Tiddlywinks is a wonderful game, a game for real men. I was the reigning champion of my entire district for 5 years. There are few in England who can squap a wink better than I.

We only got to wear nettle diapers on special occasions, like when the witch doctor came over to remove and examine at our entrails to predict the weather. He always put them back, but sometimes deposited them in the wrong place. My liver is still under my left knee, which does give me a noticible limp. As a side effect, it seems to have contributed to our birth control, as I limply go about my manly tasks.

Plywood? Ptooi! WHEN we had underwear (which wasn't often) it was made from discarded cactus plants and poison ivy leaves. My baby sister had nettles in her diaper (when she had one) to absorb the "bodily fluids." My first set of "real" underwear had been cut off a dead tramp ("Filthy Frank") and partially burned by the Health Department, but I was glad to get it so I could go to school (where I excelled in everything and, a poor but honest lad, reveled in learning and eventually -- and totally through my OWN efforts -- was eventually considered for Nobel Prizes in physics, peace, chemistry, economics, medicine and literature. When the call came I refused it because I couldn't spare the time from my research into vaccines for malaria, HIV, genetic surgery, ending poverty and unemployment, bringing the nations of the Middle East together, and writing.

The yellow sand was mostly sourced from camels, who do not relieve themselves frequently. We would track the humpy beasts accross the desert for months in the hot sun, without another morsel to eat. We shared the few yellow grains from the drifting sand storms, sifting the few atoms of water out of the yellow sand from the camel crap with our toothless mouths. The crap would be saved, to form into tiddly wink shaped pellets, that we used to suck on in the driest periods.

We used to warm up eating the yellow snow when it was nice and fresh. People who lived in a desert were lucky because they could take turns standing in each others shade -- WE had cold and there was no hiding from it. I remember one time it warmed up to five kilometers below zero! We would have gone swimming if all the water wasn't frozen.

Yes he did, 'cause he lived next door to the topless-bottomless-sideless cardboard box my family lived in. And the cars that hubcaps were stolen from were those which were driven by people with an income. The really tough kids also stole their wheels and tires as they passed by, spitting on us who had a negative income balance. When they'd do that we all ran out and stole the car's body and engine as well.

After we sold all of our winks we still had the urge to tiddly. We, however, lived in a VERY rough and tough neighborhood. For instance, babies where weaned straight to cheap whiskey and their older siblings stole hubcaps from moving cars. So we used manhole covers as winks and the basement of houses as a pot (roofs were never an obstacle). This added a new and exciting dimension, as sometimes you had to squidge off standing in the sewer.

"I first realised I was a winker when I completed a double-squop at my first competition and saw that wink drop in the pot winning me the competition and scooping me the prize of 35 pence. From then on I couldn't go a day without ploinking my tiddly in a pot," Russell told Winking World, the official journal of the English Tiddlywinks Association."

When he was almost the 2008 tiddlywinks world champ.

His story can be read here and it's a story worth reading, imo. It is a tale filled with wit, political intrigue and one man's insightful observations. Here's to you Russell Brand. It should be mentioned that he is an Englishman.
