Russian Shellfish and Selfish Russians

August 15th, 2008 · 2 Comments

As ties strengthen with Kazakhstan, they are souring with the Russians who are less and less willing to provide us with water. Not surprising considering the spontaneous bouts of nudity and almost continuous ABBA that we are subjecting them to. Rascal 1 and Rascal 2 came through last night, only to be cut up in the queue by a piece of Ruski queuing tactics. Taxistan forces made an excursion into no man’s land to see justice done, sitting on the bumper of the offending van until our compatriots had passed through, much to the displeasure of the shaven headed man mountain inside and the implausibly blonde ex-commie bureaucrat at the barrier. Still the Democratic Armed Forces of Taxistan (DAFT) have notched up their first battle honour.

The long awaited arrival of aid from our Australian allies arrived just before sunset last night, bringing three other teams with them. They were issued with visas and an impromptu drinks party followed after the discovery of a bottle of South African red and some spirits miniatures. Not quite enough to drown our sorrows. Perhaps mildly dampen them for a while. We sent them on their way into Russia just after 10, but not before DAFT notched up another battle honour against an all to ubiquitous gleaming white Land Cruiser. Taxistan 2 – Russians 0.

Shortly after our second victory, our Kazakh allies approached, once again respecting our borders, they laughed and handed over the rope 8 freshly cooked (and still twitching) langoustine. Washed down with flat Sprite, they were a perfect if slightly surreal celebration for the end of our third day of independence.

    I think John McCain must be following your progress. Just yesterday he said “World history is often made in remote and obscure nations.” He then sounded angry at Russia. But, for help, you are probably better off relying on the other teams.
    Thanks for the constant updates and photos.
