From Fox News. So You Know It's Fair & Balanced - Conservative Female Professionals by Day, Down and Dirty Jell-O Wrestlers by Night - Celebrity Gossip | Entertainment News | Arts And Entertainment: "Conservative female professionals by day, down and dirty Jell-O wrestlers by night. These are the lives of a group of women on New York City's Lower East Side who have taken to the sport of 'amateur female Jell-O wrestling' to release their pent-up aggressions.

The women, who go by pseudonyms such as Sandra Claws, Tinsel the Bohemian Christmas Fairy, Chocolate Thunder and Backhand Betty, gather at a bar to do battle in a blow-up kiddie pool full of clear, unflavored gelatin, Reuters reported.

The 11 female participants swear that the sport is empowering and is not about naked women rolling around for drooling male spectators.

'We work hard to promote it as a feminist thing and the night is really like a community night in that it is really what the women make of it,' said Annie Rock, 26, one of the organizers.

The show, which happens once a month, is completely put together by women, and they agree that the sport is 'fun, friendly competition.'"

There's always room for Jell-O wrestling.
