READY, STEADY, GALLOPING GOURMET MEET THE NAKED CHEFS IN HELL'S KITCHEN: This Week's Recipe - Stone Jug Hash

  • Preparation time - 5 seconds to look at map, 2 hours to set, 1 hour to drink.
  • Running time - 1 hour to run, 2 hours to drink.

  • Ingredients:
  • 3 hares - Frau, Shufflecock & Skippy
  • 1 bag of floor
  • 1 George pub
  • 1 Stone Jug pub
  • 20 or so hashers

  • For the topping:
  • 1 dual carriageway
  • 1 wood to get lost in
  • 1 swing

Instructions:
Discard The George pub as it's closing and the locals have decided to try and drink the pub dry on Saturday night. Move location to The Stone Jug and hope everyone finds out about the change in location.
Turn up at 11am on Saturday to set the run, get rained on, go home and come back at 4pm. Place flour on the ground using the Wuther-Dorsch method, for about 2 hours. Once back at the pub, add wine, beer and a lemonade (with straw).
Leave run to marinade overnight.
Run will be ready at 11am precisely, arrive early to watch all the bad attempts at parking. Raise concerns at the grating technique that Knobber used, the road is not a suitable substitute and should be avoided at all costs.
Serve up the run for the hashers, usual cooking rule of "if you don't like it, don't have any" are suspended and all hashers are expected to complete the main course or they'll be no pudding.
Look on in amazement as Lady Chatterly and Pussies are both seen FRBing, see Shagpile become a swinger, watch as Overflo shows you his Green Cross Code, chastise Knobber and Mekon for ignoring number checks, look away as PP climbs a massive trunk (tree) and wish for earplugs any time Fizzy comes within shouting distance, you'll need about a mile before levels become tolerable.
Once back at the pub, feed hashers with cake (shortbread and
flapjacks) and wash down with copious amounts of beer.
Allow the RA and secret RA (Limp) to say a few words, deliver a few down-downs and award Edwina 123 with a deca mug.

Next Meal: Stockgrove Country Park

This week's dish - which to be fair was very tasty - was given added spice by an H5 record 56% harriettes. It strongly vindicates The Count's assertion, made at Brecon in 2007, that "we are becoming the WI Hash".

Those Celebrity Chefs revealed (52% harriettes)
.. and no mention of Two Fat Ladies or The F Word

THE EQUINOX RUN ON 21 SEPTEMBER FROM THE EXCELLENT GLOBE FEATURED A VISIT TO EVERY STREET IN ONE OF THE DUNSTABLE QUADRANTS. WELL DONE HARE RINGER AND GOOD TO SEE 100% OF THE HASH STILL IN THE PUB AN HOUR AFTER THE RUN (EVEN THOUGH THE CIRCLE WASN'T GOOD ENOUGH FOR THE FAT CONTROLLER)


H5 is the WI Hash...


... which has it's calypigous side ...


... talking of which, Lady Builder ...


... and the next generation are ready to take over
