Get-R-Done 

What sort of games should we expect from "The Redneck Olympics"? A tractor pull? A still-making contest? A quiz testing the contestants' knowledge of recent Confederate history? Or is all of that too tasteful and dignified?

The Redneck Olympics, which gets under way on Saturday, September 1st, at the Delta Fair & Music Festival at the Agricenter, features such redneck contests as bobbing for pigs' feet and the popular mud-pit belly-flop. There's even an event called "The Arm-Pit Serenade," wherein contestants, using a technique pioneered and perfected by second-graders around the world, "fart a tune" without passing any actual gas.

Oh sure, the Delta Fair & Music Festival has rides, food on a stick, and great music by actual musicians like Jim Dickinson, the Spin Doctors, Amy LaVere, and Animal House alums Otis Day and the Knights. But wouldn't you rather see a bunch of sunburned bubbas playing their armpits? Yeah, buddy!
