Notice how the British competition is just one letter away from a traditional American corporate competition? shut eye

I used to wipe the shi* off my shi*kickers every Saturday night before I went out shi*kicking. Then some goat-roper kicked the shi* out of me. I don't do it anymore.

That is one of the dumbest Goddamned things I have ever seen. It belongs on Trutv in one of those 'World's Dumbest...' shows.

What, no toe stomping or eye gouging competition? And here I thought the UK was a more advanced society than what we have here in the US.

According to Wikipedia, Shin kicking is one of the events at the Cotswold Olympick Games, along with tug of war, gymkhana, dwile flonking, motor cycle scrambling, judo, piano smashing, and morris dancing.

Who needs the regular Olympics when you have the Cotswolds?
