Wife Carrying Championship

Post by Yogi »

Tradition marries sports and fun in the annual Wife-Carrying World Championships celebrated in the town of Sonkajärvi, Finland, between the 2nd and 4th July 2004.

:omg: I think I'd get a hernia if I tried this.

that's a lark!

the wife has to be 108 lbs or more, in case someone needs that translated.

the name of the town must get its fair share of razzing, if you say it carelessly, so that it sounds like Sontajärvi, it would mean Manurelake.

next i suppose you'll dig up the pig calling contest?

Somebody's boring me. I think it's me.
