Who needs the Winter Olympics when you have Japanese Competitive Hole Digging! Right? Anyone?
In an event that seems like wholesome fun for everyone (especially if you enjoy somewhat pointless manual labor), nearly 300 teams competed in Japan's Chiba Prefecture for the 14th Annual All-National Hole Digging Championship.
The games that pit one team's pit digging skills against another's offer a prize of roughly $1,000 and a golden shovel worth nearly the same amount! And let's not forget about the prizes for costumes too!
Taku Suzuki, the event's organizer, had this to say about this half-hour challenge that tests your ability to dig yourself into the largest hole:
"Once you're an adult, I don't think there is anywhere else in the world where you can competitively dig a hole. So we thought that people would enjoy this event."
The winners this year were from Toyota City, and just like a Toyota, this team is going places! Those places are under the surface of the earth, but hey, way to dig deep guys!

How's this for a silver lining?
Philip Seymour Hoffman's untimely death, while inarguably tragic, saved lives.
Well, that's the theory at least.
Writer, director, and fellow addict Aaron Sorkin first met Philip on the set of Charlie Wilson's War. As they bonded over cigarettes, coffee, and recovery from substance abuse, they also admitted to each other that there was at least a decent chance that addiction might be what finally kills each of them.
According to Aaron, however, the Oscar-winning actor was able to find the bright side.
Phil, as Aaron called him, confessed:
K, can we talk about how hot Elizabeth Hurley still is?!
The 48-year-old model/actress still looks as stunningly gorgeous now as she did while playing Austin Powers’ psychedelic shagmate in the '90s!
We know that the rumors of her and former President Bill Clinton having a secret sexcapade have been proven to be TOTALLY untrue (smh, Tom Sizemore!) but even William J would have to agree that Liz is one tall drink’a water!
The British bombshell left her house in London today dressed in an cozy winter-white puffa coat. Underneath she had a star-print sweater on, tight jeans, and some heeled black boots.
Ch-ch-check out more pics of lovely Liz (below)!
You may not have had any affair with the Prez, Miz Hurley. But if he sees these pics you’re certain to be in his dreams!

Rumors surfaced recently Queen Bey was shaking things up in the Beyhive, but apparently that's not true at all!
The Halo singer didn't just unceremoniously boot her manager; sources from Beyoncé's camp say that never happened at all.
Well, not recently at least.
They pinky swear the marvelous mega-star has in fact self-managed for years!
As much as she adores her loving hubby
Raw fish and raw love!
Seems like Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield are a match made in Hollywood heaven!
Or like, the most AH-Mazing spicy tuna roll ever created! LOLz!
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 stars were snapped exiting a low-key sushi establishment in El Lay on Wednesday evening, looking cozy and cute.
The duo is preparing for some CAH-razy publicity surrounding the sequel to their hit film, so a romantic and quiet date might be just what the doctor ordered before the fandom madness begins!
