I had a thought the other day that 'waterboarding' sounds more like the name of a sport than the name of a torture. You know… snowboarding, wakeboarding, skateboarding, waterboarding?

That inspired this idea, which is to combine sports with tortures. You try to do as well as you can in a sport while suffering from a torture. For example:

- rowing + scaphism

- basketball + heretic's fork

- hurdles + shrew's fiddle

       Combining sport with torture has already been invented. When sport was invented.

       Spanish donkey racing?

       Thumb-screw wrestling?   

       How about simply competing who tolerates most torture. Like identical waterboarding treatments and last man standing wins. Great spectator sport.

       bobsled + Judas chair   

       Also, thanks to [jutta] (I assume) for moving this to the proper category, which I didn't realize existed.

       This was vaguely reminiscent of The Kitty Olympics <link> except for humans.
