How Do We Know The Toothbrush Was Invented In Arkansas?

Fletchcetera directed me to this:

Crowds in Arkansas came for the lure of cage fighting and $1 beer, but police say what they got instead was men ripping each others’ clothes off and kissing — a stunt suspected of being orchestrated by Sacha Baron Cohen of Borat fame. . . .

Fort Smith’s convention centre hosted “Blue Collar Brawlin.”’ Fort Smith police Sgt. Adam Holland said organizers told him a character named “Straight Dave” would goad a planted audience member into the ring for a fight.

The two men would then wrestle, rip away some of their clothes and share a brief kiss reminiscent of one between Baron Cohen and Will Ferrell in the film Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby.

And that’s exactly what they did. The Sergeant’s reaction is priceless:

The audience, as well as local fighters drawn to take part in the show, became enraged. “It set the crowd off lobbing beers,” Holland said. “They had beers in plastic cups. Those things can get some distance on them actually.”

I have two reactions. One, obviously, I wish I’d seen that. Two, isn’t it a bit unfair for Cohen to pull his stunts in Arkansas? I’d say it’s like shooting fish in a barrel, but it’s Arkansas, so maybe it’s more like this guy shooting chickens in a Wal-Mart sack:

Oh, and if you don’t already know, it’s because if it was invented anywhere else, it would have been called the teethbrush.

    Yes!!!! You’re back. Well, maybe you never actually left, but did you get a following of the faithful few Bama B-hamians?

    Re the Cage fight: Ain’t no lovin’ like our mountain lovin’. I am so honored just to have my hometown be targeted by the likes of Borat. But just so you know, the civic center in question is also apparently the center for one of the largest swinger conventions in the mid-south (or so I’ve been told). Can you imagine the draw?

    Go Hogs!

    so if one of those swinging couples got divorced after the convention, would they still be cousins?

    When it comes to baby gear, strollers are definitely found in a very big variety of
    shapes, size, options and benefits. Working folks would like to remain practical but sustain stylish so using
    the leather messenger bag will certainly insure such experience.

    The dresser~ the changing pad may or may not stay there, I
    never used it with Maddie, but for now I am just leaving
    it on top of the dresser.
