the dawn of civilization, there has been the need for man to work
together in order to survive. Our neophyte ancestors quickly realized
that living in a permanent dwelling and taking up agriculture was
much easier then nomadic hunting. After families became too large,
the single dwelling evolved into villages where multiple families
worked together in a symbiotic relationship. In our modern era the
village has given way to the city: a vast and complex community
made up of men and women from different walks of life.
keep the populous in order, laws were established by governments
and enforced by police. With government in balance and the citizens
compliant, anarchy does not ensue. Unfortunately, there are criminals
who break the law for personal gain. Among those are gangsters, playing roulette in back alleys, in organized crime rings.
the greater part of American history, gangsters have extended their
territories by having turf battles wherein multiple gangsters use
firearms and other weapons to eliminate their rivals. The gangsters
of today have tried many different ways of gaining turf with slightly
less carnage. Among those attempted are street races, Judo, arm
wrestling competitions, and occasionally Rock Paper Scissors. To
the dismay of the WFJF, the newest trend in turf warfare is finger
way gangsters have incorporated finger jousting into their way of
life is surprisingly clever but unequivocally evil and immoral.
One member from each of the two rival gangs is selected to finger
joust; both jousters should be of similar weight and stature. Then
an arena is constructed in an area of the turf. After the jousters
are ready, they enter the arena with the members of their gangs
surrounding the criminal coliseum. The matches are done in the point
play style wherein six points is the amount to win. Then the rival
gang must leave the area and can not challenge again for usually
a few months. To keep the game objective and “fair”,
referees are illegally paid to officiate.
World Finger Jousting Federation is leading this fight against gang
violence and the abuse of finger jousting. With an undercover taskforce
patrolling the streets of metropolitan areas, we believe that finger
jousting will vanish from the crime infested streets of ganglands.
Already the amount of finger jousting related crimes as dropped
substantially. It would seem that everything is changing for the
better now that gangsters have found a different game to unleash
their pursuit of land; that game is now Odds or Evens.
our dismay, there are still a few gangs left using finger jousting
for evil. If you see any gang violence in your area, relating to
finger jousting, please notify the authorities. With help from members
all over the world, we can make a difference.
