The Hash was hosted by Transporter at Seyleck Motors in Vaitele, although it seems largely to have been taken over by one of Chicken Shit’s operations. Still a bit of a vehicle morgue, but we couldn’t complain due to his last minute generosity. The run had been set by Crime, and largely followed a huge square around the Vaitele area, with a bit of in and out for obvious false trails. Your Scribe had to duck out due to hip pains, so that is all that can be reported. Godfather’s sweet nuts were ever-welcomed.
POD as GM called the circle to order. There were no newbies to Hash, but Poumuli got it wrong and accused Sean – first down. The retreads were Sean, Sassygirl BJ, Meg, Chicken Shit, with Strap On joining for a false accusation and David for cellphonus interruptus. Black Swan was appointed Shoe Inspector but failed.
Celebrity Awards were given to Godfather (in the paper), David (no Hasher appeared in the coverage of the US 4th July event), Chicken Shit (in the paper) and Eveready (Karaoke and his brother were in the paper).
This Day in History Awards went to Lewinsky (1910 – In his book Clinical Psychiatry, Emil Kraepelin gives a name to Alzheimer's disease, naming it after his best mate and colleague Alois Alzheimer), Gayboy (1938 – Douglas Corrigan takes off from Brooklyn to fly the "wrong way" to Ireland and becomes known as "Wrong Way" Corrigan), Eveready for Crash Bandicoot (Feast Day of St Francis) and Godfather for International Firgun Day (to make someone feel good about accomplishments).
Turning to the GM’s awards, first up was Wahoo for her fashion show performance, including the near topless starting lineup. Godfather said he was proud of her!
The GM turned to Transporter and pithily enquired if he had forgotten Hash Rules while absent so long, no he hadn’t, so how come you are leaning? Down down. She then congratulated the Oz Hashers for finally getting a PM – Black Swan, Meg, Nettie – and added in a respectable measure for the horrible 60 Minutes coverage of Samoa. Poumuli tried to get Lewinsky included in this, given the description of Samoa as “hell on earth”, but instead Sean and Gayboy were dobbed in for chitchatting.
Turning to the ongoing debacle of the Hash BBQ, there were some interesting theories floated – was it the Poutasi air, or was it just regular old like Poumuli or was it OTR? A vote gave all the theories support, so Godfather, Sassy, Transporter and Poumuli took a BBQ Award.
The GM had gone to pick up Crime to also get the paper for the trail, and had been disrespected by David who had asked who POD was? Poumuli noted that this had almost been a Full Moon Hash, and since none had done that tradition, suggested that it be awarded to the Hasher with the most moonlike visage, namely Lewinsky!
There was a lot more going on, but some of the final ones related to non-interference with the BBQ process (Sassy, Il Capo, David, Strap On and Lewinsky), and Gayboy nominating Poumuli for apparently disappearing during the fashion show (he was in the VIP lounge, not the riff-raff lounge) and Strap On watching Bill defend Hillary against Trump (Lewinsky).
The Host and Hare, Transporter and Crime were saluted, after which we ate the lovely BBQ.
Next week’s Hash at Nafanua, and we need a Scribe.
Poumuli, IKA Slit
