AAAAAAAAS YOOOOOOOU WIIIIIIISH!!!!
We just like chasing cheese more. xDActually, it`s just for fun, and great to be a spectator.
Now...we are even.
Europe and America are now even.
No more fighting. No more jabbing. We have sh*t on both sides of the lake.
Let`s play nice. :)
Apparently it`s a way to get cheese. I guess they don`t have grocery stores over there like we do.
Oh, and I`d sooner do this than the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona.
That`s better than being stopped by the trees behind them.
as you wish
There have been attempts to ban it, because people are injured every year. The hill is steeper than it looks in this video. There are better pictures here:
Do you know why it`s done?
No, neither does anyone else. It certainly isn`t for the prize - that`s the cheese.
If you go to hospital in the UK with a broken leg, a doctor will be seeing you in a matter of minutes. The NHS works extremely well for serious injuries. It works extremely well generally, it`s just that complaining about it attracts more attention.
2. "Get the cheese!" Thanks lady, never would`ve figured that out, not with the name and all.
3. They only do this in countries with "free" healthcare. BTW, sorry about your broken leg, the doctor will along to see you in 6-8 months.
Heck as a kid I could do that all day long. I tried rolling down a hill a couple years ago and I felt like an 80 year old man afterward.
WORTH IT THOUGH.
Here`s a toast to the British.
Never again! 2 sprained ankles, brusied ribs and a nearly dislocated shoulder!
