Every year at a certain local festival, there's an event called Stuck on a Truck wherein the contestants see who can stand up and touch a truck for the longest amount of time. The person who lasts the longest wins the truck. I think there are also consolation prizes for a couple of runner ups.
Every year they set up a website so that anyone can watch a live feed of the goings on, and they include bios for each of the contestants.
And every year I read the bios and laugh. Here are a few examples gathered from different bios. Comments in italics are mine.
1. List any interesting facts about yourself? I like red trucks
2. Do you have any good luck charms, superstitions, etc. to help you win? My children and Jesus
3. What strategies and tactics will you use to win? Be the last one with my hand on the truck
4. What made you decide to register? My friends that I could definitely win I wonder if he knows that the prize is a truck and not friends.
