Romania royalty seems really classy, they marry a sheriff’s deputy and run local cock fights in rural Oregon for $20 a head and sell Mexican food to them.

While the US crumbles as a world power, cock fighting is breaking news.

Barky was interested until he found out that “cockfighting” involved chickens.
