Hulkin' It: 80 Amish Guys Pick Up And Move A House

men-moving-house.jpg

Way to not help, dog.

They're not actually Amish by the way, they're Mennonites. They're similar but distinct religious groups. I just used Amish in the title because if I'd said Mennonites at least a half dozen of you would be scratching your heads wondering how a bunch of space rocks are going to pick up and move a house. This is a video of 80 Mennonites (give or take a horse-drawn carriage full) picking up and moving a house onto its foundation. It is the first house I've seen with 80-manpower. An impressive feat, but I could have gotten it done all by myself WITH TECHNOLOGY. *drives bulldozer through side of house* Okaaaay, I thought that was going to push it. You boys patch it up and let me get a redo.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to LupusYonderboy, who agrees these guys should really make friends with the Hulk.

    The Filipinos have this thing too, it's called bayanihan.

    Very impressive. :)

    80? it took 80 of them to move that tiny little house?! My! Those puny Mennonites are such weaklings. Why-I-could have moved it.... okay, no, not really by myself. :-)

    It reminded me of when we had ants that carried crumbs of food across the kitchen floor to the baseboard. - which reminded me of the Dave Matthews song.

    Saying something tough then referencing Dave Matthews cancels out your statement altogether.

    Dang, I knew I should have left that part out!

    Also, I could only think of the Stop the Castle scene from Men in Tights.

    Man, that amish mafia is tough. Miss one payment and they take your house.

    Now this brother has Levi as a partner. Any problems, he goes to Levi. Trouble with a bill? He can go to Levi. Trouble with the constables, carriage drivers, Alvin, he can call upon Levi. But now Brother Michael has got to come up with Levi's money every week, no matter what. Business slow? Fornicate with thine own self and pay me. Oh, you had a fire? Fornicate with thine own self and pay me. Place was hit by lightning? Fornicate with thine own self and pay me.

    Hey Obidiah, I've got an idea! What if we built it on the foundation?

  • Andrew St. Andrew

    that's exactly what i thought at first.

  • Bling Nye

    See, even a Mennonite knows how to NOT film vertical video.

  • zatoichi
