Two great ancient tribes met on a frozen lake in the freezing Saskachewing land in the immense frozen north. These two warrior races decided not to fight, but to push a small pie around with rounded sticks hewn from the great naked trees occasionally surrounding the lake of creaking ice. One side won by pushing the pie into areas where the other side did not want it to go. They all then celebrated with hugging and nudeness, and those tribes discovered that there was nothing wrong with occasional consensual multi-partnered same-sex orgies (at least for those for whom the game and the cold had not eroded or shrunk their passion). And on that day, the Hockey Cockey was invented. Since then the name of the pastime has been slightly altered, and the bits of the body that you stick in, out and shake all about have also become altered, but the rules remain much the same.
