Picture This: Take That!


It is hardly a secret that the Spanish have some of the weirdest folk festivals out there. They jump over babies, run through fire, go jogging with enraged bulls and stage a gigantic tomato fight. And then there is the traditional "Els Enfarinats" battle in Alicante in eastern Spain. Every year for the last 200 years or so, locals stage a battle for power using eggs and flour. Afterwards, presumably, they add sugar and water and hope for some really hot weather.
