The hare for the run was I Choked Linda Lovelace, with Sexy Eyes taking good care of the walkers. The walk report was given by CL who loved it. She experienced the best company and interesting conversation with beautiful scenery and plenty of shade. However there were dangerous ants which attacked Mr Purple a very scary farmer who chased us off his land scary. She gave a score of 5. The run report was given by Tutsi Robinson who had come expecting rain wet shoes and instead found a dry, varied trail with plenty of soggy paper. As a race director he score from 5 to 45 so gave this trial a 37 km score. Additional comments were given by the visitor Cheap Date. She had not known what to expect but found that there was a lack of cows but a preponderance of dogs. She agreed that it was shaded and picturesque and gave a score of 8.5 making the overall score of 25.25.
The virgin this week was Joel from the UK who came using Trip Adviser and had an amazing time. The visiting Hashers were Cheap Date and Loan Shark hoes home Hash is Ulaanbaatar and who are currently running in Phnom Penh, they also used the Internet to help them come.
As it was Mothers day the mothers were all called into the circle and given chocolate.
I Choked Linda Lovelace was them called in and recognised for reaching the amazing milestone of 200 runs and 20 hare sets.
Broken Seal was then charged as he doesn't want to get his shoes wet or muddy because he runs in his work shoes. Now who would do a ridiculous thing like that, obviously a PE teacher.
The Buddhists, and failing that those who were Buddhist enough, were then called in as it is was Buddha’s birthday weekend. A ritual involving incense and water should be used to clean the mind at this time. We would have needed a lot of water is do this properly on the Hash.
The Cambodian Hashers were then called in to be interrogated by Spandex Man. He had been on the Phnom Penh hash the previous week and did not recognise either of them. They claimed that this was because their Religious Adviser had performed a successful rain dance and so they had decided to stay at home. Obviously fair weather Hashers unlike all the Saigon Hashers!
The Dutch were then charged with restricting the rights of tourists. They are putting barricades around their tulip fields to stop the tourist s trampling all over the tulips in search of the perfect selfie. Don't they realise that if you don't have a selfie of it it isn't real!
The English were then charged. The Dutch police caught an English Criminal and planned to send him back to England. However research by the Dutch judge revealed that conditions in English prisons were so bad that the Dutch were unable to send him back without infringing his human rights. Maybe the English just need to start exporting their criminals, it worked pretty well in the past.
The behaviour of the French was then discussed. In a recent study it was found that of all the nations they spend the most time eating and drinking, 2 h 30 min per day on average. Obviously there were no French Hashers to charge as they were all too busy eating and drinking.
Tug Muay Dong was charged. Not only did he turn up late for the bus, he also spend most of the run with his ear pressed to the mobile sorting out Vietnam's banking sector. There was only one thing for it: ice, ice baby.
Finally I choked Linda Lovelace and The Tickler were charged, although they were allegedly on the run Spandex Man didn't see them at any point on the trail. It does have to be mentioned that the Tickler was very well camouflaged as usual, although I Choked Linda Lovelace was far more colourful.
The On On was held at the Hash Bar InSaigong.
That's all for this week.
Sexy Eyes signing off.
