- HAS SPORT GONE UP IN SMOKE?
Clearing the Bong may soon become an Olympic sport. With a Dutchman
now as president of the Emergent Olympics Association, the influence
is there - if not yet the political will. However, the EOA has made
some maverick choices in the past and Clearing the Bong stands a
good chance of receiving the popular vote on the ground.
Clearing The Bong is one of the fastest growing sports in Europe
and Asia. Four or more competitors sit cross legged in a circle
and each takes a turn at Clearing the Bong. The winner is the one
who successfully Clears The Bong.

The sport is divided in weight classes, similar to boxing.
Lightweights use a small 50cm Bong, middleweights contend with the
extended 80cm Bong and heavyweights will attempt to clear the 1.5m
Big Bong. Super Heavyweight, however, is the blue chip of serious
Bong Clearing: competitors take on the The Magic Funnel: a 2.2m
high, glass-bowled ceramic bong with an active memory loss agent
present in the chamber.
The current European Champion, James "Mr Composure" Young,
says the time has come for Clearing the Bong to get overground status.
"The days of sitting about somebody's room or doing this at
a festival are over. You really want to see this in stadiums."
Paul Pirie runs the Ba-Da-Bong Festival in Baden-Baden, Germany.
"What began as a two day music festival became simply a huge
gathering of people with bongs", said Pirie. "One year
we realised that we hadn't booked any bands - and that we hadn't
actually had any bands there for the last two years. Nobody was
all that bothered. It was then we started seeing the potential."
