This actually sounds like a neat past-time. Depending on what's in the bowl...of course.

Nice try. Definitely isn't a mushroom. Here are some more pictures on web pages:

There's even a comment along the lines of "The foreign tourist is really getting into it."

Extra points if you can spot the demon version of the female equivalent (hint: it is a painting in the second link).

I have always meant to go to this festival, and this year I just might have to!

A while back I read Wal-Mart had to discontinue some of its team-building, pep-rally type activities in Germany because the employees just weren't having it. Seems the German workers felt asking adults to jump around and shout silly slogans was stupid, childish brain-washing. Good for them!
