Juniors play for chickens. Senior competitors play for goats.

    1. Article is dated May 1st. Maybe they meant April 1st.

      200 Malawi Kwacha may seem a lot for entry to the Chirimba Thirsty Pub pool competition. But say Lucky Kakowa, the honourable proprietor takes 50%, then this prices the goat at 1600 Kwacha for 16 players. A considerable amount, in fact according to my currency converter Zimbabwe$1,176,645.70 or AUS$15.25.

      Maybe the runner-up helps the winner carry it home, tied up and slung underneath the pool cue carried on their shoulders.

    1. Has anyone informed PETA of this atrocity?

    1. I did an African overlander trip and loved Malawi. The Malawians may be dirt poor, but they were by far the friendliest and most welcoming people we met on our trip. We even had spit roast goat at Lake Malawi (mmm… animal slaughter for food). So first prize is pretty special!

    1. What are they going to do with a live goat? These people are not Moslems.

    1. #4 They probably lack current goat-pilot licenses as well. Snookered.

    1. Hey, that is their culturally customarily traditional competition.  If the global exploiters had their way, these people would be forced to have Captalism and they would probably compete for something other than goats.  They might even compete for filthy MONEY.  That would be wrong.

    1. Imagine what they might play for if they were playing poker.

      No, but in related news Bunyip is finally back in business.  He’s blaming a hangover (4 months??) for his absence.

    1. The last I heard, Stoop Davy was spending his time running his horns through a bag of chitterlings (for you yankees out there unfamiliar with fine Southern koozeen, that’s pronounced “chitlins”); he plans on having another go at Mugabe.

    1. George Truwa won last Friday’s grand prize and he confessed that the anticipation that goes with winning the goat improves his game as well.

      I should think SO!
