Fair or not: using nose contraptions to push a peanut up Pikes Peak

This guy plans to become the first person in the 21st century to push a peanut to the top of Pikes Peak with his nose. It's been done twice before, or maybe three times depending on which article you read, but I think it's twice since I can't find the name of a third person.

https://www.thedenverchannel.com/new...es-peak-summit

However, the article say this, and it offends my sensibiltiies:

The city said he will use a contraption taped to his nose to push the peanut.


Apparently, though, the first person to do it also used a contraption if you watch this video: https://www.travelchannel.com/videos...pusher-0235616. And the second person attached a wooden salad fork to his nose if you read this article: https://gazette.com/life/outdoors/sp...09ea818a3.html

I don't know about this. I think if you're going to say that you're pushing a peanut up Pikes Peak with your nose, you should have to directly use your nose. What do you think?

Yeah, that contraption in the video is bullshit. His nose is two feet from the peanut.

That's where I stand. If contraptions are allowed, why doesn't he just attach something to his nose where he can walk upright? It's completely counter to the spirit of peanut pushing.

It should at least be its own category. He was getting some good leverage with that thing and the peanut is travelling quite a bit further with each push.

Why not just have a little scoop at the end and then you can toss it a couple feet each time?

Why not make that thing 6 feet long and you can just walk up the trail and fling that sucker for some real yardage?

I just drove up it a couple weeks ago. That was bad enough, this sounds like a ****in nightmare.

And no, you dont get to use a contraption, that doesnt sound very fair.

What’s the significance of taking a peanut to the top of a mountain versus anything else?

I can see this person in a future job interview. “So can you tell us anything else that would distinguish you from the other candidates.” “Yeah I once pushed a peanut up Pikes peak with a contraption attached to my nose.”

The more pressing offense is the perpetuation of the term contraption.

Should be sequestered to colloquial emeritus status, to be used exclusively in connection with 'down-homey, Cracker Barrel needle-pointed tchotchkes,' right alongside dagnabbit, flibbertigibbet and colsarnit

Sometimes you see an idea and immediately think, "That idea was born in a bar!"
