The Chook Report – Racing rules of sailing and the fake orange chook
By Hei Hei the chicken.
With no club sailing club this week. I met with a counsellor after the… incident. I commenced by asking are there any rules and do they apply to me? She replied, “Well as MBSC chicken the Racing Rules of Sailing apply to you” how? “Rule 4 of the RRS says we all agree to accept the rules.”
What do these rules say? “Well, let’s talk about rule 2 Fair Sailing and rule 69, Gross Misconduct…”.
How do you explain woke sharpie sailors, aren’t they gross misconduct?, “Sharpie sailors can be gross, but gross conduct and gross misconduct are not the same thing…”
…and what is woke? and why is it a problem? “Well Hei Hei, woke is an African American English word from a 1938 blues song, Scottsboro Boys, it means being aware of injustice. Who has been talking to you?” I told my councillor “The Great Orange Chicken!”
The counsellor lady began talking about examples of breach of Rule 69 from the world sailing guidelines, illegal behaviour, bullying, discriminatory behaviour, intimidation, physical or threatened violence, Inciting others to break rule 2. I began thinking of the Great Orange Chicken, my chook hero, first chicken to be… Suddenly this chicken felt deep antipathy, did the great orange chicken mean sharpie sailors are the problem?  Did he accept defeat graciously? Did he cheat at golf?
I squawked at the nice lady “Why wasn’t I told! “ Holding this chicken gently and at a natural angle she stroked my feathers and as this chicken calmed into a hypnotic state said “Hei Hei, the orange one has a bad fake tan and a red hat, Donald Trump was not the first chook president. He is not even a chicken.”
Club members, Hei Hei’s coop has been modified, he can no longer see next doors TV. Our chicken has now been provided with alternative viewing, 18’ skiff videos. We hope this help his fowl language issues.
