indexA friendly bet between a wrestler, Carla Fontes, and her high school coach, Stan Haraguchi, has led to the suspension of the coach and investigations by the police. The coach thought that Carla Fontes’ hair, which was flowing below her waist, was interfering with her performance at the game. Carla Fontes had not cut her hair since she was in intermediate school. The bet was that if Fontes lost the match, the coach would cut off her hair. She later lost the match, following a 3-0 start last week.

Although Fontes ‘ mother had forbidden her from cutting her hair, she allowed the coach to cut the hair, during a team meeting on Monday. However, Fontes had not communicated to the coach that her mother was against the idea. According to Donalyn Dela Cruz, the spokeswoman for the state Department of Education, the coach has been suspended.

Fontes’ mother was very angered when her daughter came home with her hair cut. She later told the Hawaii Tribune-Herald that her daughter’s hair went all the way down her butt prior to the events. She also noted that a piece of her daughter’s body had been taken away and that it appeared as though a rat was nibbling on the hair.

Carla Fontes also commended on the issue saying that she wished that her hair was not cut, but she loved wrestling because it allowed her to release anger. She also hoped that the sport would earn her a college scholarship. However, the coach declined to comment on the issue.

Kelcy Koga, the Principal, noted that it is the best practice to first seek parents’ consent before taking such an action, in any educational situation.

Arlette Fontes, the mother to Carla Fontes said that she would press charges against the coach. On Tuesday, the Hawaii County police started investigations into the issue.

Why not Chase Cheese down a Hill?

CheeseRollingSome people don’t mind wasting food and incurring injury for fun. Cooper’s Hill Cheese Rolling and Wake tradition has been taking place in Gloucestershire for hundred of years. There was a time when the unusual festival would feature other milder activities such as dancing around the maypole, tug of war and bobbing for apples. These ancient, harmless  festival activities have been put aside to make way exclusively for the absurd and infamous cheese rolling event. The event is held each year on the last Monday of May. There are four races each year. Three races are for the men and one for the women. No more than 20 participants are allowed for safety’s sake.

cheese-rolling-at-coopers-hill-2013-7-1369732489-view-0Cooper’s Hill is described as mean, cheesy and steep. Nobody quite knows the exact origin of the ridiculous event but it is believed to go back many centuries. Cheese rolling is a downhill race which at first seems mild, but there is a twist. Runners literally plunge down the course, chasing and plunging after a huge wheel of  Double Gloucester cheese.

We are sure this guy with a Swiss Cheese Fetish would be been to join in.

Cheese RollingThe simple event, overseen by a Master of Ceremonies,  is actually dangerous because Cooper’s Hill is virtually vertical and runners, in their effort to catch the cheese, go stumbling and crashing all the way down the hill. Even spectators on the side are not safe as  one of the hurtling cheese runners could plunge among them. In fact an onlooker has been seriously injured when they were hit by the thundering cheese. After all the commotion, the first person following the cheese who gets to the bottom of the hill first and intact, is the winner. And the only reward… they keep the cheese.

Baby Jumping? What? Why?

baby-jumping-festival-in-spain-article-body-image-1403538876There are many parents who are very protective with their children. It is unbelievable that there are those parents who are willing to put their babies at risk. One wonders what they would have to say about an absurd event that takes place each year in the village of Castrillo de Murcia in Northern Spain.

This is a ridiculous event where tiny one year old babies are involved. Some suck on dummies or pacifiers, none the wiser for the danger that hovers over them. One wrong step, and the babies could be seriously injured.

The tiny tots are laid on a mattress at the central square of the village. a-spanish-town-just-held-its-annual-baby-jumping-festival-article-body-image-1403539100The man takes a running start and jumps over the babies. While this is happening, another man dressed in black beats on a drum. It is unbelievable that even though this festival is thought to be one of the riskiest in the world, there have been no reports of injuries with the babies.

We would like to see the man jump over this baby – Grown Man Living as a Baby

The idiotic event involves a Spanish ‘devil’, El Colacho, dressed in bright yellow, who leaps over the one year old babies in order to cleanse their spirits. This absurd tradition dates as far back as 1621 as is the final event in a four day religious custom that celebrates the Catholic feast of Corpus Christi.

The idea behind the event is representative of the fight between good an evil. The ludicrous event is believed by the many parents who allow their baby sons and daughters to take part, to put them on the path to a good life. The bonus part is that the entire town benefits and sin is driven away.

Woman’s chilling devil exorcism filmed through keyhole

Posted: 29th January 2015 by Absurd Stories in People, Religion

Covertly FILMED keyhole footage of a lady’s genuine expulsion controlled by the villain has turned into a web sensation on the web.

The asserted removing of an awful soul was completed in the Roman Catholic Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary in the Czech town of Vranov and Dyji.

Church authorities demand the footage is real.

The chilling scene was recorded by Daniel Trochta who sneaked up to the entryway in the wake of listening to the shouting of an obscure lady.

He then recorded the mystery handle through a keyhole of the congregation..

The feature was posted on Youtube by Trochta in February yet went generally unnoticed at the time.

The creator kept in touch with: “I shot it through a keyhole. I recommend that you utilize earphones while viewing it.”

Catholic Church cleric Marek Dunda affirmed that the expulsion was honest to goodness yet declined to remark further.

“In the event that something is shot through a keyhole, there is nothing more to say in regards to it.

“We were asking God to secure and to free the individual. We utilized a Latin petition to God requesting an assistance.”

The exorcist additionally declined to uncover the character of the lady, saying insights about her condition were private.
