Photo gallery: Germans compete in Finger Wrestling Championships


WARNGAU, Germany (AP) - Giving your opponent the finger just took on a whole new meaning.

On Sunday, over 150 men in the Bavarian village of Warngau, took part in the German Finger Wrestling Championship.

The aim of the game - also known as Fingerhakeln - is to pull their opponents over the table with nothing more than their fingers and a rubber strap.
