A currit coetus cum a forsit bibens
A hearty thanks to Shithouse and General Erection for their picturesque run, amazingly, not too far from the city centre. For those who could not be arsed to get out of bed on Sunday: whilst we were finishing the initial circle Shithouse jokingly asked everyone to keep a look out for his spectacles, lost 2 days prior when setting the hash, in the faint hope that someone may stumble across them. Three quarters of the way around the course General Erection advised me that it was roughly in this area that Shithouse had lost his spectacles. A couple of hundred metres later, while plodding through shiggy and morning glory, Jean, who was a few paces in front of me, stopped, stooped down and exclaimed "Oh look, someone has dropped some gay looking spectacles". We wondered if the could be Shithouses, and hey ho, they were! His look of amazement is one I won't forget. Read more about last Sunday's hash below
On the subject of lost items has anyone picked up a green hash sock, recently lost.
We were please to see old faces returning especially Herpes, an original Saigon Hasher, after a long break.
Phuc My 2 has kindly stepped in to fill the role of Religious Advisor for next week. We are still seeking someone to keep a check on the beer consumption.
On Sunday the hash will be off to Long An. Click here to skip to information about the next hash.

Somehow between last weeks newsletter and the run Ms Bean and Stevie Blunder had morphed into General Erection and Shithosue and Long An had transformed into Khu Nam, leaving many of us not knowing what changes to be on the lookout for next. The running hare was General Erection, leaving the wakers in the caring hands of Shit House. It was a beautiful run through very scenic countryside under amazing skies if the photos are to be believed. Whilst most of the tracks were suitably open General Erection did manage to get us all down on our hands and knees in the pretext of navigating some almost impenetrable undergrowth. The run report was given by Jack Off who complained about having to play the game of hide and seek for the paper (maybe he was just sore because he wasn't very good at it!). He also pointed out that the lack of obvious paper had been effective in ensuring the front runners were frequently lost including one newcomer who was almost permanently lost. He gave a score of -19. The run report was given by Hepes who was much more complimentary. He commented on the botanical garden effet of the water hyacinth and the (what's the story) morning glory, the copious shade and the luxury of the beer stop with its fridge full of cold beer and porcelain toilet. He gave it a score of 10, giving an overall score of -4.5.
Tinky Winky then gallantly stepped up to take on the mantle of Religious Advisor. He introduced the virgins to us as Erin from Melbourne, Vincent and Karen from Vancouver, and Sophie and Emma from Arizona. In a slight deviation from tradition he decided to ask them who was the sexist hasher; a title he somehow managed to win by the narrowest of margins. The returnees included Herpes and Genital Proctologist who have been babysitting for 14 years, allegedly as a result of sex on the hash; you have been warned! Fukcoffee has been to Portugal for coffee and Slow Gin has been touring Europe looking for 'Coffee. Our visitors were Thomas from Malaysia who is looking for new friends having got bored of his old ones and Ball Account from Nha Trang who is doing one of our favourite holidays in reverse.
The dobber in the form of Spandex Man then called in a number of hashers. Vincent the virgin was charged with getting overexcited when he didn't know what he was doing and going off half cocked, completely the wrong way, resulting in him having to play on his own until everyone else had finished. Thomas was charged with being desperate to cross the river despite the fact he had obviously forgotten his boat. Jean was charged with being a project manager for a project he knew nothing about and Ball Account was charged with lazyitis having opted to do the walk.
Karen was then charged by Stevie Blunder for blundering the short cut. She refused to follow him back to the trail as his route entailed crossing some shiggy which may have caused her to get mud on her shoes. As she backtracked and followed her own path back to the trail she stepped into mud up to her knees! Stevie then charged the hares with being experts in anti collaboration. They had designed trails which had almost nothing in common except a small section where they went in opposite directions. Luckily for the runners and walkers this small section included the aforementioned luxury beer stop.
Fukcoffee then charge Sexy Eyes in the place of the GM for living down to their English heritage and pillaging fruit from the local inhabitants. Fukcoffee then remained in the circle while he was charged by Slow Gin for wearing socks that were older that she is. On his recent trip home he rediscovered his old school socks and he decided to retask them as hash socks. Luckily he remembered to wash them first. Some hashers failed to see a problem with wearing clothes that were older than their partner. The GM was heard to say "what's the issue with 37 year old socks, I still wear a coat that is 40 years old, a lah Del Boy style".
Finally Tinky Winky called in Jean, Thomas and Spandex Man. Even the beautiful countryside and copious supply of beer had failed to divert his tortured mind from the sight of the three of them prancing through the fields in the tight little lycra numbers, he is concerned he may never eat again.
The ON ON was held at Ganges, Tinky Winky was notably absent.
That's all for this week.

Ms Bean and Stevie Blunder are threatening a live hare set, so why not join us and see if you can catch yourself a hare. (Yes I know, I'm feeling that sense of deja vu as well!).
Just to mix things up a bit there may be a pick up in D7 but not in D2. This will be confirmed via facebook.
The bus will leave the Caravelle at prompt, so please make sure you are there by . For directions please click here.
The Hash always needs hares let us know when you want to set your trail.
The Saigon Monday Hash House Harriers run every Monday - surprisingly enough! The start point is always posted on Facebook so please get into the habit of checking it out if you want to run with them (details here).
The Saigon Hash House Harriettes will be hosting a run on the first Friday of next month. Details will be available in the preceding week.
For details please click here.
Next year we will be supporting the Nha Trang Hash in hosting the Indochina Mekong Hash in Vietnam. Nha Trang Hash will set the walking trail and we will be responsible for the running trail. An excellent opportunity for our hares to show off their skills. If you think you are up to the challenge let the GM know and he will consider you for this coveted position. We have also offered our expertise in the provision of T-shirts and goodie bags, creative ideas will be considered. Our very own General Erection has kindly volunteered to coordinate the registration process.
