And who can blame him? The last time I needed a tow, I had to pay $70! It's outrageous. But Lasha Pataraya, a strongman from the nation of Georgia, was towing the truck attached to his ear for competitive rather than practical purposes.
Depending on the news source you read, the truck was either 8 tons (16,000 pounds) or 8 tonnes (17,637 pounds). Either way, that's a lot of weight to haul on your ear 70 feet.
