Over the course of your average day with me, there’s a better than average chance that two things will come up: I love cheese and I am inappropriately competitive.
Turns out I could be putting those features to good use: Cooper’s Hill Cheese-Rolling and Wake is an annual race near Gloucester, England, where half-witted people chase an eight-pound round of Double Gloucester cheese down what appears to be a double black diamond, straight up and down slope. If they win – and don’t die (what’s with that word “wake” at the end of the event title?) – they get that eight-pound cheese. Sounds reasonable.
