    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    Found this link as well that you may be interesting:
    http://www.sandowplus.co.uk/Competition/Burns/lessons/lesson01.htm

    Its the original Farmer Burns mail order wrestling course from 1912.
    I'm sure this is the same one Matt Furey is currently selling for $50 US.
    Here it is free in PDF format. Worth your time to read, not only from an historical point of view, but from a training point of view - this is an original strongman and submission wrestler before steroids and bodybuilding clouded what real training really is.

    Enjoy

    "In Burn's special case, however, no one can injure him in the slightest by choking, as his throat and neck muscles are so highly developed that he can protect himself by contracting the muscles and holding them firm and solid."

    No ****?

    I can give neither official confirmation or denial :)

    I have read from a few sources (Furey included) that Burns was known for his incredibly strong neck - although I doubt that it was 100% impossible to choke him out.

    Then again, I don't think anyone ever did ?

    Very interesting. I'd think it'd take some monstrous neck muscles.

    Supposedly Farmer Burns could survive a 6-foot hangman's drop.
