Odd Sports Video: Watch Hilarious Egg Russian Roulette World Championships

Gabe ZaldivarPop Culture Lead WriterJune 27, 2012

Holy crap, this looks like a ton of fun.

Imagine you and several of your buddies enter a dark smokey room, knowing full well only one will leave as a winner. 

One by one, each man will make a decision that may have them suffer the greatest of losses, the need to wipe egg yolk off their face. 

Oh, it may not be the scary proposition of real Russian Roulette, but it's better. You know, because nobody ends up dying in the most insane manner possible. 

ITN reports on the event that takes place in Swaton, a village within Lincolnshire, England. 

The annual event sees each competitor pick an egg out of a box of six. Five have been hard boiled, but one is left raw.

The eggs are then smashed against the competitors faces, meaning the unlucky challenger is left, literally, with egg on their face.

Hmm, they failed to mention that this will now be a staple of every single BBQ I throw during the summer. However, I may need to include a beer incentive to the mix. 

The 2012 champion of egg-cellent fortune was England's Jerry Cullen. Three cheers for a man who merely kept his cool and, unlike the bad guy in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, chose wisely. 

If this activity doesn't grab you, there were also, "two person throw and catch, egg relay and egg target throwing disciplines."

I need to get to Swaton next year.
