Exactly the same as Crufts, but instead of dogs competitors
bring their favourite pet rock. The rocks are assembled,
divided into categories, groomed, and primped. They would be
paraded in various guises, and made to perform tricks to
entertain the audience - like being thrown through hoops,
balanced on heads, dropped on bare toes, rolled down slopes
Speculation and expert commentary laced with appropriate
geological jargon would punctuate the proceedings, with side
displays of boulder maintenance, rock wisdom and unusual
examples of cross breeding. For the finale, their proud owners
would get to dress them up in little coats and dragged them
around on leads in front of expert judges, posing them on
pedestals for detailed inspection.

the overall Petrologic Best in Show?
