Bull In A China Shop Bowling

roll balls and smash up the good china

Instead of the usual set of skittles, a range of ornaments and stacks of delicate china cups are lowered into place ready for the bowls to smash them into smithereens.

Once they have been reduced to broken fragments, an automated sweeper and vacuum clears the debris ready for the next pallete of delicates to be put in place.

The actual items are of course all a combination of unwanted collections and slightly flawed factory rejects.

       There will be plenty of those dopey blown glass prancing horse ornaments, and ornate sandblasted decorative goblets of course.

       That will be entirely satisfactory.

       I'll bowl a frame of real flawless china in memoriam for billionaires passed.

       You can look forward to the "priceless Ming Vase" event then.

       Teracotta Army, shirley ?   

       A bowling game where the object is to smash ranks of terracotta warriors would be entertaining.   

       The technique employed with muzzle-loading field artillery is to "skip" the cannon ball along the ground, so as to cause maximum casualties. This could be similar.

       Not our china, please. We're using it to store crude oil.

       At the village fete or school fete, where there would be old-fashioned sideshows like a tombola, whack-a-mole, coconut shy, etc. my father always used to run the china-smashing stall. He had a tall rank of shelving and would line it with donated old cups, plates and glassware. I think you would pay 20p for three balls, and you stood behind the line and threw them as hard as you could. He would clear up the mess and re-stack any holes in the display. He would often have the biggest takings of any of the sideshows.
