I’ve had to do this a few times on the way home from the bar with Caitlin, and it’s not easy.

7. Toe Wrestling, England

The English have some of the worst feet in the world (I know this because I have a little foot fetish and try to compare feet from around the world whenever I can) so the Toe Wrestling Championship sounds absolutely terrifying. Plus, whoever came up with the idea first?

8. Konaki Sumo, Japan

The Japanese probably lead the world in ‘strangeness’, and this must be one of the strangest things of all. Two sumo wrestlers hold a baby each and the first baby to cry is the winner. Why don’t the Sumo wrestlers just Sumo wrestle instead? That is their job, right?

9. Hodaka Matsuri, Japan

Excuse the photos of nearly naked Japanese men wearing nothing but white loin cloths.

What can I do to redress the balance??
