To play: you will need a level playing field with strategically placed holes at the fringes, and a big stick.
The object of the game is for the white to put all the coloureds into the aforementioned holes, using the big stick to facilitate the process.
To start the game, imprison all the coloureds in a triangular cage, and place the white ball at the top of the table.
Eventually you will have to release the coloureds from their cage. As soon as you do this, use the big stick to help the white ball to break them up.
This will make it easier to proceed to pick them off one by one.
The rules stipulate that when a coloured ball is sunk it must stay in its hole. If the white ball sinks however, you simply put it back on the table and continue.
Once you get good at the game, you can try playing one coloured off another to put it in a hole.
The only major difference in this analogy is that in billiards you have to try and save the black for last...
I'm sure there's more to this analogy but I just wanted to get it down while it was fresh in my mind.
NB: Before the recently disassembled Andrew Bolt Comment Army find their way here to start on some racist tirade about whatever, I should point out this blog post is intended for comedic and/or revolutionary purposes only ;)
