Popis

Ever heard of the Air Sex Championships in Austin, Texas? How about bog snorkeling in Llanwrtyd, Wales? No? Then brace yourself for Nigel Holmes’s bewilderingly funny ride through the wildest, oddest, and most wonderful cultural events. From snail racing and baby crying to throwing just about anything, hilarious infographics reveal the lengths we’ll go to uphold our eccentric customs.

Whether it’s flinging frozen rats or parading in holly evergreens, racing snails or carrying wives, human beings have long displayed their creativity in wild, odd, and sometimes just wonderful rituals and competitions. To show what lengths we’ll go to uphold our eccentric customs, British American graphic designer Nigel Holmes channels his belief in the power of hilarity to bring together a bewilderingly funny tour around the globe in search of incredible events, all dryly explained with brilliant infographics. You’ll encounter the startling facts behind peat-bog snorkelling in Wales (wet suits recommended), hotdog-swallowing in the USA (tip: avoid breakfast), or who can make a baby cry quickest in Japan. Through this gallimaufry of gamesmanship and passion, an endearingly warm and affectionate portrait of human endeavor and good humor emerges as Holmes proves, page after page, that when it comes to feats of bravery, endurance, or sheer nonsense, the world is united as one in the fine, and often hilarious, way of celebrating culture.
