There were only 11 intrepid hashers who managed to find their way to the depths of the Parc Monceau for hash 813 on Saturday 4 August (Just Stupid’s attempts to encourage various passing female joggers to join us not having worked !).
As it was the locals were outnumbered by the visiting tourists, so a little translation was required from our Parisian hare Running Commentary. Unfortunately he forgot to mention that his blobs of flour were quite small, that his chalky arrows were extremely faded and that his….(but that’s another story).
At down down time afterwards he was congratulated on an “amazing” hash, notwithstanding there being too much forest and too much flour. We welcomed two virgin? virgins – Just Jennifer and Just Julie. And a particular welcome was observed for our squad of visitors (Liqueur Hard, Twat High, Haes Be, Just Zac, Just Jennifer and Just Julie) without whom we would have gone off trail even more often.
Not surprisingly there were the usual culprits for deviationist activities: front running by Bender (accompanied by Just Jennifer, Just Zac and Haes Be), Wotsisname for being dead fucking last (with a lame excuse about getting lost), and the walkers (Just Julie, Liqueur Hard and Twat High) who translated “hash view of the Arc de Triomphe” as “hash view inside the Arc de Triomphe”.
Just Stupid was penalized for insistently asking what wotsisname’s hash name was. Having tried unsuccessfully to hide his sparkling new shoes he was obliged to down down again, though in the event he was accompanied by Just Jennifer who admitted the same sin.
Finally the hare was penalized along with Just Monique, his chauffeuse(?), for there being no beer on the arrival of the runners at the well hidden beer stop, and for forcing the runners to rampage through the bushes and bins of the park concerned until he sauntered up with the beer delivery from Just Monique.
