The Inuit Sport of Ear Pulling

ear pulling

Occasionally there are interpersonal disputes here at the Neatorama office. This is how we resolve them. It's also the Inuit sport of ear pulling:

Ear pulling is a traditional Inuit game in which competitors sit with their legs in front of their bodies and intertwined, facing each other. Competitor's left and right ears, respectively, are linked to their rival's via a two-foot-long loop of waxed string. From there, the game is more or less self explanatory: the two competitors pull. The idea is to endure as much pain as possible. The winner is the first man or woman to dislodge the string from the ear of their competition, withstanding the pain a little longer.

I want to see what the winner's trophy looks like.
