Cartoon-of-the-day : More snooker.

I first thought Ratty got the hand, then as he looks rather curious... I'm afraid Fox put himself in this situation.
Warning : non work-safe !

OK, I don't hide I have no idea how to play pool and what is the slang, but ah, poor Foxy! I could virtually hear his...balls ring! Hope no permanent harm has been inflicted.

Funny.

There's 15 red balls and 6 colour balls (yellow, green, brown, blue, pink, black).
The player must pocket alternatively one red ball and one colour ball. Each colour ball is put back on the table till they're the only ones remaining. Then they must be pocketed in a given order.
If a player misses his hit, his adversary gets the hand. If he doesn't pocket the right ball, or the white (horror !) he gives points to his opponent.
A player can pocket two or more (very rare !) red balls and then he plays a colour ball.
Maximum score in one row is 147, "Royal Century" : 1 red and the black 15 times, then all the colours.
To snook means to trick, to hide : when a player can pocket no ball, he tries to "snook" his adversary, leaving him with an impossible table. It can be made too in order to cause the opponent to do a "miss", so gaining needed point to win over him.

Ieek! If I were Ratty I'd make sure Fox uses his red speedos... tucking his "personal balls" in next time *LOL*
