An Ananova link? Thought Fark didn't take those.
2003-04-29 10:42:34 AM  
Since when is Ananova back on the menu?

Billy Fish: Depend on size of man's head. Big head, big ball, small head, small ball. That Bashki man. Oh big damn head.

My guess is a black skull coming at the net would unnerve a goalie.

Alas, poor Urich...

Wow, Remind me to never go there.

Who's boneheaded idea was this???
2003-04-29 03:18:07 PM  
The real question is: were they playing what WE consider "football" or what the rest of the world considers "soccer"?
2003-04-29 04:35:05 PM  
I'm pretty sure that the person to whom the skull belonged no longer had a use for it...
2003-04-29 04:36:25 PM  
Heads are going to roll over this
2003-04-29 04:36:54 PM  
Heads Up!
2003-04-29 04:37:17 PM  
sounds like future serial killers, or terrorists, better watch them kids in hondurras, or even better LIBERATE the country!

"Alas, poor Urich... "

BUZZZZ ! Wrong answer. His name was "Yorick". Yorick is what I call one of my skull tattoos. Act 5, scene 1, great scene.

"In my day we didn't even have a football to play with...we had to use the skulls we found in the grave yard......which we had to trek through in 7 feet of snow...with no shoes on"
2003-04-29 04:40:26 PM  
Steve347: Was it in America? Question answered.
2003-04-29 04:40:49 PM reported, the police think that the teenagers stole the skull from a grave or tomb? Do they have proof, as in a report of a grave robbery in which the skull was taken? Any chance the teens found it?

Or, is the legal system in Honduras so different that the above is moot and suspicion = proof?

Apparently Farkette submitters get a pass on the anti-Ananova thing.

I'm bitter.
2003-04-29 04:41:56 PM  
Not all that uncommon...the Mongols had a game which resembled polo played with the conquered prisoners' heads

His arms and legs were used as lawn darts, pelvis a frisbee, fingers and toes various chess pieces, and his ribs were used by an Oingo Boingo cover band. Just like the Injuns these damn kids used everything.

Who else here had trouble reading/pronouncing the word "Tegucigalpa"?
2003-04-29 04:47:14 PM  
goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooaaaaaaaaaaaaaallllllllll gooooooooooooooooooooooooaaaaaaalllllllllllll!!!! gooooooaaaaaaaaalllll!!!
2003-04-29 04:48:20 PM  
Nice follow up Verdelak.

Any chance that they used the skull of the guy who drilled a hole in his head with a power tool?
2003-04-29 04:48:23 PM  
so are you trying to tell me youre supposed to play with skulls? Wow! you learn something new every day

The eye sockets provide a wicked curve on free kicks, keepers around the world are already complaining about the new ball.

Did they skullfark it?
2003-04-29 04:54:42 PM  
A police spokesman said: "They had no shame in using it to play football."

Yah, I'd feel reeaaaaal safe in that country if that is a quote from the Po-lice.

"Articles from the following sites will automatically be rejected: Geocities (can't handle the traffic), Ananova (long story) and any site requiring logins to read articles, including New York Times/Chicago Tribune/Dallas Morning News"

Wha? I know it's already been mentioned, but someone want to explain how this got through?
2003-04-29 04:58:44 PM  
I once got harassed by PETA for playing hacky sack with a cat skull.
2003-04-29 05:00:56 PM  

Maybe the story was just too good to pass up. Come on, a skull, a boy, a pop song? All the makings of a classic my friend.
2003-04-29 05:00:59 PM  
Why is fark anti-ananova? I just looked at the website and didn't see anything too crazy..
2003-04-29 05:02:05 PM

2003-04-29 05:04:23 PM

The real question is, "who won?"
2003-04-29 05:14:26 PM  
2003-04-29 05:19:10 PM  
I'd kick it.
2003-04-29 05:21:10 PM  
Skulls usually don't hold up well to kicking and the jaw would definitely become detached. Overall, a ver poor substitute for a regulation ball.
2003-04-29 05:27:28 PM  
charged with the desecration of a tomb? Mom will be thrilled.

"I told you not to hang out with that 18 year old from Barbados!"

Lets hope they were mormon!
