There was a plethora of hares for this run with Broken Seal and Down Easy trying to mislead the runners whilst Amy and Creamy Tulips took care of the walkers. The walk report was given by Wisecrack who was pleased that the pace stretched the walkers but felt that it was unnecessary for the hare to tread on a dead duck releasing noxious fumes. She was amused but not so impressed when the hares led her into quicksand forcing her to take a swim to clean off. She awarded the walk a total of 5. The run report was given by Chatroom Pedophile who stated that the trail was 10 out of 10. Very varied with mountains, cliffs, rivers, quicksand, shiggy and water crossings. However he had to deduct points for the lack of a beer stop, the windy tracks that never seemed to go in a straight line and the failure to put a cross when deliberately misleading the front runners giving a score of 7 which made the overall score 6.
The virgins for this run were all from Vietnam. They were Quan who came with Dung, and Linh, Jenny and Tina who all came with Broken Seal, he has been a busy boy this week. The Visitors were Clio and Chatroom Pedophile from the USA. The returnees were Spackle, Wisecrack, Tom and Sariah.
Tug Muay Dong was then called into the circle, presented with a cake made by Creamy Tulips and beautifully serenaded in honour of his birthday.
Drives Me Nuts was then iced for living up to his name and driving the whole hash nuts by making the bus wait for him.
The Vietnamese men were then charged for unbelievable bravery in the face of all odds. On the route to the A point a motorbike driving the wrong way on the main road had decided to play chicken with the bus and had won!
The police were then charged for interfering with the GM. He had been innocently driving along, stopped in the left lane at the traffic lights, continued when they turned green and got pulled over for not turning left. The policeman asked for 7 million, then 5 million and when Fukcoffee said he didn’t have enough he suggested a trip to the ATM. Finally he took Fukcoffees wallet but luckily Sloe Gin had been there first so he could only find 500,00 vnd.
Chatroom Pedophile was then charged with being a slow learner, he insisted on calling “Trail” whilst everyone else was calling “On On”.
American men were then charged with allowing sensationalism to overcome sense. These days a simple proposal does not seem to be enough the event needs to be elaborate enough to become an Internet sensation. In a recent example of this a man sat his girlfriend down at an underwater restaurant , swam down to where she could see him through the glass, proposed to her and then drowned. Hopefully in the future men will refrain from such antics.
Next the Australians were charged with backtracking. Pauline Hanson has attempted to climb Uluru to show that Indigenous people that she can and protest their protest to keep tourists away from this sacred site. Luckily it turns out she can’t climb it, she can however get stuck half way and then make a spectacle of herself coming down.
Finally the Vietnamese were charged with reckless endangerment. This week a Vietnam Airlines pilot forgot that you need landing gear to land, 50 m from the ground he had to be told by air traffic control at Melbourne to abort and go around, resulting in a possible total ban of Vietnam Airlines from Australia but luckily averting a crash. He was obviously modelling himself after the Condor airline pilot who decided to spill coffee on his dash because he couldn't be bothered to fly all the way to Mexico and thought that Ireland would be a good alternative.
Then it was time for Sariah and Amy to be named. After much mass debating Low Maintenance and Barking Mad were initiated into the Saigon Hash in the traditional manner.
The On On was held at The Wreck which was a strangely suitable name.
That's all for this week.
Sexy Eyes signing off.
