We here in Illinois have a big problem with Asian Carp. It's one of those "Oh holy hell, what the pluck are we gonna do?" kind of problem. Luckily we also know how to make the most of a difficult situation.
Do you have some free time this weekend? If so, head to Bath, IL for the seventh annual Redneck Fishing Tournament. There is one rule: "Fishing poles not allowed, nets and baseball bats are OK." Might as well have a beer or two while you're at it.
Some pretty big media names (ESPN, National Geographic, CBS, Time Magazine, etc) have been present in past years, so put on a silly costume to maximize your chances of fame. Did I mention there is a prize for best costume? Bonus points awarded for gratuitous vuvuzela.
Now for the grand conclusion to the fun guys video, during which the boat sinks and things get serious.
This weekend, watch your nightly news and think of the lucky people of Illinois. We've been polishing this turd for years and it still looks like shit.
