A father and son duo took home the annual cricket spitting championship at the Central Wisconsin State Fair this weekend. Brian Johnsrud spat a thawed cricket 22 feet 8 inches to win the adult championship. His son claimed the age 9-to-11 title by shooting his cricket 10 feet 5 inches.
Their key to victory? Brian Johnsrud says to find the biggest cricket available, take a deep breath and then place the insect on your tongue. The rest should take care of itself.
