About 300 competitors consisting of both men and women tried to shove as much as stuff as possible up their noses to win the 18th World Snuff Championships held in Peutenhausen in Germany last weekend. The goal of each contestant is to stuff up to 5 grams of snuff tobacco into his or her nostrils within a minute. Points are given for the amount of snuff consumed and the cleanliness of the snuff site. The person who stuffs the most tobacco and has the cleanest work station wins the competition.
According to experts, not a big nose but intensive training and a sophisticated technique is what is required to be successful.
