Cockroach Racing – Serious Business
By S. T. Cartledge
So apparently this is a real, legitimate thing. It’s not so much a back-alley gambling shindig that goes on in strange and exotic countries, but a full-on corporately-sponsored, bring the family along and make a day of it event. Apparently it’s been going on in Australia for 31 years on Australia Day.
I mean, look at that. They got their VB and Bundaberg sponsorships, radio coverage, and even a bit of charity work. What’s not to love about it?
Seems to pull a decent crowd, too. Considering the entire thing is about which cockroach can run the fastest.
And here they are pulling tiny tractors!
And going around a tiny racetrack!
This is why I love Google image search. Totally made my day.
