Hello there all you huggable hashers!
The hash-trash has landed right into your web-page…PLOP!

Welcome to the gossip column of the loopiest bunch of fun-loving people in Mauritius!

Now…
Hmmmmm…
Let’s see what was in the cards for today…
Situated in the North, the trail promised to be Run 517 !!!
… But most of the run turned out to be undercover in the woods, including a village and beautiful views of Coin de Mire…
Run 517 Run 517 Run 517

A very good hash and everyone applauded the hares for their good choice - the long and the short of it…

517 Adventures
Back at the circle, we all huddled together under one small tree for a little bit of shade, sitting down in our comfy chairs…all these hash couch potatoes…hash potatoes…hash browns! …And some of us were indeed browning and bronzing in the midday sun! We almost got run over by the same car twice and by a quad-bike, because we invaded a small country road right in front of someone’s house, these loud and loony aliens from MH3.

Turn off the sun!
(Don’t say that too loud in front of the Green guys and environmentalists!)

Hash Circle Hush!

In the absence of our GM Supremous Blobus the Incredible and our RA Peter the Malignant……we had a SCOTTISH TAKE OVER today,
featuring as GM the one & only
Captain Nemo
Leslie the Great
Run 517
and welcoming back in the special guest appearance as RA,
John the STALLION!
Run 517
With this cast it promised to be a memorable run-around-in-a-circle indeed!

Leslie mentioned something about John running around Rose Hill and having grown up in Aberdeen with the phosphorescent granite, he was glowing in the dark… Ooh la la, John himself made us all wonder what it was that was glowing in the dark?Run 517

Switch off those naughty thoughts!
Shhhhhhh!

THE SPEECH

“Bible John”, being the Religious and Sex advisor… wanted to bestow some knowledge upon us Philistines in the shadows of the US Election fever…the excitement of the times in which for the first time in history the USA could have a woman or a black man as president, ah the HOLY GRAIL of becoming president of the USA…but he also wanted to point out the scandals, tragedies and controversies of this position with the following mystery…

Hash History Lesson

Silence in the Hash Classroom!!!

Abraham Lincoln & JFK
Run 517 Run 517

Abraham Lincoln was elected to Congress in 1846.
John F. Kennedy was elected to Congress in 1946.

Abraham Lincoln was elected President in 1860.
John F. Kennedy was elected President in 1960.

Both were particularly concerned with civil rights.
Both wives lost their children while living in the White House.

Both Presidents were shot on a Friday.
Both Presidents were shot in the head.

Now it gets really weird.

Lincoln’s secretary was named Kennedy.
Kennedy's Secretary was named Lincoln.

Both were assassinated by Southerners.
Both were succeeded by Southerners named Johnson.

Andrew Johnson, who succeeded Lincoln, was born in 1808.

John Wilkes Booth, who assassinated Lincoln, was born in 1839.
Lee Harvey Oswald, who assassinated Kennedy, was born in 1939.

Run 517 Run 517

Both assassins were known by their three names.
Both names are composed of fifteen letters.

Now hang on to your seat.

Lincoln was shot at the theater named 'Ford.'
Kennedy was shot in a car called ' Lincoln' made by 'Ford.'

Lincoln was shot in a theater and his assassin ran and hid in a warehouse.
Kennedy was shot from a warehouse and his assassin ran and hid in a theater.

Booth and Oswald were assassinated before their trials.

And here's the kicker...

A week before Lincoln was shot, he was in Monroe, Maryland
A week before Kennedy was shot, he was with Marilyn Monroe.

I bet you all thought I could never remember all that?

Ha! The power of the trash box* has astounded us yet again.

Everyone wanted to know what all this had to do with the price of flour….and what does the price of flour have to do with the inevitable beer-shower????

Hee Haa! Onto less serious stuff now chaps!

Claude… pay attention!

See how this is done!

1 ~ Gilbert Ferrier …spotted by the RA who was WOWED at the horrible sight of a half naked Gilbert reading his Defi Newspaper…queue up ladies, for the grandfather of King Kong!

2 ~ Phil …for making the RA think with his dirty little mind that he might have undergone a sex change which is totally against the hash constitution…here’s to Phil’s MAN BREASTS!

3 ~ Vero & Pierre-Andre’ …these two were snuggling together to the point of…Ah la la la – kissing & cuddling on the hash, here’s to the LOVERS!

What colour are they?
They
Are
Blue!
What does that bring to mind …
Mmmmm,
Long time
No see
Back with a bang
Smelly Blue

Annelise finally graced us with her presence and brought back the longed-for never-forgotten special hash souvenir the Smelly Blue…and decided to hand it over to LESLIE for his tactical shortcutting manoeuvres – and in proper Smelly Blue tradition Leslie enrobed it NEXT TO THE SKIN, restrain yourselves ladies ooh ooh ooh!

Wow, what a beer shower!

HASH BEAUTY TIP

If you don’t have the honour of being vested with the coveted Smelly Blue…
Try to get into the trajectory of the inevitable Smelly beer shower…or SBS for short!
Beer is sooooooo an instant cure for a bad hair day!

Thanks to Harold & Adrienne for the jolly good Dholl Purri – great stuff, we all loved it!

A very special thank you to Mary for sharing Rhiya’s Scones with us.

Our next hares will be Pierre Andre’ and Laurent –

Hope to see you all there, wherever there may be…
The secret spot will be revealed soon!

Until then…
Beware
Be witty
Be wishful
Be wise
Mesmerise!

Cheery byes!
