Ass Kicking Machine

First off, it's in Burnt Chimney, not Wirtz, just off of Hwy. 122. Wirtz is about 5 miles away. The World's Only Ass Kicking Machine has, sadly, fallen into a spiral of disrepair it may never come out of. As recently as 1999, it was still able and ready to go with it's ability to kick "over 100 asses an hour." As of August of 2000, it's now in such a state of disrepair that it won't be recognizable to those who'd not made the trek during it's "glory days." Maybe Bob should get on the upkeep pronto before someone kicks his ass!!

Burnt Chimney doesn't have a zip code, so we've filed this under Wirtz.

OK, I've not been, but it seemed like it belongs.

Bob Booth's 1988 device is reported to have been inspired by one of the ass-kicking machines in North Carolina, but may be a more advanced design.
