A new sport popular with drunken youths is taking The Netherlands by storm: Smart car tossing.
The sport involves several people picking up the small, two door Smart cars and throwing them into the nearest Amsterdam canal. Reports weren’t clear on the scoring method for the sport, although speed and height of throw might be counted.
Local police aren’t very fond of Smart tossing, and until now have not spoken about the sport in case the publicity drove an increase in participants.
One report notes that Smart tossers who can’t find a Smart handy have turned to tossing other small vehicles and scooters into canals instead.
Given the popularity of small cars in the United States, Smart Tossing is unlikely to spread across the Atlantic.
