Kudu Dung Spitting Contest

Okay, Neatoramanauts. Should you find yourself in a game reserve in Africa and someone asks you to play a little game of Bokrol Spoeg, we have one piece of advice for you. Don't.

You see, it involves putting poop of an antelope-like animal called kudu in your mouth and then spitting it out. Whoever spits the poop pellet the farthest, wins. Though technically, I think anyone who puts poop in their mouth on purpose should automatically lose.

Oddity Central has the story:

The origins of kudu dung spitting can be traced back to tribal hunters who had difficulties catching the fast antelope. Most times the only sign of the animal was a trail of dung, which meant it had been there but it was long gone. Apart from swearing at the elusive kudus, hunters would engage in a contest of pellet spitting, to pass the time. In countries like South Africa, the disgusting custom is so popular that there’s even a championship held every year to find out who can spit a piece of antelope poop the farthest. [...]

The secret to a less-disgusting dung spitting experience is finding a nice, hard pellet and not letting it melt in your mouth for too long before spitting it. People with first-hand experience in the African sport say even the most experienced participants are unwilling to put fresh kudu dung in their mouths, as it leaves a bad taste and attracts the ridicule of other competitors.


Could you imagine the inventor of the game talking his compatriots into putting poop in their mouths? "Hey you guys, I've got an idea ..."

Just so you know, I think it should be "one piece of advice." "One advice" isn't usually said in English.

In any case, I won't be putting poop in my mouth any time soon. :)
