I want to talk about conkers.

Conkers!

This is clearly the worst time of day to talk about conkers as the rest of the UK and Ireland are probably most sensibly asleep. But still. Conkers!

Do you know about conkers, Americaland? Canadaland? Australialand? Restoftheworld-a-land?

IT'S A CONKERS TIME OF YEAR!

YEEEAAHHHHHH!!!!

Bonk yer conkers! Do it!

i'm still up.

i didn't know about conkers until just a few years ago, after i started living here permanently. we just call them horse chestnuts in Amerikerr, and as far as i know there is no bonking of them.

[edited because apparently i can't type after 11pm]

We stopped at the store to buy some for the picnic. Then she ate those crazy dill pickle chips in Canadaland.

We could play conkers with pickles, I suppose.

I feel compelled to ask if the game requires that you bang nuts together.

I am 99% certain that at some point you do bang nuts together. I do know that this game has a talking pile of shiitake in it.

For whatever reason, I read a lot of novels involving youths that are set in areas where conkers are a thing. So I have wikipedia-d that shiitake before and think I get the general idea. But I've never played.
