Humans, as a whole, are very competitive by nature. So, when we get board with the “normal” competitions, like sports, out there we can come up with some very weird ones to occupy our time.

1. International Women’s Day

In China, they celebrate International Women’s Day. Throughout the day men compete in races where they have to run in high heels. There are other competitions where they can compete with their loved ones. There are also bars that will offer them free drinks if they come in dressed as a woman.

2. Midget Throwing Contest

This is normally held in bars. It consists of a dwarf, midget, or little person putting on a suit made of special padded clothing or a suit made of Velcro. Then, the patrons of the bar will toss one of them onto a mattress or a Velcro coated wall. The winner is the one who tosses the dwarf the furthest. This competition has been banned in a few parts of the world, but does continue on today.

Each competitor is scored on a 6.0 score system and there are rules. There are two rounds, each lasting a minute. In round one the person gets to play a selection of their choice. In round two the selection is chosen by a competitor or one of the organizers, so knowing how to improvise is important. Each competitor is judged on technical merit, stage presence, and airness.

This competition is to celebrate a rivalry between Lancashire and Yorkshire. The object is to knock the Lancashire pudding off of the pub wall with the Black Pudding that is being held together by a pair of women’s stockings.
