Maybe they’ve been racing cockroaches for centuries but all we can say is these strange events seems to be the sport of choice for many.
Or at least, more than we’d ever thought possible.
The Slap Game
Is this aptly named 'Slap Game' even a real sport? Consider this another encounter with the uncanny. With no committee or governing body overseeing this sport, it's truly a game of roguery that's played in different countries with slight variations for prizes.
All you need are two players willing to get walloped on their face. They take turns trying to flip each other's origami squares and slapping the other person if they succeed.
Boy, to think that someone losing their rubber duck down a river will one day turn into an annual event held all around the world is quite a funny turn of events.

Just watching this 500-mile race through Indiana will leave you with the eery feeling of being caked in dust.
