The world is a pretty messed up place...

...with lots of things going on within it. Sometimes it's hard to be a normal person and go through life without entering yourself in some sort of weird competition. If you do end up finding yourself enter some extravagant or crazy competiton - then what should you go for?

Let's find out.

World Beard & Moustache Championships

We can't actually believe that this is a real competition. I'm currently sat here still trying to grow out my moustache from Movember and I still haven't achieved anything. Mind you, that's probably because i'm a lady.

The Worm Charming Competition


If you thought snake charming was intense, you should see worm charming! It's the loose sister of snake charming and to be honest, we're not really sure how you charm a worm. This competition though has been running since 1980 in England.

Toe Wrestling Championships

The more hardcore version of thumb wrestling. The aim of this competition is to wrestle each other... with nothing... but your toe... I can't actually believe i'm writing this. It was started in England in 1974 by four guys in a pub (shocker...) and is still held annually.

The Annual Air Guitar Championships

This extremely difficult championship is hosted in Finland, and happens annually. Personally, I enjoy this sport because it allows me to express my musical side (or lack of, depending how you look at it).
