Throwback Thursday: The Third Squashing of America

Wow, we missed a few weeks of Throwback Thursday. Sorry about that, it got lost as a feature in our covering of, well, current stuff. But fret no more, for Throwback Thursday is back.

Previously on a Throwback Thursday, we visited The Fourth Squashing of America, part of a series of videos some of us made in college where we gave out vegetables (including squash) to drunks on Water Street in Eau Claire, WI. Well, this installment goes back one further to The Third Squashing of America filmed in 2006. Subtitled “A World Without Squash,” this is the year we were unable to actually get hold of any produce to distribute – and ironically this was the first one to get widely seen.

The Second Squashing of America eventually made it online, so really the only lost one is the first.

But that’s a good thing.

Anywho, enjoy. As in the Fourth, I’m the one in the Ninja mask.
