La Tomatina



La Tomatina is a mass tomato throwing festival in Buñol, Valencia in Spain which happens every last Wednesday in August. There are a number of theories as to how this tradition originated but one of the most popular is that disgruntled townspeople attacked city councilmen with tomatoes during a town celebration and it was enjoyed so much that it was repeated every year since (although banned under the rule of General Franco). Apparently women have to wear white and guys must go shirtless.
I've never been but, boy does it look fun!

A snortworthy gag if ever I saw one.
