This past week I learned how to play croquet. Which, while being a perfectly quaint family past-time, also has the added bonus of providing ample opportunity for viciousness.
Did you know:
…That croquet was Olympic event in 1904?
…That among the greats in croquet stands Harpo Marx?
…That Winslow Homer, Édouard Manet, Louise Abbéma and Pierre Bonnard all have paintings titled The Croquet Game?
Now you do.
The surprisingly exhaustive wikipedia article about croquet.
