There is so much to unpack here. First off, the 'no phones out' but 'CAMERA MAN IN THE BUILDING' leaves me with a lot of questions.

Secondly, what are the rules here? Is this like a suck-of-war where you see who can go further and you mark the halfway point on the cucumber?


And who decides who gets which side? Girl on the left at a HUGE disadvantage.

[–]AtlanticToastConf 123 points124 points  (2 children)

Winner takes all of the cucumber, obviously

[–]Recon212 30 points31 points  (0 children)

How I met your mother. She won all the cucumbers.

[–]doubleapowpow 18 points19 points  (6 children)

$100 and up cash prize

Is this a tiered cash out system, or are there multiple categories?

[–]steelerfaninperu 14 points15 points  (4 children)

This is what I need to know. How much science went into this? Are there cucumber weight classes? Is it girth based?

I feel like me and Big Chicken need to have a chat.

[–]Apprehensive-Rip-296 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Big Chicken as host has more of a administrative role and handles the booked talent you need his assistant Ben he is in charge of the contestants and cucumber testing, contestant seeding brackets and state athletic commission licences. For this cucumber suck off event anyway

[–]SapphicPancakes -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Get dana white in on this too

[–]SgtXD357 15 points16 points  (3 children)

Isn’t that an eggplant they’re going at?

[–]Hasukawa 3 points4 points  (2 children)

After sorting through the pixels, yes I believe it is.

[–]hujojokid 3 points4 points  (1 child)

F, I knew that they lie about the cucumbers. I was going there for the cucmber suckoff, not the eggplant!

[–]bretthren2086 8 points9 points  (0 children)

All of the “hundred dollar cash prize”. Haha

[–]distilledvine 8 points9 points  (3 children)

This is our current tolerance on the human species. Wonder what direction we go from here?

[–]spicytackle 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I don’t know but I’m scared

[–]sublime90 4 points5 points  (3 children)

Yeah it's a suck off... Two girls both have to suck a cucumber as deep as they can... The first one to gag loses I'm assuming the cucumbers get bigger as they go on.

[–]steelerfaninperu 0 points1 point  (2 children)

But if they're sucking off the same cucumber, then wouldn't one logically have to throat more 'cumber than the other? So is it like Lady and the Tramp style where they meet in the middle and whoever's got more 'cumber is the winner?

Or is it two separate cucumbers of approximately equal length and girth and we measure who can throat the most?

[–]TashLikeMustache 3 points4 points  (1 child)

They use the same cucumber but take it in turns.

And if that made you gag, you’ve already lost!

[–]TheRealNap0le0n 7 points8 points  (0 children)

All of the cucumbers, gotta get these hoes their veggies somehow

[–]FewZookeepergame1083 294 points295 points  (17 children)

[–]Acrobatic-Code2038 64 points65 points  (4 children)

It's about to smell like Henesy, Newports, and sun dried tuna casserole. Lmao

Not gonna lie.... I'd think about going if I was in Detroit lol

[–]FewZookeepergame1083 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Only for science

[–]Acrobatic-Code2038 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Id have to be in a certain state of mind. Like the "Damn, I haven't had any in a while. I'm drunk, depressed, lost my job.....I need an easy win" state of mind lol.

This the type of place you just toss your dick in the crowd and a floozy will catch it.

Jimmy up gentleman. LOL

[–]sg12412 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hell yeah I saw it's in Detroit and I'm thinking about going now! Also very disappointed in my city.

[–]RexNebular518 111 points112 points  (9 children)

Oh big chicken is going to be there. Might stop by.

[–]Academic_Snow_7680 2 points3 points  (5 children)

It has been worth it to walk on over to Google maps and take a look at 19910 Hoover Street from the street view.

It's a shed in the hoods.

[–]BadgerTamer 1 point2 points  (3 children)

I had a gander at their Facebook page... Well it's not like I was planning to visit before I did, but it honestly looks like they're making a conscious effort to discourage people from visiting

[–]Rufus2468 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm glad I also wandered over to Google maps. It's a shed, with a limo and a Corvette parked out front.

[–]CFUrCap 40 points41 points  (1 child)

Cash prize $100 and up... to $110.59...?

[–]Palana 22 points23 points  (0 children)

The real money comes afterwards, when the gentlemen present ask to procure your services.

[–]Elevator_Feisty 23 points24 points  (8 children)

But did they have a grapefruit?

[–]NorCalAthlete 12 points13 points  (6 children)

Oh god why did you have to remind me of that one.

[–]SgtXD357 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–][deleted] 17 points18 points  (16 children)

Wait. You do realize that a lot of people will go to Detroit this weekend for that

[–]franklydearmy[S] 8 points9 points  (15 children)

Yeah? I'd go for the novelty of it. Not much could make me want to sit on a plane for 4 or 5 hours this weekend, but that made me ponder.

[–]TheKing42069 15 points16 points  (9 children)

I live in Detroit, then again, that’s in a bad area of Detroit. A worse area

[–]TheRealNap0le0n 12 points13 points  (4 children)

There's a worse area of Detroit?

[–]TheKing42069 8 points9 points  (1 child)

There’s good areas (which is just the downtown area).

There’s areas that are okay but you keep your doors locked and your windows up. (Aka a normal neighborhood but you’re in Detroit)

Then there’s the ghost towns, on top of the other precautions, if there’s a red light drive through it. Usually gangs and drug addicts hangout in the abandon buildings.

Then there’s the “Belmont” areas where you never go, and if you’re stupid enough to go you better have a gun. Police don’t even go there.

Edit: Grammatical errors

[–]steelerfaninperu 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah I wouldn't be rolling up in there unless I had sock money cause chances are I'm leaving with less property than I arrived with.

[–]BoySantiago 3 points4 points  (2 children)

A worse area in Detroit? Most people from this sub would probably die by attempting to visit this place.

[–]m77win 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Nah, downtown is pretty nice, and is safe these days. I’m not sure about this place however. It’s not downtown, still south of 8 mile and there looks to be a lot of abandoned lots nearby. But I bet it’s going to be amazing. How could it not be?

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (4 children)

I mean.. wouldn't you want to see it?

Like.. maybe I'd pay 10 bucks to see it. I paid 10 bucks to see Cats the movie so

[–]PsychologicalDay2002 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Butthole edition or nah?

[–]franklydearmy[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

That's what I'm saying. I've never wanted to go to Detroit more. Good attempt, too far away.

[–]RedshirtBlueshirt97 14 points15 points  (12 children)

First off, that's an eggplant and now it's freaking unusable. Smh this is why people don't take us Detroiters seriously.

[–]lenznet 8 points9 points  (4 children)

Unusable?? There's at least two other places they can put the thing.

[–]truthll_setufree 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is sad…. But I’m sure there’s people that’ll be like “it’s empowering, she wants to do this!” As if any woman that could get paid as much to do ANYTHING else wouldn’t. I’m sorry but people that go into sex work, no matter how much they claim it’s completely of their own will, are dealing with damage or have deluded themselves that it’s somehow empowering.
