Ask Doctor Down-Down: January 2007

Dear Doctor Down-Down,

The other day, someone posted “Hasher of the Year” nominations to the Hash E-mail List. This strikes me as unseemly. Wouldn’t “Arsehole of the Year” be more hashlike?

On On!
Hash Curmudgeon

Dear Curmudgeon,

Aren’t they both the same? If we call management “mismanagement” and the hash organization a “disorganization,” it’s only appropriate that we call great hashers arseholes!

Since you asked (you did, didn’t you?), my nomination for Arsehole of the Year is Tumblin’ Bill Panton of the Kuala Lumpur HHH and Washington DC HHH. Why? For mapping the genealogy of hash kennels around the world. For setting up the Hash Heritage Foundation. For getting the government of Malaysia to donate land for a new Hash House in Kuala Lumpur. For heading up the project to build the new Hash House in Kuala Lumpur. What an arsehole! Let’s drink to him!

Here’s to Tumblin’ Bill,
He’s a blue,
He’s a hasher,
Through and through,
He’s a pisspot,
So they say,
Tried to get to heaven,
But he went the other way!

On On,
Doctor Down-Down

Dear Doctor Down-Down,

You fairly blew your InterHash 2008 prediction, mate! Shouldn’t you do a down-down?

On On,
Perth ’08 InterHash Committee

Dear Perth,

My ass is frozen to the block,
My hair is soaked with beer,
I glady deign myself to mock,
And wish dear Perth great cheer!

On On,
Doctor Down-Down

Dear Doctor Down-Down,

I’ve noticed that more Hashers participate in On-Afters when the Circle is short. Am I on to something?

On On,
GM in Training

Dear GM,

Indeed you are! On-Afters are the social continuation of the Circle. If the Circle’s short, Hashers will still be feeling the post-trail high and will want to continue it at On-Afters. If the Circle’s too long they’ll be worn out and thinking of home. If you’re going to remember one thing as GM, remember that!

On On,
Doctor Down-Down
