Commandments of Bicycle Jousting: The Guts, The Glory.

Guest written by Gato. 

Hear ye! Hear ye!  Gather thine fools, wenches, naves, and such for the second annual steel-horse mounted jousting shenanigans.  Yonder in the kingdom of the Pub of Elliot...well, the parking lot behind it...the bravest will gather for the asinine tradition of mounting giant adult tricycles built for two, donning of latex horse heads, and whacking of foam rubber noodles.  

Whilst noodles will stingeth and swords may crosseth, the discomfort and humiliation will not end there*.  Your performance will be judged by a panel of your peers and possibly a crowd of jeers.  

 A competitive performance will be based on the following factors:

  1. Attire - Latex horse heads will be provided, but you will decide what flair to wear to woo the judges.  Will you dress like a jouster or a jester?  
  2. Attitude - A true jouster is more than just an athlete.  Do you have what it takes to win over the crowd and judges with your words of inspiration, whit, humor, or what Shakespeare would refer to as swaggerith?  
  3. Accuracy -  Gird thine loins! But no hits to the groin, face, spokes, or gears will be permitted.  This is self-explanatory right?

Doeth thoust the courage to joust?  Will thoust leave with pride or be denied?  Come find out at Elliot St. Pub on Thursday, June 18th at 8 p.m.
