A Visit from St. Gispert

’Twas the night before Hashmas, and all through the land, Hashers were stirring, the trail would be grand; Their hash bags were stuffed in the B-Van with care, In hopes our Grand Master soon would be there.

The harriettes were wrapped all snug in their sweats, Speaking, as usual, like they all had Tourette’s; And [...]


More HHHistory

Last night, a hasher friend posted this on Facebook:

What followed was a long quote from the songbook’s introduction. It’s easier to just copy and paste the text than to post a screenshot:

Editor’s introduction

I stated up front that this book is a collaborative effort. Not unlike any joint venture in [...]


Hash Songs & Circles

Parts of an ongoing conversation, mostly carried out on hash-l:

Chicago Hasher (responding to a hash-l message about skits at the upcoming InterAmericas Hash in Savannah, Georgia):

Speaking of skits, I was wondering if anyone was going to do something like this after the latest ruling from the White House.

Melody – Ballad of the [...]


Next Thanksgiving

From the Half-Mind Hymnal:

NEXT THANKSGIVING Melody – Frere Jacques

Sunday Is a Hashing Day

I know, I know . . . in the song, Sunday is a day of rest . . . Saturday’s the hashing day. But in my life, twice a month, Sunday’s a hashing day: every second Sunday for the PISS Hash, every third Sunday for the Pedalfiles Hash. We can rest when we’re dead.

We’re [...]


An On-Oniversary

Pick’n’Flick & Flying Booger were married 43 years ago today. How. About. That.

In honor of which, and because it’s been a long time since we’ve had something from the Hymnal, a song:

Will You Marry Me? (Duet) Click here for a recording of this great old song

If I give [...]


Hash Songs Ruin You for Everything Else

More on last weekend’s trip, when Pick’n’Flick, Green Flagger, and I drove to Las Vegas to see Nose Candy, his wife Beth, and our grandchildren. We always stop for lunch in Wickenburg, Arizona – the Dude Ranch Capitol of the West! – and this time we decided to eat at a picnic table in the [...]
