5 of the Weirdest Hobbies Of All Time

With New Year’s Eve just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about some personal resolutions for next year! One of the most common New Year’s resolutions is taking up a new hobby, so to give you some inspiration, here’s a list of the five weirdest hobbies of all time!

 

Competitive Mooing

Competitive mooing contests are actually held all over the world, mostly in rural towns where dairy is a big part of the agricultural community. During these competitive mooing contests, grown individuals go up to a microphone, moo in it, and an audience decides who sounds most like an actual cow. The video above should be enough to convince you that yes, this is real, and yes, it is natural for you to now want to moo out loud to see how your own moo fares against these professionals.

Extreme ironing is exactly what you think it is, and it started in England. Extreme ironing daredevils take their ironing boards and wrinkled laundry on hiking, climbing, skydiving and other extreme outdoor adventures to remote locations. According to the Extreme Ironing Bureau, extreme ironing is “the latest danger sport that combines the thrills of an extreme outdoor activity with the satisfaction of a well-pressed shirt”.

 

Collecting Naval Fluff

The prize for grossest hobby of all time goes to a man named Graham Barker, who has collected and jarred up his own navel fluff since 1984. He has a Guinness World Record for collecting his naval fluff for over 20 years, and keeps all of his fluff organized in labeled jars. Excuse me while I actually go vomit and ask God why?.

A hobby called “Giant Pumpkin Kayaking” consists of hollowing out a giant pumpkin so it can float, getting inside, and using it as a kayak to paddle across a body of water. The hobby started in Canada, but today dozens of Pumpkin Regattas are hosted all around the US too.

 

Canine Freestyle Dancing

As demonstrated by the iconic duo above, Canine Freestyle dancing is a choreographed performance owners do with their dogs at Canine Freestyle dancing competitions. The Canine Freestyle Federation website describes the hobby as “illustrating the training and joyful relationship of a dog and handler team”. This hobby also started in Canada, but has since spread around the world because who doesn’t want to do a choreographed dance with their dog?!
