Broke the bank at Las Vegas, or won a packet of smokes for getting your tinkle out in class? Outrageous, heroic or plain stupid bets.

Wacko-Jacko CHAMONE
My local coffee shop has been the source of much entertainment (and since I quit uni, employment) since it opened just over two years ago.

A small amount of background here, around January last year there was a competition between the regulars involving drinks stamps (i.e. you got a stamp every time you bought a drink, buy 9 get the 10th free etc) and the person with the most stamps at the end of the month won a £20 voucher for the shop. Here's the story of the most ridiculous thing I did to get just one stamp...

The normal challenges had all been done, like necking a cap-full of 1 million Scoville chilli sauce, asking the random girl who walked past every day inside for a drink (I got a 'Rejection' stamp for that one...), but this was by far the funniest and most outlandish: The Wacko-Jacko Chamone challenge.

The town in which the coffee shop is located (PeliDeli in Matlock, Derbyshire if you're wondering) centres around a large square with four corners of pavements connected by traffic lights, quite a distance really. The challenge was for somebody to do the moonwalk around the entire square, throwing in crotch-grabbing moves, hands in the air and "tee-hee!"s at entirely random moments, all the while listening to Michael Jackson on an iPod.

I did this one sunny January afternoon, got the stamp, plenty of funny looks and a video a complete stranger took including his classic commentary of "Is that guy on crack?!".

I didn't even win the £20 voucher for fuck's sake!

I've been to Matlock
for a wedding. The hotel wasn't Monty Python but it did have a "feature" whereby flushing the toilet would result in the waste bubbling out of each sink on the floor. On to the floor. And no, this wasn't just our sink, we'd booked a portion of this family run hotel and we all slept in our cars. And paid 60 gbp/night for the privilege.

I'm intrigued...
name of the hotel?

Also, the video is lost in the annals of several different phones, but I'll check my old memory cards.
