Hashing? Not Hashing?

I guess I’m officially a codger now. The beer bong crowd has weighed in.

Kiss That Rego Goodbye!

Have you heard the latest news from Stray Dog’s World Hashspace InterHash Facebook Hash-L “G”-for-Gispert Global Central™?

A local hasher emailed me, asking me to weigh in as a elder and condemn a guy for getting physically violent at a recent weekend hash. I’m [...]

By Declaration of the Royal We

So you thought Java was hosting InterHash 2012? Wrongo, moose breath, Kenya is! How did we learn of this surprising development? From the Royal We, the very “Publisher for the Hash World®” himself:

Due to a long and intensive investigation of the voter fraud that occured at the last Interhash in Borneo, it is the [...]

Yelling “Fire!” in a Crowded Theater (Now with Four Updates, & Censored to Boot)

Can this possibly be true? According to the two articles below, this guy, apparently a hare for the Peach Fuzz H3, laid flour inside an International House of Pancakes restaurant in Augusta, Georgia, and when confronted by an IHOP employee, said the powder was anthrax and ran away.

Is this even remotely believable? I know [...]
