6/10/2005: Pigball



The ball is covered in mashed carrots and then they let the piglets loose on it -- it's Russia's first "pig ball" championship in Moscow. The event is a part of an agricultural exhibition on Moscow's outskirts, played like soccer with two teams of five piglets.

They're pretty smart but do they know they have goals to reach? Seems like anarchy to me.

Seems like entertainment in Moscow has not advanced beyond what was available in the Communist era. Goals? Think of it as being like goals in one of the much vaunted 5-year or 7-Year Plans. You know, the ones that lead to the starvation of millions? That kind of plan.

Based on those stains in the backgournd, the pig must frequent this court on a regular basis. It's also important that the pigs have thier individual numbers, that way they can receive their individual stats for the game.

:p

I always referred to pee wee soccer as "Amoeba Ball".



lawman  Friday Jun 10 02:16 PM

Goal.... Gaol... the latter seems more Russian to me.



capnhowdy  Friday Jun 10 02:34 PM

I guess they "recarrotize" the ball at the end of each quarter.
I'll take the yellow team and two.............

Why is it that all I can think of when I look at this is, "Lhres schwein spheren, mein herr!" (foof!)?



lookout123  Friday Jun 10 03:11 PM

why is it that i can't read one thread in the cellar without being reminded how insignificant and ignorant i am?

els - could you translate that for me?



Elspode  Friday Jun 10 05:07 PM

Not to worry, it is yet another goofy pop culture reference...this time, from the Zucker film "Top Secret!" The hero of the film (Val Kilmer, actually) orders something in a swanky German restaurant without understanding what the waiter has told him. When it comes, the waiter somberly announces, in German (or some approximation thereof suitable for comic effect) "Your hog balls sir!", and sets them aflame for presentation effect.

What's the acronym for "Spit (Insert Beverage) On My Keyboard(and/or)Monitor" ?



lookout123  Friday Jun 10 05:54 PM

els - for the first time someone has made a reference to that movie that makes me want to see it. thank you. a couple more of those and i may forgive you for what you just did to the sex thread.

Yeah, but they're making less mess than most kids with mashed carrots.

Not surprisingly, Top Secret! is the Airplane! of spy movies.

There are no dull moments, and darn few where you aren't reduced to drooling from the amount of laughing you are doing.

And hey, Omar Sharif is in it. How cool is that?


York  Saturday Jun 11 06:46 AM

Haha thats a great movie, just like u said! I watched it a very long time ago, but still remember the best parts! Does anyone know if " History of the world" with Mel Brooks has a sequel? Ive once seen a commercial about it, but never found the movie....



Griff  Saturday Jun 11 07:47 AM

I don't think so. Here is the listing for Mel on Netflix.

The end of the movie is probably where you saw the ad - another tasty morsel of Mel's humor. (Hope he's doing okay...)

The commercial is part of the original movie.
