    Finland is a great country but some of the events are simply mind-bloggling. Take for instance, the Wife Carrying World Championships in Sonkajärvi, the World Cell Phone Throwing Championships in Savonlinna, and the Mosquito Swatting Championships. what other weird events have you been to? what's the weirdest event in the world?

    Baby Jumping festival

    it cannot be weirder than the Baby Jumping festival in El Colacho Spain. The festival is right what the title suggests...grown men dressed in devil attire jumping over a line of little babies. It's not for fun, apparenbtly is to keep the eveils away or something like that. Pretty weird, i think!

    Those are all pretty odd to me. But I bet they're a lot of fun. I think that the cow races in Switzerland just sound like the craziest things ever. I don't know why, but they sound like fun!
