I always thought of myself as a serious guy from the modern west... but rolling around in the wet grass sure looks like a good bit of fun! Better than sitting on my ass at home in front of the computer, that's for sure.

We British are reputed for trying to kill ourselves :l. Every May 1st people in Oxford like to jump off the Magdalen Bridge into about 2-4ft of water.

We are mad....

They think it's a Roman or even an Ancient Briton thing, so it has been going on for millennia.

I'm pretty sure the one on the stretcher was the bloke who won the first one, that's why he is holding up the cheese at the end. I think I read that the winner got taken off on a stretcher.

Ha. There is a page dedicated to it on the BBC website.

BigBonny, you do not know the power of cheeeeese. :O Aside from that, that hill would be awesome for sledding.

I know this is a tradition, but I still cant see why anyone would want to hurl themselves down that hill and potentially injure themselves pretty badly for some cheese!

If it had just rained... and I had a box or something to go down in... then it would be fun.

Of all the strange things in the world, the Gloucestershire Cheese Roll is my favorite.

Besides the broken bones and various other injuries that could happen while doing this, that actually looks really fun. I'd be one of the people who were using the mud as a slide to go down the hill, lol. Forget trying to run.

I drove past that hill when I was in the UK.. and it really is very steep. I think it would be fun to slide down, but not with a bunch of people coming down with me, and probably not going as fast as most of them were either.

You also get a cheese if you win the race, as well as if you catch it.

It's damn good cheese though.

Cheese wheels! I remember this from last year! XD What a funny tradition. What else do they do in the rest of the world, this stuff is always interesting.
