How Far Can You Spit a Seed?

I know it’s early, but if you’re pondering your annual summer vacation, you might pencil this in on June’s calendar.  From Mike Rowe’s “Somebody’s Gotta Do It” program, I learn about the most interesting bits of uplifting distraction from life’s pernicious insanity.  Mike’s latest gig is on TBN (Trinity Broadcasting Network)—it’s a “church-TV” station, but oh, so much more!

Last week Mike took us to Luling, Texas (USA) to whet our appetites for all things “watermelon”, including the Watermelon Seed Spitting (World) Championship held in June.  I fib you not, it’s nothing short of amazing to watch children and grown men alike spit watermelon seeds from a marked line.  And the one who spits farthest receives a trophy, boy howdy!! 

It’s all about lung power, so they say—and pay attention to the stance, in the video below.  This is good clean family fun, seriously.  So, check out the links I’ve provided, and hey—we might get a group together in a few months and caravan down to Luling 🙂
