Watch the convicts compete in The Prison Rodeo at Louisiana State Penitentiary. Browse for treasures at the World's Longest Yardsale, held each August along 630 miles of Alabama, Tennessee and Kentucky Expose yourself at the Amtrak Mooning in Orange County, California.This year sees the 28th annual mooning of Amtrak. After 8pm, night mooning starts. Mooners are advised to: 'bring a torch with plenty of batteries...Night mooning is better because it is less crowded, cooler temperature, and more authentic'. Compete in the Redneck Games, in Buckeye Park, Georgia, where eager participants engage in such high-brow events as the mudpit belly flop, the armpit serenade, and bobbing for pig's feet.
