Calling all Pillow-biters

pillowfight.gifI stumbled over this bizarre French site devoted to pillows. The French go in for the square-shaped pillow which I don't like. But, you know, whatever turns you on. I followed the link from the Paris Pillowfight site to Wikipedia -

"A pillow fight flash mob is a fad that has emerged from the social phenomena of flash mobbing. The flash mob version of massive pillow fights is distinguished by the fact that nearly all of the promotion is Internet-based. These events occur around the world, some taking the name Pillow Fight Club after the London pillow fight group.
The trend owes much to uses of modern communications technologies, including decentralised personal networking, known as smartmobbing. Word of the events spreads primarily via digital means, usually on the internet via email, chat rooms and text messaging which result in seemingly spontaneous mass gatherings. Pillows are sometimes hidden and at the exact pre-arranged time or the sound of a whistle, the pillow fighters pull out their pillows and commence pillow fighting. The pillow fights can last from a few minutes to several hours.

game on!
Apparently the Kiwis snared the record for The World's Largest Pillowfight on Anzac Day last week. Kiwi pillowfight

Someone tried to organise a pillowfight in Melbourne during the recent Commonwealth Games but it turned out to be a bit of a fizzer.

So come on Sydney - get with the programme. We have to have a better Pillowfight than the Mexicans and the Sheep-Shaggers. Here are the rules -

Tell everyone about pillow fight club

Turn up at pillow fight club venue with a nice soft pillow hidden in bag.

At exact given time pull pillow from bag and fight

Do not fight anyone without pillow in hand

Talking of pillows - Pillowing - The Japanese way of referring to the physical joining of men and women. The term was introduced on the five-part, twelve-hour miniseries SHOGUN (aired 9/15-19/1980) based on James Clavell's epic novel Shogun set in the feudal Japan of the early 1600s. The story followed the adventures of Pilot Major John Blackthorne (Richard Chamberlain) an Englishman whose Dutch ship wrecked off the Japanese coast. When Anjin-san (Japanese name given to Blackthorne meaning "Pilot") became the guest of the lord Toranaga (Toshiro Mifune), he was treated to the sexual invitation of sharing a bed with one or all three women at his disposal. When he told them "Perhaps later," his puzzled interpreter Lady Mariko (Yoko Shimada) remarked "How can you be healthy without pillowing. It is very important?" When she asked Anjin-san if perhaps he would prefer a boy, he became outraged and said "My intimate customs DO NOT include boys!" Lady Mariko then apologized for her misinterpretation of the matter. Anjin-san later "pillowed" down with Lady Mariko.

So who's up for it? Sydney Pillowfight. Maybe on May 20 to tie in with the Paris Pillowfight?Bring it on baby!
