    Dorset Knob

    Dorset knob-throwing festival cancelled after becoming too popular | England | The Guardian


    A “knob-throwing” event has been cancelled because the size has become too much to handle for the organisers.

    The Dorset knob-throwing contest involves competitors hurling a traditional Dorset knob – a hard biscuit – as far as they can. The record throw of 29.4 metres (96 ft) was set in 2012.

    This is now the third year in a row the organisers have been forced to cancel; in 2020 there was no venue available and in 2021 Covid put an end to the festivities.

    But this year organisers have admitted that the event, due to be held on 1 May in Cattistock alongside the Frome Valley food festival, has become too popular for the organisers to manage.

    Other events on the day include knob-eating, knob-painting, a knob and spoon race, guess the weight of the big knob, knob darts and a knob pyramid.

    Probably my favourite weird British "sport."



    Just a massive piss up really, which is what it's all about.
