TRUTH!!
A patent really was granted for the "Self-kicking machine", which has a self-operated crank and four spokes with boots mounted on them. The rockport country Store in Washington state has one that's been popular with tourists for years, and the Tom Haywood Store in Croatan, North Carolina has had one since 1937.
