Chav Olympics

A friend of mine was wandering through the site afresh to check out the new design and found a link to my page on fainting goats, he emailed me to tell me what a weird thing it was to have, and I explained how I find weird stuff like that really interesting when he replied with a link to the Worm Charming Championships website, which I thought was great (only the Brits could invent that). I emailed to say it was fantastic and he replied with a link to the World Bog Snorkelling Championships home page (I swear I'm not making this up, congrats to Phillip John who successfully defended his title for the second time in 2004). The World Championships are sponsored by Ben and Jerry's ice cream no less. There were 146 entrants last year. At my jubilation with the bog snorkelling (which, like the worm charming, I'd heard about before), he replied with a link to the legendary Redneck Games. Again, I'd come across this before, but then it occurred to me that the UK needs it's own event featuring a culturally deprived sector of the community, it will henceforth be known as the Chav Olympics. For those people who are unfamiliar with the word Chav, check out the Chav Scum website and, more importantly, their handy guide on spotting a Chav.

Anyway, recommended events so far are:
