description: Sure Alaskan huskies are cute, but drunken idiots are a lot funnier. This stroke-of-ignoramus reinterpretation of the famous Alaskan Iditarod dogsled race shifts the workhorse indignities from dog to human, replacing the sled with a shopping cart and the huskies with men and women. Beginning in DUMBO and ending in Union Square, teams of racers (four pullers, one rider) must hit two checkpoints along the way, but there's no specified route — it's every idiot for himself. So, get to work "finding" a cart and modifying it for increased shock absorption. It's time to pull your own weight — mush! (JKG)
Here is an account of the REAL iditarod yo!
