Sabuwona from Durban, where your Scribe is hanging out. Hash Trash from Spanky below, which still needs more spell-checking.
Poumuli, IKA Slit
Hosts: Top Shelf, Thong Hunter, Bungabunga with special thanks to the Y Not crew for providing the great venue
Theme: 16 Days of Activism to End Violence Against Women – The UN Women are in the middle of a 16 days of events to increase awareness and end violence against women. All the Hash runners were provided with t-shirts from UN.
What a great hash – there were two runs! The hosts set a run on paper but GM forgot and asked Dumass to set one on flour too! Flour was longer so the walkers took the paper and it was enjoyed by all.
The new runners this week were Bronwyn, Lucas, Pauline and Tim and Claire, who accidentally came because paddling was cancelled. Welcome!
Retreads were Bungabunga (too busy having bungabunga parties and getting kicked out of power), CB and DMT (they were both “working”), Bubsy (“studying” in NZ), and Lily and Rachel (been on Savaii).
New Boots: Eveready had new shoes! As he went to drink, Zsa Zsa said what were all thinking – “those are huge!”
Celebrity Awards: Marta was on TV, Niner is on the back page of the new Samoa Tourist Guidebook, Sassy was in the Observer – Again! – maybe will be renamed Sassy Observer. And finally for the best article ever – Double H was featured in an article called “Simply Creamy Goodness.”
GM Awards: TLC award to snake who took time off work to make the BBQ look like new. Piggy Back award to Mike who came back on the run to carry his wife across the water, “she’s always on my back!” Best P Party costume awards were for Porn Star CB and Pirate Chili. Dumass and Bubsy who took their dog on the run. Birthday downdown for Crash who is 31! Final GM award is for a bank man who travels a lot and came back to a bank function where his wife got crabs! (She was sitting at the party and a crab walked up between her legs!)
Lily the librarian found a nice kids book called pirate princess! It’s pages were stuck together but… our own Pirate Princess took her downdown.
Sassy Girl – who was dearly missed last week when there were so few nominations – was back in full force! First award was miscommunication award for the hosts – Lily and Rachel were the hosts and hares, but Dumass also set a run! Rachel dobbed in Spanky as the hareraiser. Spanky reminded GM that she told him the run was taken care of but GM was not in a good mood. Double for Spanky!
Tally Ho nominated the frontrunning bastards for not stopping at the Xs, but then it turns out Tally Ho was one of them! Backfired.
Sassy nominated Godfather for bringing friends but not preparing them – they had to run in sandals! Dumass added that CB also came without shoes! CB said it’s not his fault because his girl was supposed to pack them and forgot. I have yet to hear of anything ever that IS CB’s fault, but apparently DMY agreed to take the blame yet again on this one.
Random guy in black shirt was also dobbed in because we don’t know who he is but he didn’t come up for newbies and didn’t come for retreads. Who are you?
Tally Ho was upset that Vaivai made his nomination backfire, so he came up with another nomination. Something about frontrunning or something but hard to tell with the way Tally Ho talks.
Mr Whippy is on his way out again for an extended break away from Samoa after coming for only two weeks. He hosted a great Thanksgiving Hash last week and took his time with his downdown to give a farewell speech. He commented on how special Apia Hash is and that there is nowhere else like it in the world that he has seen. He remembered his first times at Apia Hash, when some of the older members took their time to welcome him and introduce him to the way it works, if anyone is interested you can read more about how Apia Hash works on the blog. Not one to let something nice be the last note, SOTB made Mr Whippy’s award a double for FBI.
Then the Monk Came! She heard about two girls who had been causing lots of trouble on Savaii for the last two years. She called up Lily and Rachel to assume the position. For Lily the librarian, who is very short but like to reach up high and read Samoan boys, will forever now be known as TOP SHELF. For Rachel, the Monk hears she goes running around her village wearing shortshorts and sometimes a thong – she says she runs for exercise but we hear she’s just running to check out prospective prey. She will forever now be known as THONG HUNTER. Downdown for the monk for making the trip!
Discrimination Award for the owner of a bar that offers happy hour specials on all drinks except Margaritas! How rude!
Maybe from Mr Whippy’s comments about introducing new members to Hash, Tally Ho recommends we do the hash anthem and a rousing version of it followed!
The Cake came out for Crash’s birthday – a delicious chocolate rum cake with a hula dancer. It was rectangular and CB was disappointed it wasn’t in the shape of goodies. Karaoke says Crash is a goodygoody so he doesn’t need a goody cake.
This week American Samoa not only scored their first soccer goal ever in a FIFA match, but they even won their first match ever against Toga! They were ranked dead last in the FIFA rankings but the coach hopes they will move up to be ranked in the top hundred. Wacko from AmSam took the downdown to represent. Wacko later shared with me that AmSam lost their game against the Cook Islands because one of their players scored a goal for the opposing team… good thing we didn’t know this at the time or it would have been a double!
Party foul - Niner scraped her knee on Friday night and continued to mope in the corner all night and refused to enjoy girls night! Boo. Titty G almost accidentally nominated herself for a blonde award but it ended up with Bubsy for taking the car keys but not the car.
Lastly, GM got nominated by Sassy Girl for withholding Greeny’s t-shirt money. Then GM got nominated by Sula via Sassy Girl for promising to sponsor her dance group but then not following through!
Big thank you to hosts and hares – all of them!
