if you haven’t yet fallen down the rabbit hole of mr. show it is not too late.


Also a centuries-old tradition in the highly competitive archery culture of Bhutan.

Competing archers also engage in verbal battle, giving players a chance to display intellectual and literary skills. In archery matches, bombarding opponents with verbal confrontation is equally important to scoring bullseyes. Players and teammates praise their own arrows, lend advice and encouragement to each other, and demean opponents in florid literary expressions known as kha shed . Competitors must be prepared to provoke or reply in an equal or more impressive literary fashion.[4]
