Celebrate cooters this weekend

Inverness Florida. The Cooter Festival is such a big deal that it's been featured on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart (video) Plus, the festival will feature the world's largest Lynyrd Skynyrd (the most irrepressible band on earth) memorabilia collection, and... in person... the son, sister, and nephew (that's 3 different people) of Skynyrd bassist Leon Wilkeson, along with a childhood friend of the band who also used work for them and for the Rolling Stones. Some of these people will play a live show. There will also be a "Miss Cooter" pageant (Too bad John McCain can't be there to enter his wife in it.)

Please note: the newspaper article advises that you should bring your own picnic table and be ready to dance. (!?) If you don't already have one, you'll be able to see and even touch some cooters at the festival.

It does look like fun - except for hauling in a picnic table! ;-)
