Where: Luttenberg, Holland
Swientie Tikken, or Swine Tickling is a field-full of fun … and pork on the trotter! Imagine several pigs minding their own business (or doing it) in a muddy field … then enter a bunch of blindfolded “contestants” who attempt to “touch” each of the four-legged oinkers. A point is awarded for each “contact”. The first to achieve the monumental feat of points-to-pig parity is proclaimed the winner.
It’s not just as straightforward as all that though, as contestants may try to hinder their fellow competitors. A point is awarded for every successful intervention, which means there’s one less pig to chase for the interceder, one more for the interceded! This hilarity can endure for the whole of the afternoon.
