PEOPLE are generally told off for pushing their greens around the plate, but an event in Germany might have just found the perfect get-out clause for playing with your vegetables.
The Krewelshofer Lake’s annual pumpkin race encourages its competitors to paddle against each other atop giant homegrown pumpkins for a cash prize.
The giant vegies weigh in at a hefty 250kg, a requirement to prevent any possible capsizing.
One of the competitors, Mailin Matuschek, said it wasn’t as difficult as he had expected.
“It was hard fighting against the wind to get anywhere, but when you are in the groove it works”.
And what happens when the race is over you ask? Well, the largest Halloween and pumpkin soup festival ever of course!
THE rise of workplace drug tests has reportedly led to a massive increase in “human urine sales”.
British media are reporting on a number of online vendors selling frozen urine, synthetic urine and even fresh stuff from obliging non-drug-taking donors.
And it’s not just the actual wee that is on sale - the trade also includes a host of companion items such as heat pouches to warm the liquid up prior to tests, as well as synthetic penises which form part of so-called “delivery systems” sold on sites such as urinetheclear.com.
