The cheese rolling competition in Gloucestershire
Just watched a video of this years event, it’s brutal!

I’m amazed no one gets killed!

I have stood at the top & bottom of Coopers Hill (didn’t go down it) & it’s bloody steep!

roll a bottle of turps down that hill and let Pickle off his leash. The galloping hairpin would set a record course time

They have some pretty mad rituals in Spain but I think this lot out-do most of those...

Just a few miles from me, and has been a feature if the Whit weekend for as long as I can remember.

What ever you think it looks like on the telly, it's far fucking worse when stood at the top of Coopers Hill looking down to the bottom. I've never even been tempted to have a go, but have had a few mates over the years who have done it.

Used to be a great piss-up of a day years back, but if anything, it's probably a bit more regulated these days...

I hope the cheese is ok.

It's forced into this, with no attempt made to ascertain its willingness

MAD IN ENGLAND

Those lightweight Spanish fuckers running on cobbles with a few bulls are just out for a jog followed by a siesta.

Isn’t everything radioactive on account of the granite round there?

I used to love the Tar Barrels festival at Ottery St Mary when I lived down that way. Right headbangers, those blokes.

Beautiful old village where many of the houses have thatched roofs, and they run around with flaming barrels dipped in tar on their backs, throwing them around. What could possibly go wrong?

What is the gradient Crassus? It looks steep on tv but I’m guessing it’s even steeper in the flesh?

The tv hides the reality of the gradient - as tr3bor says nutters

Got to love these old traditional events, like that 'ball game' thing where dozens push and shove across a village landscape

Been going for centuries and a two finger salute to 'elf and safety
