport. ESPN 8 "the Ocho" has great coverage of the national matches.

How do you have a beard growing contest at a festival?

Some friends and I did it, over a winter...

/I won
//not the longest, but surely the most mass
 
2008-07-14 02:37:53 PM
Sounds like a scottish festival. Or maybe Irish given the potatoes (SPUDS).

/Ahh Scotland, where the Men are Men, and the sheep are scared.

THIS.

Also, can anyone explain to me why the far northeast is called "Down East?" Down from... Nefoundland?

I'm going to go make some mashed potatoes and watch the second season of ST:TNG.

It refers to sailing ships travelling from New York and such, downwind to the east to Maine.

/I'm stuck in Dixie, and hope to retire to midcoast Maine, so I'm getting a kick...

Same here except for retiring to the midcoast, gulf coast of FL for my retirement, hurricanes are more fun than winters.

Sheeeit, if it's going to be THAT kind of party...
 
2008-07-14 02:56:46 PM
We don't really consider it a festival in Maine if there's no manure pitching.
 
2008-07-14 02:57:16 PM
Ahh! How I miss my homeland. This gives the slogan "What it means to be from Maine" a whole new meaning.

It's pretty standard agricultural fair activities though. I remember my mom and my sister participating in the skillet toss at the Topsham Fair. It's surprisingly harder than you would think.

You'll still make that debut in a lucha libre mask, with me - right?
After all, I bought that new bikini and everything...

Oh, and I live in Northern Maine, so naturally, I'm getting a real kick out of some of these replies...

Some of the most attractive women I've encountered at the University are from northern Maine, so I wouldn't be so sure... though I doubt any of them would be the ones wrestling in mashed potatoes.
 
2008-07-14 03:26:51 PM
I can't imagine that mashed potatoes put up much of a fight.

/Ah, but the bull Finnish Creamer is a different sort of potato, my freng.

yesanded: Deep South...Downeast...is there really much of a difference?

Not quite. Downeast is the cultural, sophisticated part of Maine. Largely populated with ex-east-coast urbanites.

Was it brown gravy or white?

I was going to say basically the same thing, but it sounds like they'll have that pretty well covered already.

either gravy is bad...I suppose brown is worse, unless you happen to be wrestling a sub-saharan playa whose technique involves alot of scratching and cutting.
