Shenanigans nearly broke out at the World Dart Championships. You know, just in case you were wondering. 

If you have never been to a World Darts Championship, that makes two of us. However, it looks like an amazing time as men who are as fit as bowlers compete to see who is more accurate with a dart. 

At the most recent clash, two super athletes nearly came to blows after gently shoving each other after pretty much muttering some strong words at one another. 

Granted, that sounds like a whole lot of nothing, but the announcer sounds pretty amazed at the proceedings. 

A tip of the hat to Deadspin, who caught this wonderful moment when a game of darts turned into two grumpy old chubby guys getting after one another. 

Thankfully, they have a great deal more information on what is an otherwise bizarre moment. 

England's Phil Taylor beat the Netherlands' Raymond van Barneveld in the semifinals of the PDC World Darts Championship in London yesterday, but not without a little controversy. Van Barneveld appeared to refuse to let go of Taylor during the post-match handshake, the two exchanged words, and it was as on as darts allows.

This just serves to prove handshake etiquette is paramount, especially in the rough world of International darts competition. 

As for the announcer, he takes an odd video and makes it a must-see one with his call of, "not happy. Shenanigans happening on stage."

Yes, shenanigans most definitely went down on stage.
