All right. I'd like to hear about the goofiest categories you'd like to see at the Olympics, like seed spitting, wheelbarrow races, cow chip throwing...

Marathon farting. this would require tons and tons of beans however, and wouldn't go down well with Greenpeace.

Did you know the Olympics once had a category for literature? Seriously.

Not sure how they scored it. Most alliteration? Best metaphor? Best pun? Most judges moved to tears?

I heard about this. Some judges said that some of them just cant bear it anymore. The competition took so long and they are so bored, that they cried when the games finished. Some of them had to pinch themselves to stay awake.

Not just literature. Seems Great Britain won a gold for town planning - the English members will realise just how ironic that is.

It was really a marathon(going by the number of performers), by the way.

Not to worry. Cow chips are the dried lumps of what cows leave behind.

Irony.

But this all got very complicated when judges tried to be ironic themselves when awarding points.

Fencing is quite funny too. Did you see the setting ? And their mask ? They look like Daft Punk.
