Halloween Hash Trash

Halloween Hash Trash- 27-10-08

The Halloween hash run turned out to be quite a night to remember. From the outrageous costumes to the numerous down downs, to the hash Monk turning up and even a naming ceremony. This run had it all!

Pussy snapper obviously set out early to set the run, and just the thought of him setting the run must have turned away our usual runners. It was an abysmal turnout of runners. From memory, and I’m trying very hard to remember what happened last night, only 5 runners completed the run!
It was a good run with a mix of road, dirt, bush, and mountains…Some hashers found it tough treading through the jungle as God Father tried to live up to his Halloween character which was a ghost and took a heavy spill heading downhill through the jungle. I think he was trying to fly down and take a short cut.

There were some interesting characters at the Halloween has run, from Robin Hood, and his Princess, to Pirates, army men, fairy’s, hares, and even a sailor! (skananavian, living up to her hash name) and Zoro and his fair lady were present too…

The GM had his share of fun punishing the hashers with Down Downs. Tony Blair took one for trying to make the GM look silly in his costume by offering him a light saber as his sword..Ive never seen Zorro with a light Saber..and it makes me wonder why TB has a light saber to start with.
SOTB and Poumuli copped a down down each for wearing a “uniform” rather than a costume…as did those that did not wear any costumes. BB got a down down for lying to the GM, saying she did the run with Godfather when she was never seen on the run to start with..sneaky sneaky..
TB got another down down for false information..
At the end of the awards, the Hash Judges for the best dressed came with their results. First was Tony Blair and Selena, (Robin hood and his Princess) second was Zorro and his fair lady, and Third was BB, dressed as Cat Woman (Like Halle Berry, except with out the “Berry”..nice call AC/DC)

The Hash Monk also made a brief appearance where COT’s new half helped co-host the run. He was given a very appropriate hash name, considering he is a sea man, loves the ocean, loves sea creatures, and from what the Hash Monk was told, there was some fun over the weekend…He was therefore named kui kui..which for those of you who don’t know what it is…it’s a sea urchin, and when you translate that into English, it means pokey pokey..apparently something else that he likes…

There was a great spread put on for the hash mob, so big thanks to Crown of Thorns, Kui Kui, and new flat mate Alex for a great Halloween Run. For those of you that did not turn up or did not wear a costume, you have next weeks run to redeem yourselves by wearing a nice big Melbourne Cup Day run HAT!..those that do not will feel the wrath of the GM…

PROXY nomination for Mr Celebrity

Hash spies have noted a certain Hasher making a brief appearance on national TV in Australia last week. Appearing as the usual monkey that he is, he was climbing a coconut tree to impress host, Catrina Roundtree. Allegedly, "Getaway is Australia's longest-running and most popular holiday and travel program", that would have been watch by over a million Aussies last week.

Full video can be view here.

Hash Joke 10-10-08

Hey Folks, here's something to make you laugh before the long weekend.

It's Saturday morning and Bob's just about to set off on a round of golf, when he realizes that he forgot to tell his wife that the guy who fixes the washing machine is coming around at noon. So Bob heads back to the clubhouse and phones home.

"Hello?" says a little girl's voice.

"Hi, honey, it's Daddy," says Bob. "Is Mommy near the phone?"

"No, Daddy. She's upstairs in the bedroom with Uncle Frank."

After a brief pause, Bob says, "But you haven't got an Uncle Frank, honey!"

"Yes, I do, and he's upstairs in the bedroom with Mommy!"

"Okay, then. Here's what I want you do. Put down the phone, run upstairs and knock on the bedroom door and shout in to Mommy and Uncle Frank that my car's just pulled up outside the house."

"Okay, Daddy!" A few minutes later, the little girl comes back to the phone. "Well, I did what you said, Daddy."

"And what happened?"

"Well, Mommy jumped out of bed with no clothes on and ran around screaming, then she tripped over the rug and went out the front window and now she's all dead."

"Oh, my God! What about Uncle Frank?"

