Gurning: An Ugly Sport...WATCH!

Gurning: An Ugly Sport...WATCH!

I'd never heard of 'Gurning', a sport that allegedly originated in the Middle Ages.

It is said that townspeople would throw a horse collar on the dubbed, 'Village Idiot', who would make ugly faces in exchange for ale.  (...and now you know!)

Slap a collar on and call me, 'Sporty'!  (My scraf...I call it a scraf rather than scarf...will have to suffice.)

Video explaining this odd activity is below.
