RACING FOR DUMMIES
Racing dogs in Alaska's Iditarod is one thing; racing shopping carts over the city's trash-covered streets in the Idiotarod is just pure insanity-and not even all that legal. To enter, you'll need one shopping cart, a group of five close allies, and a theme that'll stop your competitors dead in their tracks. And whatever your theme is (a slogan, song, conversation, attitude), you must stay in character at all times. Cheating and sabotaging your opponents is perfectly legalin fact, it's encouraged. But leave the overly competitive douchebag mentality at homeunless that's your theme.
