CEPIN, CROATIA -- One of the benefits of doing this job is finding out about stuff you couldn't make up. For example, in Croatia, a contest for painters.

The fourth annual "Wallpainters Walking on Ladders" features four different categories: fast walking, hurdles, slalom and walking on a ladder with a bucket full of water.

One extra rule this year: you can not walk under the influence.

Competitors said for experienced wallpainters there is no fear of falling. They claim, "a wallpainter always lands on his feet just like a cat."

The winner got a cabbage and a bottle of vegetable oil.
