Castles To The Right- Mud Wrestling To The Left

True story.

I am driving down a country road slighty over the speed limit of 45 miles per hour.
The road is a winding series of rolling hills spotted with farms and farmer wannabee residences.

On my drive I am caught off guard by a new housing development of castles.
These homes are 6000 sq ft plus, with stone exteriors that were built by people who clearly take the "Your Home Is Your Castle" to heart.

I would guess they were inspired by a man who actually built a casle further down the road.
The man and his homesite has enticed a pilgrimage of Renasance particpants that is well known here in Middle Tennesee.

OK, back to the drive.
We have million dollar castles on the right and within 200 yards of the entrance way on the left is a sign.
A very professional and classy sign mind you.
If you were making this sign for those who are not rednecks, or common serfs you would say without shame:
"Here's Your Sign".

And what did the sign say?
"Mud Wrestling For Epilepsy"

I am sorry to say I was going a bit too fast to get the date and time of the event.
The location was going to be on the undeveloped land accross the street from the castles.

The phrase, "Only In America" immediately came to mind.
Of course it is wonderful that people of means are philinthropic.
It is also fun to think of people mud wrestling.
I would guess that the epileptics are not the contendors.

You wonder if this was the first idea bounced around and what was ruled out before mud wrestling?
Yard Sale- nope we might have to leave the gate open.
Fish Fry- nope - we don't want to be confused with a spiritual group...
Mud Wrestling is the new Jousting, yes that is the ticket.

Nothing will show the poeple we care about better (people who have frequency issues with brain waves) like us throwing each other down in the mud in little or no clothing.

I really am not suggesting that there is anything wrong with this plan.

I this is an excellent fundraising opportunity where wealthy people can come out, get really dirty, maybe get a few licks in against the neighbor who put in the bigger moat, support a great cause and have fun.

Only In America
