And now it is time for the annual Tractor Pull entry. Go ahead.. ..look through my archives and youíll see a tractor pull entry every August. Itís not as bad since I moved but I still work in the town where it is held.

What exactly is a tractor pull?

I have no idea.

I know itís loud.

I know it attracts over 60,000 people to this quiet town of 18,000. Women wear tube tops and show their tits on a regular basis; men in mullets flaunt beer bellies. And in order for you to fully understand the horror that IS the tractor pull.. ..hereís a visual.

That my friends is a sofa on blocks..prime seatiní for the tractor pulliní excitement. Notice how itís roped off? Thatís a sure sign that somebody dedicated must be savin those seats after driving that piece of fine fine furniture alllll the way from West Virginia in the back of their pick em up truck. And donít Mama deserve the best seat at the fairgrounds after losing her leg to the diabetes and her wig to the last twister to hit the trailer park? And if it rains donít fret, weíll all be so drunk weíll just think Uncle Juniors gone pissed hisself drunked in his sleep again.

Does this make me a snob or just sane? I have no idea.

I want nothing of it.

Nothing at all.
