From Monday: Chasing Cheese Down A Hill 2009

I really don't know what the object of this competition is, but why it's not an Olympic sport is beyond me. You can keep your rowing, archery, badminton, etc. -- give me guys chasing cheese down a hill that is guaranteed to turn the participants into floppy dolls. And if local charities would use this instead of silent auctions, fun runs, casino nights, and walkathons, I'd be the most generous donor in the county.

How do you pronounce "Gloucestershire"?

The hill doesn't look that steep.....but I bet there were many a broken bone caused by it.

Man, is there some kind of Pulinobler prize you can win for that post? I haven't laughed that hard for that long since I can't remember when.


BTW: If we ever gotta fight them folks we're gona lose. That's tough, and then some.

First, to Marmite Toasty - what a cute graphic!!!

I'd consider entering one of those cheesy events if they'd offer a good red wine at the finish line.

Brutal
Now that I've been tricked into watching that - would it be a form of...Rickrolling?

Yeah, the gal hollering out "Get the cheese!" is priceless - kinda like the gallery goofs yelling at Tiger "Get in the hole!"

Are the people at the bottom supposed to be human brakes? It appears they are trying to stop some of the contestants rather forcefully

And to think that they were once the base of the biggest Colonial Empire in the world! They DO know how to fight, though! I once had an experienced Army office tell me that you STILL don't to be on the receiving end of a British bayonet charge!

They are all saying "That nacho cheese, that nacho cheese, it be mine!"
