Many aspects of the World Toe Wrestling Championships, held last weekend in England, are hysterical. Here are a few:
· The three time champion Paul Beech is a "recycler." His wife, Heather Beech, won the women's title. Their wedding night must have been a kick. (So to speak.)
· Mr. Beech's nickname is the "Toeminator."
· Members of the World Toe-Wrestling Organization (WTWO) have previously applied for Olympic status. Didn't fly.
· (Here's our favorite.) The sport was invented in the '70s so that a game could exist in which Brits would be successful. Mission accomplished!
