A teenager had to be rescued by authorities after getting her head stuck in a truck's exhaust pipe at a Minnesota country music festival - only to then be cited for underage drinking.

So the Hutchinson Leader today fills in the gap and provides her answer to the obvious question people have asked since she saw the tailpipe as an invitation at Friday's night's country music festival in Winsted, Minn.: What on earth were you thinking? A Facebook video of the ordeal has been viewed over 2 million times.

Minnesota firefighters use a power saw to free the girl who said she had wanted to see if her head would fit inside.

If you're wondering whether such an embarrassing incident dented the woman's ego, worry not: she's not ashamed of what she did and she finds humor in it. Posting to Facebook a photo of herself holding the sawed exhaust pipe and the owner of the oversized truck, she writes: "Yeah I'm the tail pipe girl, watchu know about it?" "How much alcohol does it take to get your head stuck in a diesel pickups exhaust tip?"
