What a bunch of BC

Who says we don't have classy entertainment in Indiana:

Vigo County Parks held an unusual competition Saturday at Dobbs Parks.

It's called the Buffalo Chip Throwing Contest.  Saturday's competition marks the 13th year for the event.

Contestants wear rubber gloves and select their favorite buffalo chip, a piece of dried buffalo feces trucked in from a farm near Ellettsville.  

Then they throw it as far as they can into a field.

Of course this type of throwing is much older than 13 years, only the feces isn't dried, isn't referred to as chips and comes from an animal other than the buffalo.

It's called politics.

One of the bars in New Haven used to have a cowpie toss every year at 3RF time.
