The ever funny As the Apple Turns
points us towards the ancient sport of Cat Flinging
From the rules:
- Dead and/or stuffed cats may not be used other than as distance markers. They may be spectators, however.
- Only cats who volunteer for the contest may be used. A cat is determined to volunteer if it does not run when approached with the intent to use it for Cat Flinging.
Sounds like good fun, must get myself a cat somewhere. I wonder if anyone's ever done a comprehensive study of which cats get the most distance. One would think some of those ugly naked cats get further as they have less wind resistance. On the other hand they seem to lack sufficient bodymass, meaning momentum won't be as good.
