On A Reminder That I am in Minnesota

From today's Minnesota Daily:
Representatives from 10 St. Paul campus student organizations competed in the Milkmaid Competition, a contest to see who could get the most milk in 30 seconds.

The milking was performed to popular songs whose lyrics were rewritten by students to reference agriculture and milking cows.

Participants parodied artists such as the Steve Miller Band, Sir Mix-A-Lot, Tobey Keith and the Baha Men and were awarded points for the best song and costumes.
There must be something neat about the incongruent blending of the traditional and old-fashioned milking contest with today's music. Of course, now that I think about it, both activities, taken separately, share a common goal: milking as much as you can as quickly as possible to the beat of a good rythm. The only difference, I suppose, is who gets to be the cow.
