The Iowa State Fair Husband Calling Contest

The hog calling contest is a staple of midwestern county and state fairs, but Iowa puts a different spin on the idea with a husband calling contest! You may have seen a viral TikTok video that’s racked up more than a million views in the last six days featuring an edited version of some of the contestants from the 2017 competition. The video above is the original uncut report, which gives some context to the silliness. The winner receives a ribbon, a $5 cash prize, and bragging rights, which is what makes it so competitive. The Iowa State Fair also has a mom calling contest for kids, and of course, the traditional hog calling contest, too. -via Boing Boing
