HPV & Spicy were the hares, Puppy was the FRB, P-thag? was the FBI and Kitty Litter won the Brainless Award.
Count Back-To stop, turn
around, and count back the number of plops dictated by a chalk mark noting the
letters CB followed by a number. My mistake and a common one is to stop as soon
as you see people running back and just assume that they know where they are
going. You think "Oh yes I can stop running!" and assume the front runner is
going to count for you. However kids, we know what happens when you assume. Last
nights count back was a simple 6 but it was a well placed 6 because it was so
dark the front runner couldn't see if the number was 6 or 16 so it assumed the
The count back was also located in a vacuum of sound where whistles and screams were absorbed and only heard by a cranky muggle walking his dog. This cranky muggle waited idly to harass every runner. The various hasher reactions were priceless. Many runners ignored him but Will Sing sang "On-On" even louder. Motherload yelled a loud "No" for ever plop he saw as a response to the muggles request of "Be Quiet!". The muggle actually poked Big Foozy Balls and received a good threatening. When the muggle yelled at me to be quiet my first reaction was to apologize then blow my whistle when I turned the corner, very passive aggressive. Spicy and HPV laid a fun and dynamic trail taking us through a dark golf course and a very small amount of shiggy towards the end.
We were glad to see Tigger the Gay Stripper..Oh My and Will F*ck for Food back again with the new addition (baby!!). Lastly we should take a moment to recognize some very important hash items we take for granted, the beer pitchers and brainless award. Last night someone (Dab) forgot to pack them so the angels served beer out of mugs and the brainless was my disco ball drink holder. It changed the whole dynamic. So next time we see those items take a good hard look at them, give a nice little rub, and just appreciate their absolute importance.
