Having grown up in Southern Wisconsin I grew up getting a lot of grief from my Illinois relatives and friends, now living in Duluth I have realized how hot the competition is between Minnesota and Wisconsin as well, so maybe we should have a Wife Carrying Competition between states?

Every Fourth of July in the small town of Monoma Wisconsin they hold their Annual Wife Carrying Competition, that includes an obstacle course. I am not sure how much practice some of these couples put into it, but it is awfully funny to watch. This years winner is a police officer who along with his wife finished the course in just under a minute.

So you may be asking yourself what is the prize for such a feat? That would be $525 cash and his wife's weight in beer which happens to be 103 lbs. Check out the video below from last years competition.....On Wisconsin!
