James Pratt is a local hero in Beaver, Oklahoma, because only he can call himself a seven-time winner of Beavers famous World Cow Chip Throwing Contest, an event where folks throw dried up cow feces as far as possible.
At the 39th annual event on Saturday (Apr. 19), Pratt is going for an eighth consecutive win, and hopes to beat his record of 200 feet and seven inches, as well as his competition, which includes his own grandsons.
But the turd tosser isnt worried about losing, because he has more than luck on his side.
Pratt explains, I lick my fingers between the first and second throw. It gives me luck, but people say it cant be just luck because Ive won so many times. Maybe Im just a natural, because I can throw poop better than others.
