Yes, you heard right. Fruitcake tossing. As far as I'm concerned, that's genius enough because I hate fruitcake with a fiery passion and think it should be sent to the deepest pits of hell, along with Christmas pudding. But I digress. Upon going through Lyndsy's photos, it became apparent that the disposal of leftover fruitcake isn't limited solely to using it as a shotput.
Of course not. This is America we're talking about!! No, people build air cannons. And potato guns. And enormous slingshots of the girl-on-The-Amazing-Race-who-got-hit-with-a-watermelon variety. And TREBUCHETS. Seriously, it takes a fair amount of dedication to the cause to build a fruitcake flinging trebuchet.
For the record, this is a trebuchet:
Hmm. Perhaps I could introduce something similar here. Wonder if we'd be allowed to run it during Summernats and hurl leftover fruitcake at passing bogans.................. ;)
There's some photos of fruitcake tossing here if you're interested.
