World Custard Pie Championships! Ready, Set, Throw

The World Custard Pie championships which had been started in 1967 had been suspended in 1987 when the trophy got lost, but was later revived in 2007.

The competition has now been held in the village of Coxheath in Kent.

This has been reported in telegraph.co.uk of dated the 24th September 2012.

The art of throwing custard pies had been perfected by actors like Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin as far back as the 1920s, and, once considered to be a game for men only, it has now been able to attract the fairer sex as well.

The 4-member-team event had competitors from different corners of UK who had come attired in colorful costumes.

The Championship used to, once, attract participants from Japan, Canada, Finland and Germany but that tradition came to an end in 1987 after the trophy was lost and never found.
