The woman with her head stuck in a tailpipe represents

Kaitlyn Strom’s 15 minutes of fame is stretching into its 16th minute and beyond.

Strom is the Litchfield, Minn., woman who wondered if her head would fit into the tailpipe of a pickup truck at a country music festival in Winsted, Minn.

It did.

And now she’s Minnesota’s representative to late night comedy shows, making her appearance last night on Jimmy Kimmel’s program.

    Full house at the Darwin Tavern for this one. When is her book coming out?

    • They should have mentioned the Twine Ball.

      /She is pretty well spoken for a 15 year old on national TV. If that is the dumbest thing she’ll ever do in her life, she’ll be fine.

        I don’t know. Why don’t we (as a group) avoid doing stupid things? And why don’t we stop rewarding people who do stupid things? Just an idea…

          There is this quote from P. T. Barnum that I believe is at work here:
          “Nobody ever lost a dollar by underestimating the taste of the American public.”

          Couple that with smartphones and social media and you have the reinforcement system that leads people to do things like put their head up a tail pipe.
