HASH TRASH - Run 667

HASH TRASH - RUN 667
Devil Run Plus One
Place: Hof HaSharon National Park & Beach
Hare: Deliverance
 
There is a great photo circulating around the web right now that shows just how thick the fog that blanketed Israel's central and Sharon regions on Saturday actually was. The after-effects of the fog were just as dramatic: flour blobs congealed, broke into bits and were swallowed up by Mother Earth. At least, that's the theory floated by the Hare as Run 667 threatened to end even before it began.
 
Flour! My kingdom for some flour! Not only were blobs few and far between, but the Hare actually admitted to scant markings within the national park area; she would be punished later but still, we must applaud her commitment to environmental awareness.
 
Dr. Do-little gave Fer Fox Sake a bit of a scare by appearing and disappearing, as is his wont, without even any fog to conceal him. His powers are truly amazing and it's unfortunate that Uri Geller named his new heir without witnessing Dr. D's abilities.
 
The second half took the runners down to the beach -- the hard way. The Hare and RA conferred and erred as to which cliffside path to take, leaving the hounds to scramble through narrow channels, eventually having to leap inelegantly to terra firma. Scrapes were disinfected in the Eastern Mediterranean, a body of water famous not so much for its healing properties but more for being the regional backwash of marine pollution.*  
 
The Down-downs celebrated the return of Bravefart, who is treating her Achilles heel with shoe therapy (six pairs of flats to replace her high heel collection), Loose Caboose and Turn-Ho's coming on time**, and the arrival of Virgin Gayle, who narrowly missed having her running shoes baptized for the second time*** by an overly enthusiastic Diablo.
 
What won't Fer Fox Sake do for Fox's sake? Rupert Murdoch's empire was clearly set to be bankrupted by the amount of vacation time accrued by FFS who instead graciously agreed**** to take the two months off and go shark diving. Hey, it's not as exciting as a tour around Iraq or last summer's Lebanon war, but life can't be that fun all the time. We wish the RA a great trip and will muddle through in his absence, ably led by Ass. RA Dead Boring.*****
 
* I am NOT whinging, just pointing out a fact.
** And simultaneously!
*** He drizzled beer on them two weeks earlier at a Thirsty Knights run.
**** Meaning: Bowed to the pressure of News Corp's Inhuman Resources department.
***** DB writes from his bed of pain: "How could Diablo be FRB when he was the hare? The record of run 666 which will appear in the Holyland Hash bible and be the guiding light to future hashers for millions of years should read FRB DEAD BORING (thou shalt not bestow such an honour on one so unworthy as Diablo)." Duly noted by Hash Scribe and gauntlet duly thrown at Diablo. We await Round 2.

Yes folks, thanks to the miracles of modern technology, pictures of a bunch of people riding on a bus, running around in the damp, drinking beer out of plastic cups and eating barbecue standing up are now available for all to share. So far, Humble Scribe has managed to upload 2 out of some 50 pictures (computer is grinding away slowly) and hopes to have them all online before Run 777 comes around.
