CLEAR LAKE, IA (NBC) — The World Wide College of Auctioneering is back in session in Clear Lake, Iowa.
"Rubber baby buggy bumpers," the class recites, fast and in unison. "How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood."
"It definitely takes a lot to try to get your tongue wrapped around it," laughs Chantz Davidson, a 17-year-old aspiring auctioneer from Orient, Iowa.
"Tommy Attatimus took two T's tied them to the top of two tall trees," the class continues.
