Yes you read that correctly. There is a sport where all you need to do is be able to keep a live ferret down your pants for the longest and you win. There are a few caveats though. Here are the official rules:
- You must be male
- You can't wear underwear
- You can't be drugged or incapacitated
- The Ferret can't be drugged or incapacitated
- Ferrets must have a full set of teeth
That's it. You tie the ankles of the trousers and place two ferrets inside, and fasten your belt. You stand in front of the judges as long as you can. What makes you good at it? Not a whole lot… just an ability to 'have your tool bitten and not care.' The world record is 5 hours and 30 minutes!
A female version of the sport - ferret busting, was attempted by putting ferrets inside a woman's blouse. It proved unsuccessful.
