Maine Minutiae : Save Your Marriage! Carry Your Wife!
Calaveras (CA) County Fair and Jumping Frog Jubilee, Watermelon Thump in Luling, Texas, where the biggest attraction is the watermelon seed spitting contest and 35,000 people attend each year, and here's a new one to me that recently took place right here in Maine - The North American Wife Carrying Championships! I mean, we don't get the Olympics, NASCAR, NFL, Major League Baseball and whatnot, but we do make a sport of wife carrying! Just imagine the fun and companionship to be had by couples from all around the country.
