At the Fur Rondy festival in Anchorage last weekend, the sled dog races had to be cancelled because of lack of snow. (Maybe they should have relocated them to the east coast?) But the unseasonably warm weather couldn't derail the Outhouse Races.
What's an Outhouse Race, you ask? A team sport with wacky outhouses raced on skis across a finish line. Required: a helmeted official pooper, reading material, and one roll of toilet paper.
If you like potty humor, the Outhouse Races are for you. The team names alone are worth a chuckle: Flying Duck Farts. The Splatters. Poop Mobile. Sittin' Pretty. Ladies of the Throne.
And even if you're not into poop jokes, it's hard to keep a straight face with the announcer saying Duck Farts over and over (Calling Duck Farts to the starting line.....Duck Farts have moved up in the bracket....Duck Farts are breezing through this...)
Alaska is famous for its outhouses, so might as well make a team sport out of it, right?
