Conkers
#1
It's Conker season, for the first time in about 20 years I played and whoa! is it extreme. A few days ago, what started out as a couple of games between 4 of us turned into an hour+ long session with the addition of a Spanish bird who had to be indoctrinated into the Way Of The Mighty Conker.  I picked up a few more yesterday, and once again a brief forray into the world of Conkers turned into over an hour of mayhem. I learned tho, this time I wore my 661 knee pads on my arm - no bruising for me  Smile

The Session was also recorded for prosperity using a super sexy HD Camcorder so there may be a HD super slow mo conker fest on line sometime soon...

It turns out that it is important to name your Conker, this adds vital strength. Favourite names from the season so far;

Bad Mutha Theresa - The Nutter From Calcutta
Ghandi
Harold Shipman
The Chocolate Avenger
El Diabolo
Neil Armstrong
William The Conkerer
Spruce Lee

Bad Mutha Theresa managed to break my screwdriver!

I have also attempted to make a bulletproof conker using a cunning mix of Araldite and chopped conker innards, placed lovingly into a hollowed shell. I shall report back on how this Badboy fares.
Keep it foolish...

I was reading on the news about some big conker tournament and they are getting strict on the cheats who harden them or use elasticated string etc

Maybe you should start a petition to get Mr Rascal to re-record his Bonkers song with a minor change Wink
