World Black Pudding Throwing Championships

An ancient battle between Lancashire and Yorkshire continues in the form of the World Black Pudding Throwing Championships

This annual event takes place in Ramsbottom (don't laugh it's a very nice village with a steam train and stuff, just down the road from my parents) on the outskirts of Bury the home of the black pudding. In the inflatable mascot phase of the early 90s, fans of Bury football club would wave inflatable black puddings.

Now they just throw the puddings at Yorkshire puddings in a re-enactment of the war of the roses.

Personally I think it's a waste of a perfect good black pudding which should otherwise be sliced and fried then served with bacon, sausages, fried eggs and mushrooms and stuff. Nom nom nom.

eta: here's a video from last year's contest
