Animal Farm

  • When: 02/11/21
  • QIC: TarTar
  • The PAX: Pancake(2.0), Ricochet(2.0), Clueless, Tumbler, Gamma(R), JD(R), Horseshack, Solocup, SS Minnow(R), Coppertone, Banjo Boy, Dick Tracy, Deadhead, Mongoose(2.0), Sheepdog, Exit54, Dr Lecter, Birdcage, TBone, Wexler, Kojak, TarTar


22 Men emerged from The Gloom to get better. The PAX was rewarded with a dystopian beatdown of Orwellian proportions – war is peace, freedom is slavery, ignorance is strength – and every exercise has an animal name.

Well, maybe not that extreme, but every exercise did have an animal name.

A litany of new exercises recovered from the Exicon were assembled to entertain, inspire and generally confuse.
No [actual] animals were injured during the execution of this beatdown.

Seal Jacks x20
Down Dog
Dancing Bear x5
Copperhead Squat x10
The Wolverine x5

Howling Monkeys
Exicon: “In a circle, everyone grabs their ankles in Monkey Humper fashion (or Gorilla Humper, for the fearless) . The first person does ten monkey humpers followed by the next person and so on as in other “ring of fire” exercises. Don’t let go of the ankles! Depending on the number of PAX, two rounds seems to result in Howling Monkeys. This will definitely not be a crowd pleaser, and it might be better to not be seen by light of day in a public space.”

COT – Blessing for Strength and Perseverance

1. March 20 – Extinction Race – lots of interest from other AOs, so take advantage of “Ridge priority” and sign up soon!

4. 2.0 – canned food drive success, collecting 3000 lbs (?). (I could not catch all the details..)


Thank you for the opportunity to lead, and being good sports with the new exercises. #EndlessSupport #NeedToQMoreOften

Shout out to Pancake(2.0) for the impromptu leading of crunchy frog. I appreciate the backup, especially at the end. #SteppingUp

Thanks to Wexler for pointing out that there was a fair amount of ‘humpin’ exercises. I suppose this also fit the ‘animal’ motif. (ref: Bloodhound Gang, “Aint Nothing But Mammals”)

    4. 2.0 – canned food drive success, collecting 3000 lbs (?). (I could not catch all the details..)

    Scouting For Food in the district collected 30,000 pounds of food for the area’s hungry. Pancake’s and Mongoose’s troop alone did over 1,100 lbs so thanks to everyone who gave so generously.
