Bromentous Stupid Mancation of the Month

Ottery St. Mary Flaming Tar Barrels

Let’s get one thing clear, by stupid I mean friggin’ Awesome.  So you get a mob of people together and run through them whilst carrying a burning wooden barrel on your back?  What could possibly go wrong (see Texas A&M homecoming bonfire)?

Of course, like all things British, this custom is nothing new.  It has been a mancation played out for hundreds of years.  It originally was known as barrel “rolling” but over the years those rolling pikers have been replaced by the real men who carry the burning barrels on their backs.
