If two people pushing a decorated outhouses in the snow sounds like a Japanese reality TV show to you, your perception isn't too far off. Yesterday two participants in such a show took part in the 17th annual Trenary Outhouse Classic on Michigan's Upper Peninsula, the Mining Journal tells us.
Also entered were two Elvis impersonators, a pair of sasquatches, and a team dubbed Chupa Cabra Crap House.
As for the race, the bottom line is that the money raised from the event goes to pay for park equipment for the unincorporated town of Trenary.
Why aren't there outhouse races in the Olympics?
As for the U.P., hey, at least it's below freezing up there.
