D.C.’s all-ladies arm-wrestling league does not mess around. [WaTimes]

Amid the sweaty palms, gritted teeth and clenched biceps of the Washington D.C. Lady Arm Wrestlers league, one rule ranks above all others: the one-butt-cheek rule.

A wrestler should keep her feet firmly planted on the floor and her elbow cannot leave the table, but it’s the space between the chair and one’s derriere that determines a fair fight.

Lady Arm Wrestlers league event. The arm-wrestling competitions raise money for charity. (Barbara L. Salisbury/The Washington Times)
