83YO Man More Spry than Me. Why Are You Not Surprised?

An 83-year-old man, trapped under a flipped tractor, dug himself out using only his wits and a pocket knife. The extraordinary feat has been described by some as a 'life or death' situation, though, given his age, is probably more accurately classified as 'near death or death'.

On a side note, why am I not shocked that a man named Cockerham has eight children? Clearly we know which meat his wife prefers. Is it wrong to make jokes about an octegenarian? Perhaps, but it's why you like it.

PHOTO: Cockerham, pictured here with the offending tractor, says the incident only served to remind him of the giant mistake he made when he chose farming over opening a gourmet popcorn franchise. 'Madison still doesn't have access to delicious kettle corn, and I can't help but feel that I'm to blame."
