America - Did you know?Cherry Pit Spitting - Michigan - 2016 will be the 43rd year of the International Cherry Pit Spitting Championship, held at the Tree-Mendus Fruit Farm in Michigan. It’s simple – eat the cherry and spit the pip as far as you can. Contestants aren 't allowed to 'pop' their cheeks with their hands, and no foreign objects or props are allowed. The record is an impressive 93.5 feet (28.5m); apparently, it is all about curling the tongue.
