Joining the ranks of odd trends like
extreme ironing and planking is Gibleting
— a testicle-themed gag that involves liberating one’s testicles in a normal social setting. Gibleting
is the world's newest adrenalin
sport, combining the thrill of social activity
with the satisfaction of getting one’s scrotal unit
(i.e. giblets) out in the open air.
Part of the attraction
seems to centre on the issue of whether it is really a sport or not. It is widely considered
to be tongue-in-cheek.From
its modest beginnings as a festive distraction
during a staff Christmas party, Gibleting
has has become
a one-of-a-kind mix of performance
art and danger sport.
Whether conducted solo or in a group, some locations
where such performances have taken place include a club in central London, a park, on the street and in the London Welsh RFC bar.
