    Cheese Whiz time!

    Honorable Mention: Cheez Whiz
    22 May 2000, England | Every year Britons chase Double Gloucester cheese wheels down Cooper's Hill in an astoundingly bizarre and dangerous competition. Several seven-pound cheeses are hurled down the hill and dozens of contestants take off in pursuit. Their reward? If they catch a cheese, they get to keep it. But Cooper's Hill is so steep that the cheese chasers invariably tumble as far as they run.

    This year was no exception. The "winner" broke his arm, yet managed to smile triumphantly while confessing that he had broken his other arm several years ago in a previous winning dash. At least eighteen people were injured, including a spectator who tried to dodge a bouncing cheese. He was hospitalized for a head injury after a hundred-foot tumble down the steep slope.
    Despite its bloody track record, the Gloucestershire tradition has continued for hundreds of years, and contestants show no signs of slowing down. They earn an Honorable Mention, and we fondly anticipate a cheese-chasing Darwin Award nominee in the near future.

    See the cheese rolling movie!


    Got it from this link after a friend showed me some funny articles from a popular book.
