SAN CLEMENTE (Reuters) - It started as an April Fool's joke, but Dr. Ralph's proposal to hold the world's biggest strip poker contest will become reality next month.
Dr. Ralph floated the idea as a joke but it generated so much interest, and hundreds of requests to take part, that the San Clemente-based doctor decided to organize a contest.
So next month, 200 poker buffs will risk baring all in an attempt to become the first World Strip Poker Champion, and earn a place in the Guinness Book of Records.
The winner will also receive a "Golden Fig Leaf" trophy plus $20,000 in cash.
"This will be the most fun you can have with your clothes on -- or off!" Dr. Ralph said in a statement for the tournament, which will be held in San Clemente on August 19.
