Salad toss!

Saturday, February 10th, 2001 - 12:29 pm PST

The Rev. Brendan Powell Smith was in Finland today to officiate the 93rd annual Salad Toss festivities in Helsinki. Hundreds of contestants from all across Scandinavia were drawn to the event in which Børjiik Öråg was widely expected to trounce his own 1974 world record of 27.18 decameters.  Tragically a last minute shaving accident kept Öråg out of the competition.  Rumors of foul play abound.
