A bunny friend of mine sent me this a few years ago, I had told my friends about being excited to go to my first Highland Games, but wasn't sure what to expect. Well, he sent me a very funny list of the games played by the Scots. So here is Grouchos theory to Highland Games.
"They all seem to involve a rock or a stick. Mmmm, yummy stick. Oh yeah.
Caber tossing - a really big stick
Hammer toss - a rock at the end of a stick
Weight for height - tossing a rock over a stick
Strongman walk - carrying a really big rock.
And of course
Golf - hitting a little rock with a stick.
And he was right, although they don't play golf at the games, but the rest was right on.
