    Hybrid Animal Sound Design Contest: "Crowangutan" by Bob Bell

    Collins Has Passed Out

    This is my entry for Pro Sound Effects' Rare Animal Olympic competition, the rules of which can be found here http://www.prosoundeffects.com/rare-animal-sound-effects-olympics.html
    I chose to attempt option 3: Pick your favorite Summer Olympics event to recreate as a Rare Animals Contest, and seeing as I eat, sleep and breathe Hammer Throwing, it seemed an obvious choice to attempt and put my own spin on it, if you'll pardon the pun.
    Soooo, what you're hearing was/is recorded live [via Amstrads' soon to be released 'Time Dial8 Audio' device] during the 2052 Olympics as Englands Brian 'The Tosser' Derricot attempts his final throw of the day.

    History of The Cow Hammer:
    Introduced in the 2044 Olympics and being made a legal sport only in 2036, The Cow Hammer is a variation on traditional Hammer Throwing which sees a live cow being spun 1080 degrees clockwise before its release down a concrete runway.
    Thanks to advancement in genetic technology, as well as a general disregard of any rules and regulations used to shape earlier Olympic events, contenders have mechanised arms fitted as standard and are around 8 times the size of the average human being.

    Rules:
    Points are awarded for pre-throw spin, throw-finesse, distance, height and cow-bounce, the latter 3 being the more important as whilst height may equal bounce, distance can provide slide so a perfect combination of the two ensures that the cow will hopefully, at the right moment, burst it's milky guts everywhere so as to provide a lubricant to slide itself empty as points may be deducted if the majority of the cows insides remain in its body.
    Oh, and distance is measured between the cows point of release and it's furthest found fragment.
