    The 4 legged race is great…but what does that have to do with farming? I understand the seed planting, and seed throwing, but you don't see many farmers harvesting while tied with two of his friends?? They farm in the Midwest……I think you guys should start something like this up there!

    I think it's just a “spirit” thing, like we work so well together and this is a fun way to show it. But you're right, I don't see any connection to farming or peasantry.
