CHAIRMAN MAO & TRAVOLTA’S WEDNESDAY JAUNT

Record crowds were at the races last night which is pretty obvious given the poor turn out at the hash. This is probably due mostly to the fax stuff up, so this week for the first time ever the hash news is coming to you via fax and post. If you don’t get a copy of this by fax check your fax number on the Hash list. Until the fax gets sorted out the hash news will be sent by both fax and post.

The run was well thought out and original which is pretty difficult given the amount of times we have run in Repulse Bay. The trail even looped back on itself a few times and had the Rambo’s climbing down a concrete wall.

Down Down’s were conducted by Margie Park’n Shop ably assisted by daughter Louise. Is this a hash first, or the start of a trend, next week husband and wife, who knows ?

Down Down’s were awarded to:

Tomas: Returning pre-nuptial from Iceland.

Biffa: New $52,000 super computer capable of running the Star Wars project - but in reality just a Hash data base.

Ian: Formally announcing that “poetry reading season” at the Cultural Centre is over for another year. Quoted at the Wanch last night as saying “Yes I’m coming to the Hash next week and if you keep hassling me I’ll give you a hundred down downs”.

Son Of Paul: “Yes I do put two football socks down the front at those tight, bright strides”.

Neil Parkinson: Fiftieth birthday, who would of thought?

Typhoid: Letting Ian lock her out of their flat again on Saturday. When will they learn to buy a second set of keys.

Harty Swartzenagger: Putting on 3 inches around the chest. Yes you heard correctly 3 inches of muscle and its not around the waist. Amazing what a Wonder Bra will do !

The Guccis: Always the trend-setters, first to buy an automatic bread making machine. Promptly followed by the Parkers, the Harts, and the Mayers. Will you be next? Closely related to the old gramophone and antique Chinese furniture.

Chairman Mao: On his own volition went home before 2am after the Hash.

Moderate Roy: “I’m now into every thing in moderation”, as overheard in Carnegies and from the floor of a party a couple of weeks ago.

Travolta: Copy write infringement over “Jurassic Park”. Possible American boycott of the Hash. “Dinosaurs do have feelings”.

Richard & Grace: “Yes we are getting married ! We did meet on a Hong Kong running club but we didn’t get lost and how come we didn’t get in the Sunday Morning Post Magazine, after all at least we are getting married”.

Neil: Receiving $100 so that Hopeless could entertain all night in the flat.

Pinky Comer: Bad teacher, take for example the following:

Pinky: (Draws the letter F on the blackboard) What letter is this Sam? Sam: K Pinky: No F! (Draws a larger F) Now, Sam what’s this letter ? Sam: K Pinky: How come when I draw F, you see K ?

Hopeless: Receiving love faxes - framed copy available for inspection. Is this why the hash fax isn’t getting through?

Bobbledick: Apparently seen buying a round at the Wanch. If anyone was a recipient please verify with the next Hash scribe. After all miracles can happen.

HASHIT: There could only be one contender.

Hooligan: (A) Making an impression on himself, 2 passengers, 2 cars, 1 Mini Moke and the Police.
Pulled his Moke out of a side street in front of another car which obviously had the right of way.
Hooligan is adamant “ It was not my fault, it wasn’t there when I pulled out”.
(B) (1) Lost his I D card 2 years ago and never replaced it.
(2) Saturday night lost his passport which was wrapped up in two dirty plastic bags and placed “in the bottom of his sports bag”. Surprisingly the only thing that went missing was the 2 plastic bags and contents.
Again Hooligan is adamant. “ It’s not my fault, it was stolen”.
A+B=Cost
$1000 damage to car.
$2000 for extra 2 nights in Macau.
$2000 cash left in passport
$1000 original cheap cost for the weekend.
$6000 known expenses
Happy Birthday, Chris!

“Dear Arabella” comes courtesy of the Sunday Morning Post and has had an amazing response from our Hash ladies.

(1) Dear Arabella, what is the difference between a floor tile and a man ?
Dear confused Hasher, There is no difference, if you lay them properly once, you can walk all over them for the rest of their life.

(2) Dear Arabella, why is it said a man is like a snowstorm ?
Dear anonymous Hasher, it’s quite obvious, you don’t know when he’s coming, how many inches you’ll get or how long it’ll stay.

(3) Dear Arabella, My friends always compare my breasts with my son’s toy train set. Why is this so?
Dear naive Hasher, both the train set and your breasts are meant for your son, but Dad’s the one who always ends up playing with them.
