It's a rough gig, but somebody's got to do it. They've been spittin watermelon seeds on the fourth in Pauls Valley since Dwight D. Eisenhower was President.

The watermelon seed spitting championship in Pauls Valley has been featured in the Guinness Book of World Records, and on Ripley's Believe it or Not...if you remember that t.v. show.

The world record seed spit occurred in 1989 in Pauls Valley,..when a man from Chicago launched one nearly 67 feet.

Taylor Anderson and her friends drove down from Oklahoma City to compete in the women's division Thursday.

And Taylor didn't do too bad...she launched one nearly 17 feet..
