There are lots of sports for fun. The most strangest funny sports are dwarf tossing. Traditional entertainment at a number of Australian, Canadian and American pubs which competitors must throw sports equipment as far as possible. The uniqueness of the competition in that the throwing objects are … dwarfs. Naturally, dwarfs do not do it for free. The right to throw a dwarf costs around ten dollars. There was time of debates on the competition: is it ethical or unethical to throw a dwarf? Human rights activists demand ban this “barbaric fun”, but the dwarfs themselves defend their right to be thrown, stressing the fact that sometimes it is the only possible chance for them to earn and the process of flight gives them pleasure.
Royal Shrovetide Football is another kind of funny sport. Imagine a football, which involves the entire city. The task of this royal football is to bring the ball to opponents' goal.

Townspeople are divided into two teams: living north of the river, are automatically considered as "northerners", to the south - "Southerners." Restrictions on the number of players don't exists. The role of the gate operates two mills located in different parts of the city, and a field for the game is the entire city.
