Tales of Nudists and Onions
World Sport Stacking Association
Have you seen that television commercial for an online service that features a kid stacking and restacking plastic cups into a variety of arrangements in a matter of only seconds? “Sport stacking” actually is an official sport with an official association. In fact, the association’s board of directors voted last year to change the name of the sport from “cup stacking” to “sport stacking.” If you don’t believe me, check out www.worldsportstackingassociation.org. Its logo is an illustration of stacked cups.
National Onion Association
I love the introduction to this association’s Web site (www.onions-usa.org), which simply features a pile of onions with the headline: “Bring on the Onions!” NOA’s goals include hosting onion conventions, monitoring legislative and regulatory issues and, of course, increasing the consumption of onions. By the way, there isn’t a National Halitosis Association.
