DOG SURFING - Hawaii and California have had dog surfing competitions since the 1920s. Apparently, points are given for the length of time on a surfboard, wave sized and "confidence" the dog shows.
PIG DIVING - Yup, this doesn't happen in the U.S. South, but in rural China! The Piggy Kingdom Amusement Park in Zhejiang province has pigs jump off a 39 foot platform. That's 6 feet higher than Olympic diving platforms.
SNAIL RACING?!? - Yes. Since the 1960s the World Snail Racing Championships in the English Village of Congham has held this race. Contestants have been said to come as far as Hong Kong. Of course, if they get there at a snail's pace, it'll take about 100 years from China to England. :) These races have happened since the 1960s and we're sure they must go on for weeks!
