THE WORLD RECORD?

UNBELIEVABLE

The longest spit of a cherry stone in competition is 28.51 m (93 ft 6.5 in) by Brian "Young Gun" Krause (USA) at the International Cherry Pit-Spitting Championship at Eau Claire, Michigan, USA in 2004. On the same day in the freestyle competition he spat a stone 33.62 m (110 ft 4 in).

YES, IT'S SPITTIN' TIME AGAIN!

What can we expect this year?

The big spitting Clint World's Best Practice Thomson will be back to defend his Globe Vista Australasian Championship belt.


They sent this bloke, Mike Wardill (right), a couple of years ago and he did fine but this year, guess what, Two Big Guys.

Shane and Jack Jordan know how to chop, spit, and talk.

Back home in Taranaki Jack should be mayor and if he wasn't so young, he would be.

Steve Hollander from Hilux New Zealand Rural Games said Shane and Jack could do anything - play rugby, cricket, arm wrestle, even bake a pavlova.

This is Jack Jordan.

LET THE SPIT OFF BEGIN!

CLINT WINDY THOMSON WINS THE WORLD


32.32 minutes in, the NZ Cherry Stone Spitting Championships.

MANJIMUP
SATURDAY
13/12/14

THE new GlobeVista Australian Cherry Pip Spitting Champions previous winner Clint "Howling Wind" Thompson.

He won it last two years ago and came back this year a dark and quiet horse but once that pip was clean and ready it went like a bullet.

Next year, 2015, Clint will spit off in Queenstown for the right to say: "I am the Champ of the Southern Hemisphere."

It won't be easy. The New Zealanders not only have a buoyant economy, they have a way with the cherry stone.




These two idiots (below) called the big event and had to work on their feet when a spitter caught a small child on the side of the head and very nearly removed his ear.

In Manjimup, health and safety is never forgotten and ambulance officers raced to the scene and stretchered off Doust (he's the old one with the beard) after they found him gasping, coughing and wobbly on his feet.

Organisers are saying it was the biggest festival yet and no better example than the 3000 standing gawking at grown people spit.
