Friday 13th March - St. Patrick's Day Massacrecat
26.02.09 by Buffalo Bill

I haven’t had the time to update the blog properly, which is why I have been doing the micro-blog twatter thing. However, as this is nominally about London messengers, and House of Pistard have actually been posting some actual content, I thought I would repost this. I notice that HOP are very naughtily reviving the f*kenger thing, using the anti-PC brigade’s ‘it’s alright for me to use the word, some of my best mates are f*kengers’ argument.

Doesn’t the Obergruppenpistard know that ‘f*kenger’ is soooo 2007?

Anyway, as you can see from the flier, there are prizes for just about everyone, and the event is being sponsored by our friends over at Hell Yeah.

  1. Due to the Irish theme of this Happychase all non-couriers will actually be getting called Feckengers.

  2. I’m confused. How does one become a fakenger? Is lurking around here, cantgoslo and lfgss make me one or do I actually have to get a 12T cog inked on my calf and strap an empty archie’s grobag on my back as I’m cycling to my office job? Can I be a feckenger and not be a hipster? All these questions…

  5. WACKY RACES: The Final Standings

    If you’re anything like me — and i’d assume we’re practically friggin’ identical — you’ve always been a fan of Hanna-Barbera’s 1968 cartoon series called Wacky Races. And, of course, i also assume that, being like me, you’ve always wondered who was keeping track of the results of the races — who won the most, who won the least, how much will leading detergent companies pay to sponsor Dick Dastardly, etc. And, finally, of course, being my virtual twin, you eventually realized that the one person who actually kept track of all these exciting statistics was — of course — me, Rev. Norb. As a consumer service, i break with my Dream Blog format for a second time today, as i present to you my bevy of Wacky Race statistics i painstakingly culled from all 34 Wacky Races episodes.

    The data is laid out as follows: Car Number, Driver, Car Name, Number of First Place Finishes, Number of Second Place Finishes, Number of Third Place Finishes. I also have fourth thru tenth place finish data collected, when available, but this data is not official and cannot be shared with impressionable readers at this time.

    ((individual race results for all 34 races are available on request))

    Car #00: Dastardly & Muttley in the Mean Machine: 1st: 0 / 2nd: 0 / 3rd: 0
    Car #1: The Slag Brothers in the Bouldermobile: 1st: 3 / 2nd: 8 / 3rd: 3
    Car #2: The Gruesome Twosome in the Creepy Coupe: 1st: 3 / 2nd: 3 / 3rd: 6
    Car #3: Professor Pat Pending in the Converticar: 1st: 3 / 2nd: 2 / 3rd: 5
    Car #4: Red Max in the Crimson Haybaler: 1st: 3 / 2nd: 4 / 3rd: 3
    Car #5: Penelope Pitstop in the Compact Pussycat: 1st: 4 / 2nd: 2 / 3rd: 5
    Car #6: Sgt. Blast & Private Meekly in the Army Surplus Special: 1st: 3 / 2nd: 1 / 3rd: 0
    Car #7: The Ant Hill Mob in the Bulletproof Bomb: 1st: 4 / 2nd: 5 / 3rd: 2
    Car #8: Luke & Blubber Bear in the Arkansas Chuggabug: 1st: 4 / 2nd: 1 / 3rd: 4
    Car #9: Peter Perfect in the Turbo Terrific: 1st: 4 / 2nd: 2 / 3rd: 2
    Car #10: Rufus Ruffcut & Sawtooth in the Buzz Wagon: 1st: 3 / 2nd: 6 / 3rd: 4

    So, as you can plainly see, four drivers — Penelope Pitstop, the Ant Hill Mob, Luke & Blubber Bear and Peter Perfect — won four races a piece. Dastardly & Muttley won none ((in point of fact, never actually finished a race in which they were not disqualified)). The other six drivers won three races each. This is relatively boring information.

    Therefore, using a reasonably reasonable algorithm of “three points for a first place finish, two points for a second place finish, and one point for a third place finish,” i figured out an overall standings based on total 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishes. Here is that amazing data.

    1) Car #1, The Slag Brothers 28 pts.
    2) Car #10, Rufus Ruffcut 25 pts.
    3) Car #7, The Ant Hill Mob 24 pts.
    4 & 5) Car #2, The Gruesome Twosome; Car #5, Penelope Pitstop 21 pts.
    6) Car #4, The Red Max 20 pts.
    7, 8 & 9) Car #3, Professor Pat Pending; Car #8, Luke & Blubber Bear; Car #9, Peter Perfect 18 pts.
    10) Car #6, Sgt. Blast & Pvt. Meekly 11 pts.
    11) Car #00, Dastardly & Muttley 0 pts.

    FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: The Army Surplus Special never finished third.
