I was at a birthday party the other day and this live slap-fighting event was on TV, a sport I'd never heard of and still can't quite believe is a real thing. I'll assume others here have probably heard of it but I couldn't decide if I was seeing some linear descendant of the gladiators or a parody off The Simpsons. It was probably the most unwise contest I'd beheld since the guys on Jackass hit baseballs into each other's crotches. It should be subtitled "buncha idiots soon to be permanently brain damaged."

The rules were one person stands there completely emotionlessly and doesn't flinch while an opponent pile-drives his face with an open-hand after three wind-ups. Then they take turns at this til either one falls over or, (shows wisdom and) gives up, or after five rounds the judges declare one a winner, and oddly, the winner is not the person who slapped hardest, but the person who showed the least reaction to the slap.

I noticed they had cotton stuffed in their ears, I assume to sop up the bleeding from inside the skull?

And I thought after competitive birthing I'd seen everything.

The SA made movie Mercenary For Justice starring Steven Seagal features a new martial art called "slappee snotee", sort of like this.  Wink

We used to occasionally play a game called toe-toe-toe where three people would place their toes together, then start punching each other in the torso. Whoever moved their toe away lost. One night I got really drunk (so I couldn't feel much pain) and played it against a (sober) marine. I won! But I wished I hadn't the next day when I woke up and my torso was completely carpeted in bruises. I'm lucky the guy didn't break my ribs. In short, a game for the young, dumb, and drunk only.

Heard of this a few years ago....
Didn't know it was still a "thing", or that it was on television now....

That sport is called Power Slap and their events air exclusively on Rumble. I love it and hate myself for doing so.

I think this should be the official sport of the Darwin Awards.

I would imagine the cotton wool would be to prevent air being forced into the ears and bursting the ear drum.

I'm holding my breath in anticipation of below-the belt slap fighting. That's a sport castrati would have dominated.

I do recall some decades back, an outbreak of nut flicking.
