Sumo Wrestling, French Style
This has got to be one of the funniest things I’ve seen in France.
In a country of wine and romance, the French get a kick out of donning plastic, inflated sumo suits and wrestling a similarly clad competitor to the ground.
Apparently this game is similar to our American inflatable bounce gyms that show up at birthday parties and festivals. Yes, someone owns these sumo suits and rents them out, along with helmets and the plastic mat.
The game is popular with old and young, male and female. The kids love it, but the adults were fighting for their turns, too.
