Bungee Jumping

Al and Joe are bungee-jumping one day. Al says to

Joe, "You know, we could make a lot of money running

our own bungee-jumping service in Mexico."


Joe thinks this is a great idea, so they pool their

money and buy everything they'll need: a tower, an

elastic cord, insurance, etc.


They travel to Mexico and begin to set up on the

square. As they are constructing the tower, a crowd

begins to assemble.


Slowly, more and more people gather to watch them

at work. When they had finished, there was such a

crowd, they thought it would be a good idea to give a

demonstration. So Al jumps. He bounces at the end of

the cord, but when he comes back up, Joe notices that

he has a few cuts and scratches.


Unfortunately, Joe isn't able to catch him, and he

falls again, bounces and comes back up again. This

time, he is bruised and bleeding.

a couple of broken bones and is almost unconscious.

1973 ISKCON Mexico City we set up & smashed a few pin~atas.

Contestants have to swing stick at while paper-mache object.

Contestants r blindfolded. Pin~ata contains candy or colored flour.

Pin~ata is suspended on rope which is lowered & raised.

Ole Mex mandir was really great 'cos we had large reception hall with long staircase & rails on which we tied/wrapped ropes.

One Spider-shaped Pin~ata we called Aranya-kazipu.

Aranya means spider in Spanish.

Another Witch-shaped Pin~ata we called La Gran PUtA PutanA.

PUtA means... Look it up yourself.
