Say What?

As far as strange competitions go, there might be nothing stranger than the wife-carrying championships. Couples — who don’t actually have to be married — complete an obstacle course while the woman is wrapped around the guy. Most couples use something called the Estonian grab — which is when the woman is wrapped ass-to-head around the man, though a few try to complete the course piggy-back style. Wife-carrying is a sporting event that originated in Finland, so it should come as no surprise that a Finnish couple won the race. What did they win? Five times the woman’s weight in beer and five times her weight in cash. [CNN]
