Ladies and gentlemen, allow us to proudly present a few fun photos from the 60th annual Bavarian Fingerhakeln Championships.

Or, as far as we can tell, the only place in the world where you can dress up like you’re in a scene from Beerfest and try to yank someone across a table with one finger.

This is the extreme finger wrestling world championships, and it can be enjoyed while sipping a liter of beer – officially making it one of the greatest things ever.

Here’s a little video tutorial from last year’s event. You would think that with a thousand HD channels, we would have seen a bit of this Stateside. Alas, we did not, but sooner or later this craziness is going to blow up in bars across this great country, I can feel it.

Why not? We had to toss in a little Beerfest clip for you to enjoy as well (although maybe don’t watch this one at work, or let the kids hit play, there’s a curse word or 12 in it).
