Are you a Pinata Jedi?

When you’re at a BBQ and a mean burro pinata is presented, what do you do?

Are you like WFY here and attempt to use the power of the Force to down paper mache? Or do you be like me and duel a burro with classic fencing moves including a vertical sword twirl? Maybe you go with Don and believe in overwhelming firepower and start swinging a tree stump.

The best part of the videos taken by Sweet over at Sour n’ Sweet? The visual proof of our utter inability (including Sweet) to do any pinata damage. That was left to the next generation of pinata bashers.

    I find it hilarious that I can hear Ian laughing in all of those clips.

    Too funny! And I heard the Nationals cracks in the background ;-) Sorry I missed it.

    While she escaped video capture, here’s DC Sports Chick in utter pinata defeat.

    Sorry I missed all the fun, I was sick as a dog all week and in no mood for being outside Saturday.

    See? Wayan thinks it was a burro too. Some folks at my table kept insisting it was a toro, not a burro. I’m an April-born toro. I know the toro. That burro was no toro.

    Out of all the participants, Sweet’s performance was the best – she had good swing, she tracked it instinctively AND she had great batting style. I’m bummed that I missed out but thanks to all for capturing the fun for all to see.
