Cow Chip tossing day actually may have started in Wisconsin. Since then though it seems that tossing cow chips has really caught on. August 31st is the day to celebrate this sporting event. Tossing cow chips has become a contest as popular as watermelon seed spitting. While contest like the biggest bubble is a lot cleaner the cow chip contest may draw more attention. In a local town the week long festival also included cow chip tossing until those in charge agreed that the mess that was made was more than anyone wanted to deal with. After the contest was all these little pieces of chips that had dropped all over the place during the tossing. If you are like those who like attention but don't care for the mess left behind perhaps you would rather make some goodies
