Some discoveries surprise me more than others. I have only just learned that Poland might be a byword for extreme sports. Well, some extreme sports.
A Polish website reports on a regular contest, which allegedly has already been taking place in a remote part of north-east Poland for 19 editions (how did that bypass me?) – the Annual Throwing of a Hammer at a TV Set competition. I’m sure they have a better name for that.
And the contest itself? Well, it does exactly what it says on the tin. People throw hammers at a TV set.
But it has two parts – you can either throw your your hammer at a TV standing atop a tall pole, or you can run for 1,5 kilometers and try and hit the TV. The last one is a bit unclear to me, but still, does it matter?
Ladies and gentlemen, underwater ironing is soooo last year.
