瞧瞧美国人怎么找乐子:-)

 

1、亚利桑那州的鸵鸟节:每年一度,狂欢者们可在一个50分钟的鸵鸟竞赛中声援他们喜欢的一只鸵鸟,然后向其“索要”一个鸵鸟蛋——应该不是一个笨蛋噢5 <wbr>Funky <wbr>American <wbr>Festivals

Ostrich Festival
Chandler, Arizona
At this annual bash celebrating the southern Arizona tradition of ostrich ranching, revelers can cheer on their preferred bird during a 50-minute ostrich race and then down an ostrich burger—presumably one not made of the losers.

2、世界投南瓜锦标赛:每年11月,特拉华州的参赛者们采用弹射器、离心机以及其他自制的奇妙装置,来尽可能远地发射(投掷)一个8~10磅的南瓜。目前最高记录是4483.51英尺。(——真是吃饱了撑的5 <wbr>Funky <wbr>American <wbr>Festivals

World Championship Punkin Chunkin
Bridgeville, Delaware
How far can you chunk a pumpkin? Each November, competitors in this contest use catapults, centrifugal spinners, and other homemade contraptions to launch an eight- to ten-pound pumpkin as far as mechanically possible. The record: 4,483.51 feet.

3、运动雕塑竞赛:艺术的流放?每年5月,马里兰州的巴尔的摩,沿该城内港会举行一个长达8小时,绵延15英里的竞赛,这些雕塑/工艺品由人掌舵,经过逆浪,泥潭和沙地穿越内港。得奖者内曾有两名摇滚演员,赛中他们自驾一辆昵称为"Hunk a Hunk of Burnin' Junk"的汽车。

Kinetic Sculpture Race
Baltimore, Maryland
Is it art—or transportation? Both, it turns out, when human-powered sculptures cross sea, mud, and sand in an eight-hour, 15-mile race along the city’s Inner Harbor each May. Past award winners have included two Elvis impersonators in a car nicknamed Hunk a Hunk of Burnin’ Junk.

4、人造卫星节:威斯康星州的马尼托瓦克。1962年9月,前苏联发射的人造卫星4号上,一块炽热的碎片从太空掉落到马尼托瓦克市中心的一条街道上。俄罗斯人回收了那块太空碎片,而该镇则从此形成每年一度的节日来纪念这一事件。节日的亮点在于,“遗失的太空碎片竞赛”——道具采用普通的铝箔,和一个艺术展。

Sputnikfest
Manitowoc, Wisconsin
In September 1962, a chunk of glowing debris from Sputnik 4—one of the first Earth-orbiting satellites, launched by the Soviet Union—fell from the sky onto a street in downtown Manitowoc. The Russians reclaimed the piece, but the town hosts an annual festival to commemorate its arrival. Highlights: a Miss Space Debris contest—costumes made out of aluminum foil are common—and an Artta This World art fair.

5、冰尸节:科罗拉多州,每年3月举行,表现形式为:灵车游行,抬童鞋赛跑,冰火鸡保龄球戏。而这是为了纪念某个Bredo Morstoel爷爷,此爷卒于1989,其冷血家人将其用干冰裹身置于一小棚内来等待a cure for death(不知啥东东,大概就是死后的某个程序吧,比方说整理遗容啥的)。  (——恐怖ing。。。5 <wbr>Funky <wbr>American <wbr>Festivals

Frozen Dead Guy Days
Nederland, Colorado
When Grandpa Bredo Morstoel died in 1989, his cryogenically minded family packed him in dry ice and placed him in a shed to await a cure for death. This annual March party honors him with a hearse parade, kid coffin races, and frozen turkey bowling.
