Hands on A Hard Body

(Believe me, it's not what you may be thinking.) On Saturday night, after our trip to the brow, eating a nice long meal at Mi Casita, building a campfire and making s'mores, Mia enticed us to watch Hands on a Hard Body. If you can find a copy of this movie, get it! It has been a long time since I've laughed that hard.

Basically, HOHB is a documentary about an annual contest in Longview, Texas, in which folks stand around with their hands on a brand new Nissan pickup and whoever lasts the longest, wins. The record is 102 hours. These people are EXCITED about the prospect, let me tell you. As one guy put it, "Cars don't make money. Trucks make money!" In my opinion, this is a close tie for first with Vernon, Florida, in the category: Most Hilarious Movies About Crazy People You've Probably Met If You've Ever Lived in the South.

The movie was made back in 1994. Does anyone know if this thing is still going on?
