The Sport-Pig Federation runs the “Pig Olympics.” Piglets compete in three events; track, swimming, and football. Since they push the ball around with their noses, maybe it’s more accurately “snoutball”.
Whether one is trying to break the record for a cowchip toss or a wife-calling “Soo-ey!”, people love watching competitions.
Finland recently hosted the 17th annual Wife Carrying World Championship games. One might have expected more husbands to compete, but the rules are very strict. You have to carry your own wife.
Beaver, Okla., proudly touts itself as “Cow chip throwing capital of the world” and runs its chip tossing contest every April. But if hurling dehydrated fecal patties isn’t your cup of tea (trust me, you really want to avoid mixing water with these things), you could travel to Savonlinna, Finland for the annual Cell Phone Throwing Contest.
Cell phone Olympians are judged not only on distance, but on style (aesthetics and choreography). The record is over 95 feet. I wonder, if you throw an iPhone, does it become a Frisbee?
