Afghan goat-mod: dead critter polo


First, take a headless calf or goat. Gut the creature, remove its legs at the knee and, for additional girth, stuff it with sand. Then toughen the carcass by soaking it in cold water for twenty-four hours. Collect two teams of horses and riders. Draw a circle on the ground and place the goat inside. You are now ready to play Afghanistan's national sport, buzkashi.

Remember, everything goes better with buzkashi (see page fifteen). (thanks, S)

I thought I'd mention that everybody's favorite Reagan-era hero, Rambo, played a rousing game of buzkashi in Rambo III. Amazon link.
