The Hash was hosted by Full Moon and Manwhore at their place in Vaigaga. The Scribe is still largely immobile and only got as far the pizza place on the corner. But apparently a fine run had been set by Crime through the streets of Vaitele with a shortcut that no one would have found.
Back at the Bayview Sassygirl BJ stepped in as GM. There were many newbies – Fergal (from Northern Ireland) and Elle who are visiting Slim Shady, Mark and Deirdry the parents of one of the hosts, and Jolan who was a friend of Frid. Thus after the newbies had taken their down down, the following had to step up for not sharing the rules appropriately with their newbies – Manwhore, Da Head, Full Moon, Overstayer and One Infection.
Rethreads were Slim Shady, BB and Swingers brother. Swinger had to step in as shoe inspector, failed, so joined in with a down down. Celebrity Awards went to Slim Shady, One Infection and Lewinsky for stories in the paper entirely unrelated to them but which were found to be close living relatively.
This Day in History Awards went to Manwhore (1956 – Colo, the first gorilla born in captivity), Lewinsky (1979 – first European Ariane rocket is launched), One Infection (1994 – Mexican volcano Popoctepl erupts gases and ash), Lewinsky (1998 Clinton is impeached for lying about Lewinsky).
The GM was quick off the mark in targeting the Scribe for not running, however he was able to do mocking Bollywood moves – Poumuli. The a Lucky Bastard Award went to Fergal for going on his honeymoon with two girls. And he made the men in green proud with this downing.
In honour of the great job the cops are doing in clamping down on drink driving, she gave a Cramping Our Style Award to Godfather. Twin Peaks was dobbed in for getting the names muddled up. Then Wahoo was dobbed in for getting what she wanted – a brand new car. Finally BB got a GM’s Award for leading her astray at Farmer Joe’s.
On the run, Lewinsky told us that Godfather had needed to relieve himself (we were not told if 1’s or 2’s) and had been cheered by the girls. So apparently a challenge of sorts was laid down, with the result that both Godfather and Overstayer got a down down.
Slim Shady had been impressed by the positive messaging from a fellow hash mere espousing all sorts of health and healthy lifestyles issues, only to establish a menagerie of cocktail animals at a recent outing. Sassy got the Health (Not) Guru Award.
Swinger quickly riposted with an accusation that Slim Shady was not giving appropriate cultural briefs for visitors, as Fergal was overheard commenting on Godfather’s lowly patterned shorts! Poumuli then had a Fail for trying to make something out of Sassy’s anniversary. Swinger was successful in getting Crime an award for setting an 8 km run, while Manwhore managed to get back at the whingeing Poms for winning the Ashes – Swinger et frères.
The Hosts and the Hare were saluted. Then Fergal stepped back in to the circle to thank Hash for its hospitality and the common bond of rugby. When Godfather mentioned that Samoans were the Irish of the Pacific we had to get One Infection to join Fergal in a final award. Er, not yet, one more for Overstayer for advertising.
Watch the blog for next week’s run.
Poumuli, IKA Slit
