Just 137 miles east of Black Mesa as the crow flies, or 183 miles as the crow drives, but still in the Panhandle of Oklahoma, is a town called Beaver. Beaver is — did you know this? — the Cow Chip Throwing Capital of the World. It is here in Beaver, Oklahoma, that the World Championship Cow Chip Throw is held each April. It is truly international as “Chippers,” as I like to call them, come from all over the world to hurl. The contest has several mascots. One is King Cow Chip, a cow chip wearing a crown. The more famous Beaver town mascot, Big Beaver, is perched in the downtown area, holding a cow chip, getting his picture taken by thousands of tourists.
