Arizona Hosts Crappy Contest

OATMAN, Ariz. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Poop will be flying in Oatman, Arizona, this Sunday (Sep. 2), and it’ll have everyone heading for the showers.

That’s because the 27th Annual Burro Biscuit Toss is taking place, where folks will be spray painting donkey doody gold, and having a tossing contest with it.

Event coordinator Jackie Rowand says hundreds of people from all over the world come to chuck poo with the best of them, and this year will be no different.

But crappy contestants better practice, because there’s a particular skill involved in tossing poo.

Rowand says the best way to fling the burro biscuits is to “pick a biscuit with some weight to it, and wait for the wind to be in your favor.”

And while the contest is usually all fun and games, sometimes st hits the fan.

Rowand recalls a year when a Japanese group was filming the event and people started flinging the golden feces at each other.

She adds, “It was an all out war.”
