Waiting for a chicken to drop a deuce is not unlike Waiting for Godot (on a flatbed truck), but locals in Austin make time for it every Sunday.

On the latest episode of 'MUNCHIES: The Podcast' we visit the Little Longhorn Saloon on "Chicken Shit Sunday" to watch poop-driven bingo and drink beers with Texans as they tell their stories. The honky tonk bar is one of the last old school spots in the city that's still living by the "Keep Austin Weird" slogan with the staff to prove it.

For just $2, you can pay to play poop bingo and patiently wait to see if one of the two hens will shit on your numbers. According to Terry Gayona, who currently runs the event, "The longest it's taken for them to shit is an hour and 39 minutes, and when they know they're on camera, it's even longer."

The winner gets $114 dollars, or 57 Lonestar beers. Tune in to meet the bar patrons and find out the fate of the winner on the latest episode.

So go ahead and grab a beer, get into the vibe, download the podcast, and tell your friends to do the same. And if you haven't done so already, subscribe to MUNCHIES: The Podcast on iTunes and Soundcloudif you feel like it. Check back in two weeks for the next episode, which involves exploring Austin's greatest dining scene: on wheels.
