Food fight!

YouTube - Animal House - Food Fight

Not only allowed, but encouraged!

From Ivrea, Italy: The Annual Battle of the Oranges. This event involves people throwing oranges at each other to symbolize rebellion. It apparently represents a time in history when local rebels rose up and overthrew a tyrant by tossing rocks at his soldiers.

For the festival, the town dresses in battle garb and splits up into nine teams. Then they spend three full days throwing a half-million pounds of oranges at each other!

The event is officially the largest food fight in Europe.

Watch the classic "Animal House" food fight bit here.
