Anyone who’s spent time outside of the ‘burbs knows that when a bunch of guys get together, sometimes — usually after consuming a copious amount of beer — they’ll decide to find out who’s best at some ridiculous task. For example, at some point in history one cowboy turned to another and said, “I’ll bet you can’t ride that bull for 8 seconds.”
So it shouldn’t be surprising that a few midwestern farmers (who apparently had a couple of old combines laying around after the harvest) decided to see who owned the toughest rig by convening an old-fashioned combine derby.
Except, of course, it is surprising. Enjoy.
