Auctioneers are an amazing breed.  I remember going to sales with my dad when I was little and just looking on in awe.  Not only at the auctioneers, but at the people who seemingly knew what the hell they were talking about.

The World Livestock Auctioneer Championship happened and here are some of the better contestants...


Here's the winner...and yes...he ends up crying during the acceptance speech.

I'm also reminded of Hank Williams III.  He put out an album of death metal with auctioneers as vocalists.

Original.  That's about the only word I would use to describe it.
