It’s fair to say that last year’s inaugural Phoenix Idiotarod was a success. No bodies were impaled or skulls busted open during the human-powered, urban shopping-cart race. But who knows what’ll happen when the dumb-a-thon returns to the pothole-heavy downtown streets? Is this a measure of success? Well, that’s up to interpretation. No matter what we think, feel free to be a fool by, uh, borrowing a shopping cart, dressing in costume, and recruiting some fellow partners in low IQ for the ’08 version.
