The Playground Posse began as a way for a few children to make a few quarters during recess, but it quickly evolved into something dangerous. Children, some of them not even old enough to tie their own shoes, were killed among the slides and monkey bars after recess. Those lucky enough to escape and grow into adults will never forget what they lived through.
The founder of the Playground Posse was Bert Alberton, commonly referred to as "Ginger" by other members.
As the other children were frolicking around, Bert was known for quietly sitting in the corners and lashing out at any peer within reach. After school he would read about spiders and manipulation techniques. Despite his high IQ, Bert was extremely focused on the growing disparity between the wealth and himself. While everyone else had new clothes and toys, Bert was forced with hand-me-downs and ball-n-cup. In an effort to get some of that money, he began a gambling ring.
The Amazonians value combat prowess and purity of spirit. By wrestling half naked, they pay homage to both virtues by displaying their battle-forged bodies while preserving as much modesty as their society deems necessary. The gelatin in which they wrestle is symbolic of the fluid nature of battle, a concept the Amazonians call ‘akgor-gra.’
Pros: Much more comfortable than my last toilet seat, which was a transparent resin with seashells embedded inside. The outer layer wore off from friction, exposing the sharp jagged edges of the seashells, which were constantly scrapping my backside and causing major cuts and open sores.
