Mad Magazine Introduces 43-Man Squamish As an amusing parody of big-time NCAA athletics, the June 1965 edition of Mad magazine introduced a new collegiate sport devised by writer Tom Koch: 43-man squamish. The rules call for squamish to be played on a pentagonal-shaped field called a fluteney in which the two teams line up on opposite ends to start play. (Think about it.) A squamish game is comprised of seven ogres of 15 minutes each--or eight ogres if it rains. Players are outfitted in polo helmets and swim fins and carry long hooked sticks called frullips. The object of squamish is to advance the pritz (a ball made of untreated ibex hide and stuffed with blue jay feathers) beyond the opponents' goal line to score woomiks (worth 17 points each) or durmishes (worth 11 point each). Some of the positions include left overblats, outside grouches, offensive niblings, and a dummy. The game's officials include a probate judge and a baggage smasher. This illustration shows what a first-rate collegiate squamish team would look like.