"He jumped out of bed with no clothes on too, and he was all scared and he jumped out the back window into the swimming pool. But he must have forgot that last week you took out all the water to clean it, so he hit the bottom of the swimming pool and now he's dead too."

There is a long pause.

"Swimming pool? Is this 854-7039?"

Resolution Arrives in NOV / Will Miss Monday Runs

It appears that the Resolution will miss the Monday Hash Runs on her trip to Samoa next month. She's scheduled for two Thu - Sun stays in Apia: Nov 6-9 and Nov 20-23. Here's the update we received from Flea on the HMNZS Resolution:

Hi, Sorry about the delay, the ship has been having trouble with her Email system. We will be in Apia Nov 6-9th and again 20-23rd. As yet I am not sure what commitments the ship requires of us. As far as I know I am the only hasher onboard, but have asked for an expression of interest to see who may come out of the woodwork as a potential newbee. Flea.

'Given the response to the initial announcement, am sure Mismanagement and the Hash Meres will look for ways to hook-up with the crew. We will keep you posted.

Wrath of the Hash Monk, Run 1433 - 29 SEP 08

It was raining Monday afternoon. Fortunately, there was only a light rain before and during the run. This scared away a number of Hashers (pansies). But the diehards were there. Even more, we had Tramp and Woman in Black visiting from Rome. It was great to see them. More, Einstein returned to enjoy the night too… but I'm getting ahead of myself.

The run was a classic jungle crawl. A fair number of falsies early in the run threw the leaders off-track. One of them took us nearly 10 minutes to figure out. Thankfully, Underrated and Snake found the sneaky paper hidden off the road in the bush. From there we entered a big cow pasture. And yes, with the rain, we soon found ourselves ankle deep in you know what. Thank goodness there were no new boots! We did the traditional crawl, trudged through the mud and cow pies, climbed over some rocks, and went along and under some barbed wired fences. Richard did a ninja dive during the run. Not to be left-out, Woman in Black did a super ninja roll too while diving through a fence! But all good things must come to an end. It was getting dark, and the Grandmaster ordered the troops to head home. On the way home, the rain hit. By the time we were back, we were wet rats. After toweling off, we grabbed some nuts, and started hitting the keg.

Things got a bit cozy. We all tucked into the garage as the rain poured. The keg was great - an excellent brew. Many of us were spending time catching-up with Tramp, Woman in Black, and Einstein before the awards. AC/DC hit the BBQ. Tony Blair got the mugs ready. Mr. Whippy poured the beers. The hosts for tonight Bits & Pieces, Goer, and their daughter (spaced the name!) were well prepared and doing all the little things you do when you host a run.

Well, after a good social, it was time for the Hash Circle. The GM dished-out the standard awards for Retreads and what not. He had a long list. It's safe to say, that everyone in the circle got hit. But that was not enough. The Hash Monk stormed the circle with a flash of orange smoke. After recovering from the choking smoke, the circle resumed. The Monk called out Bits & Pieces and Goer's daughter for naming. The monk covered her hair with the flour, some beer, and who knows what. He also prepared some strange orange liquor concoction. He handed the Hash mere a glass, announced that she will hereby be known as Blooming Luscious, we sang, and Blooming Luscious tried to drink the wicked brew. Several Hashers tried to help. After a sip each, they handed the glass to other brave/stupid Hashers to help. The Monk then went after many, Snake for being Snake, Mr. Whippy a double for blogging about the Monk (who thankfully had Tramp help for the save), and Eveready and Fang (for ???). In between, the mad Monk was taking shots of his own brew! In case you haven't guessed it yet, this brew was killer. At this point your poor substitute for a scribe, Mr. Whippy was too liquored-up to remember the details; just vaguely remember the inability to say "statistics," and repeatedly trying to knock over an empty bucket.

It was a great Hash. The Hash Monk was mean. The run was tough. The beer was cold. And the company was great. Check out the run's photos in our Hash Photo Albums.

On On! Mr. Whippy.
