Extreme Ironing - What the Heck?

So it is Friday evening, and after a long day, not to mention a long week, I decided to just post lightly today. So for today, I will post about something I found extremely weird yet funny, that is, extreme ironing.

Apparently, extreme ironing is a sport. It is one of the latest extreme sports to surface on the face of this planet. And guess what? Even the March 2008 issue of National Geographic Traveler features it.

They have an official website. According to the website, this is the latest danger sport that combines the thrills of an extreme outdoor activity with the satisfaction of a well pressed shirt. I don't know if I'll be interested in that.

Anyway, you can search the web for pictures of people doing this stuff. And to make your life easier, here's a video of some of them.

So, tell me what you think. Sport or no?
