Marathon Runners Warned Not to Hunt the Livestock or Flash the Public

Wednesday, April 9, 2008

Six warriors from a Maasai tribe in Tanzania who are competing in the London Marathon to raise money for supplies in their homeland have been given a guide to the UK by charity Greenforce.

The guide stresses the importance of wearing underpants as in the UK "it is illegal to show certain parts of the body" and the warriors will be running in traditional attire including shields and spears.

The guide also indicates that one should relieve one's self in toilets rather than bushes, that Brits seem sillier when drunk, and that they should not to hunt any livestock they see in their travels.
