Iowa’s Hilarious Husband Calling Contest is Real [VIDEO]
Right when you think you've seen it all - you really haven't. The proof is in the video as we go to Iowa's famous Husband Calling Contest' held each year at the Iowa State Fair. And frankly, these contestants and their techniques are downright hilarious.
The video, from Iowa Public Broadcasting, has received over a million views and is going viral. The first thing people ask is, "is this really a thing?" Yes. Yes, it is.
After several contestants comically tried their hand at husband calling the judges chose their champion. Bonnie Swalwell Eilert yelled her husband's name with flair and I'm guessing Roy would come running.
According to the Des Moines Register, husband calling and hog calling are long-standing traditions at the Iowa State Fair.
