National Sport of the Netherlands
The newest craze sweeping Amsterdam, and hopefully soon to be an Olympic sport is Smart Car Tossing. With a lack of cows to tip in the city, drunken youth have stumbled onto an even more exhilarating past time - picking up Smart Cars and chucking them in canals. As you might imagine, pretentious owners of these vehicles are less than amused. I do not let that stop me, however, from having a good laugh at their expense. No word yet on whether insurance rates are higher for these oversized roller skates as a result. I have to imagine that's coming though.
