July 13, 2009: Mud Games

It's those southerners playing in the mud again.

But not that southern U.S. red mud, it's southern Korea's gray mud.

Quote:
Participants enjoy the huge mud slide, compete in the mud wrestling contest and enjoy many other activities like escaping mud prison as well the ultimate, a mud bath. Some of the final weekend participants are foreign tourists, and especially American GIs, but most of the participants during the week are Koreans, attracted by clever marketing by the town.

The town fathers and mothers discovered that the mud is more lucrative as a tourist attraction than using the muddy fields for agriculture. The economy generated from the festival supports the many hotels and restaurants along the waterway and several blocks inland. There is also a great deal to see and do in the vicinity and a free tourist bus takes visitors to local sites, including an impressive coal mine and a famous Buddhist shrine.


But in a new wrinkle this year...

Quote:
Hundreds of people were hospitalised for the skin disease they contracted in the pre-events of 'Boryeong Mud Festival'.
According Byryeong City Administration, some 200 out of 1,500 participants contracted some kinds of skin inflammations while they were undergoing mud baths in the pre-Mud Festival events. The mud bath events were held on the embankment of Daecheon Stream in Daecheon-eup, Boryeong City, for two days.


I would think most streams in Korea, most of Asia for that matter, would be risky to drink or even bathe in.

Getting a skin disease from rolling in the mud in Asia. Who'd a thunk it?



Gravdigr  Monday Jul 13 05:12 PM

Let's roll!



Undertoad  Monday Jul 13 05:37 PM

The redneck games were held last weekend but I could not find enough good images of it to make an IotD.




Undertoad  Monday Jul 13 05:41 PM

Although it appears that Bruce was there.




xoxoxoBruce  Tuesday Jul 14 01:32 AM

Just giving her a hand.

Why is that old man slapping Bruce on the behind?


Gravdigr  Tuesday Jul 14 02:29 PM

She didn't even drop her cig. Now, that's class.



jinx  Tuesday Jul 14 07:31 PM

I swear I've seen that chick, that bathing suit, and that cig in pictures of Redneck Games from years past. Can't make the search thinger work to find the pics though.



lumberjim  Tuesday Jul 14 07:40 PM

i'll second that emotion



Flint  Tuesday Jul 14 07:59 PM

I'm certain there was...a girl in a rebel flag bathing suit... but it could have been a biker thread, maybe.



jinx  Tuesday Jul 14 08:11 PM

No, no... the one you're thinking of was from one of Zippy's river trips. Im talking about that girl, with that suit, climbing out of the mud holding her cig up.



Griff  Wednesday Jul 15 09:09 PM

Is the image in post #4 flag desecration?
I'm told the other pic is an approved use of the battle flag.

The Redneck Games are about 2 hours from our place. You don't have to drive far to find games like this on any weekend.

Ha! Awesome glatt!

Clearly a few of us need to get out more though...


zippyt  Thursday Jul 16 09:01 PM

As soon as she put it on. Really.


DucksNuts  Tuesday Jul 21 05:14 AM

Is that girl's head out of proportion? or is it just me?



xoxoxoBruce  Tuesday Jul 21 12:00 PM

A lot more mud.



Flint  Tuesday Jul 21 01:09 PM

God, chicks covered in mud are sexy. Why is that?



xoxoxoBruce  Tuesday Jul 21 01:12 PM

You equate mud with dirty, and...

I think it's more of the wanting to lick--I mean wash them clean...


Clodfobble  Tuesday Jul 21 05:17 PM

I think it's because when they're all monotone like that, they look more like they're naked.



Flint  Tuesday Jul 21 05:28 PM

That makes sense. The wang-brain triggers on stimulus which has any chance of leading to the promised land.



DucksNuts  Wednesday Jul 22 06:41 AM

Exxxxcuse me...head too big? anyone



ZenGum  Wednesday Jul 22 10:57 AM

Sorry, Ducks, the wang-brain and all that.

Yes it does look a little large in proportion, but I think it is a combination of mildly small build and the camera angle slightly from above.

Wang brain ... promised land ... guy poetry.

That's actually a very beautiful sentiment. I'm crying a little bit.


bradcapo2  Thursday Jul 30 06:21 AM

Thanks for sharing this useful information. It's great.



SPUCK  Thursday Jul 30 06:59 AM

Welcome to the mud pen bradcapo2.



capnhowdy  Thursday Jul 30 07:50 AM

Are those hidden links, Brad?



capnhowdy  Thursday Jul 30 07:51 AM

Why yes! Quite smooth........
