"Competitive slapping" is a thing?

Competitive slapping is a real thing. In Russia...which, if you can believe it, is even weirder than Florida. It must be the weather or something. Those people are...different.

Here's how "competitive slapping" works: two guys face off across from each other at a table and menacingly look at each other … until one of them slaps the other with an open palm. And this isn't light slapping either...this is a full-on hard smack.

This goes on until somebody gets knocked out or quits.

Just in case you want to get in on the action, you’ll want to book a flight to Siberia for next year’s Siberian Power Show, where the Male Slapping Championship took place.

And if you’re the last man standing, you’ll walk away with a cool 30,000 Russian Rubles … which is about $470 US dollars. Translation: not worth it. You'll have to pay me a lot more than that to put up with this nonsense.

See? I told you. Russia is weird.
