The Hash was hosted by Witch Doctor and Black Pussy at Nafanua Steakhouse. Crime had been bribed into setting the run. It was a rather hot day in town, but as the trail turned into the back roads, most of us were melting freely. We ran through the fire station parking lot and they were helpfully testing their water cannon as well as washing down a parked fire-truck. Several hashers got the French riot treatment. We turned right on the first back road, then left again at Pinatis. On we slogged in the wet and humid and sweaty and dripping heat, passing the original Sunrise Restaurant, purveyors of fine sweet and sour cat, then another right and left again on the clocktower road up to the airport road. From thence we shall judge the quicken and sweaty, as the trail then led up to Rokos, and off over to the Cross Island Road. The human hashers ran straight back from there, while the super-wenches ran over to the UN and then back along Beach Road. Oh lord those nuts tasted sweet.
Nelson was dobbed in as GM to a sitting circle. There were no newbies, but the retreads were Slim Shady, Nelson and Black Pussy. Screamer was appointed Shoe Inspector, and Godfather brought forth his new work shoes on the off chance that he may need to use them for Hash. Screamer joined him for her efficient persuasion in convincing Titty Galore for giving up the goods on Godfather.
This day in History Awards went to Titty Galore (1692 – Sarah Good, Sarah Osborne and Tituba are brought before local magistrates in Salem Village, Massachusetts, beginning what would become known as the Salem witch trials), Poumuli for Yahoo (1995 – Yahoo! is incorporated), Lewinsky (for his godfather - 2003 – The International Criminal Court holds its inaugural session in The Hague), Il Capo (2010 – Unknown criminals pour more than 2.5 million liters of diesel oil and other hydrocarbons into the river Lambro, in northern Italy, sparking an environmental disaster), POD (Feast Day of St Isabelle), Slim Shady (International Anosmia Awareness Day) and Witch Doctor (International Polar Bear Day).
Celebrity Awards went to Godfather (photo in the paper with FLO). Snatched had also been in the paper, but was not present, so since it was for a code of ethics Crime took the award.
The GM opened for his awards, noting that we can all look after our parents and for some reason straying into Brooklyn teenage girls shopping, where apparently a shop called Screaming Mimis had been the haberdasher of choice for Slim Shady.
The GM asked Witch Doctor to step forward to show off Black Pussy’s shirt that she was wearing, noting that there was a white triangle where the mimi should be. They both took this award as Poumuli explained the reaction of the Moroccan print shop to his request for the embossment.
Opening up for nominations, Poumuli nominated Godfather for the Safety Conscious Award for putting on the child safety locks while Titty Galore was in the back seat. Frances stepped in and showed everyone the programme for the Disability Forum, at which she had been told by Poumuli that he would be a speaker. But he was not in the program, yet bullied his way onto the panel and nearly made the moderator cry. In his defence he stated that he thought the lady was deaf and not blind, hence his loud voice, which made it a double.
Speedhumper was then called forth by the GM for causing so much distress in the Tauese area with her stretching mimi exercises. She then demonstrated.
Slim Shady had been concerned for the well being of Lewinsky after the run, to the point of giving him cold compresses and sweet nothings, and gave him the Don’t Die Before The Wife Returns Award.
He also had a Gorgeous Snobs Award (your Scribe had this down as Knobs initially), which went to Titty Galore for only wanting the VIP seats at the circus, and Slim Shady for refusing to frequent Sienna’s due to the faeces on the toilet walls. She noted that she had already invited the National Geographic Channel for a tour there.
POD gave a Commiseration Award to Peeping Clam, who was so bored without Noms that she went for a run by herself on Sunday morning. Nelson then tried to get a down down for Lewinsky for his performance at the Sinalei Beach Bash, not knowing that this had been awarded last week, but nevertheless POD scored one for not keeping Lewinsky stiff.
Crime had been our Hare, but was deeply unhappy about the Taula that was on tap, as was your Scribe, so he was given a Grumpy Award which went down at the usual speed. We thanked Nelson as our GM for the evening, and saluted the hosts and hare. Mr Whippy got one for not getting one. We also sang the Hash Anthem for Frances and Slippery who are going back to Tonga to wear black for a year.
Witch Doctor then invited us for a feast of meatballs, pasta, chicken, and schnitzel, as well as the multi-coloured sausages from Speedhumper.
Next week will be hosted by Poumuli, Wahoo and Yahoo at Vaoala.
Poumuli, IKA Slit
