Posted:i lost a poi. people who know me or have seen me spin, may know the poi. it was red, still is. probably...



i loved that poi. its friend is very lonley without it... they taught me so much.

i used to hate having to tell people they had curled up balls of wire in the ends. now its gone i miss it.



i know where it went. this is the storey:



at about 4 o clock on sunday at beautiful days a dodgy looking fellow named oli decided he needed the loo and took a trip to the portaloo.

it was suprisingly clean. while he was urinating one of his poi which he had casually slung over his shoulder, slipped off and fell straight into the depths of the loo.

oli looked very confused for a while and started looking for the poi in disbelife. but... it had gone forever.



so the moral: allways make sure youre poi are securly fastend before entering a portaloo.



there are mk 2 red sock poi in construction.

May it live on in our memories forever:-D

Posted:Pyrowill - I have the same set of poi - they are lovely but discovered I have the same problem as you! On one poi the cylinder keeps flying out while I'm playing and it is only a matter of time before I lose it. Poo! And I love them so! Going to try and keep them secured by wrapping sellotape round this weekend as promised my mate I'd do some spinning at her wedding this weekend.

Come faeries, take me out of this dull world, for I would ride with you upon the wind and dance upon the mountains like a flame.

Posted:i once had an unfortunate incident in my dads outhouse.....
I'm was peacefully relieving myself one time reading my book (our outhouse is big and has 3 poo holes in it) when i put my book down on the side of the hole and it promptly fell in the hole... so of course doing the only natural thing any reasonably sane person would do I jumped ino that hole in search of my sacred book... after awhile of scrounging around in the dark I finally got it and was confronted with the next problem... the hole was taller than I... waiting patiently for some minutes an idea slowly crept into my head and i decided to act so I jammed my back against the wall of the hole and slowly was able to climb out of the hole.... luckily for me however that hole had not been used in some years and that is the story of my tragic poo hole incident


It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potato's.

Posted:damn, that is tragic! yoy jumped in after it?! must of been pretty suspenseful then, you should write to the author about that one

that would be a good name for the book too : Down the Poo - Hole: a Collection of Tragic Events

Tales of the poo-hole:
A steamy thriller of dark cavernous holes and tragic losses of loved ones in the darknesses of the swirling vortexes of pee

course there would have to be gypsies in the tale to spice it up a little more
