Good thing he wasn't trying to lug a standard-sized Maine wife around...would've snapped his spine like a dry twig.

Damn, I was born for this sport.

Although being bounced around and staring at a man's ass while the blood pools in my skull isn't the most appealing thing in the world.

At first, I was expecting to read the winners would get approx 500lbs of cash.... And I wondered if it would be 500lbs in pennies.

I'm Too lazy to look up how much money is 500lbs in pennies.... But I'm thinking it would probably be about 7 grand or so...

Eh, so 500lbs in pennies is about $905.

This is why I'm not working at a carnival, guessing people's weight.

TFA said the winner was awarded $530 for first place. I wonder how they calculate the check size if it's "5x the wife's weight in cash".

/paper money is cash
//doesn't weigh much either

Badly written, but I think they mean they get $5 per pound that the wife weighs. She weighed 106lbs, so 106 lbs * 5 $/lb = $530.
