Idiot Rod Humor

No, really. When I first heard of the race, back when I was in junior high or thereabouts, I mis-read the name as "idiot rod." Which seemed the perfect description for a vehicle on skids, tied to a string of big hairy dogs, that you have to run behind.

And then dietary guru Stephan Guyenet says you can too feed your dogs potatoes. Pretty obviously he doesn't own any dogs, and if he does he keeps them out doors, downwind, in a area with stiff prevailing breezes.

Yeah, right. Try getting that rig through the DEQ, Stephan.
