    It's been a bit of an annual tradition in my family to get hot chocolates from Loco Mexican in Front Valley. It's that little kiosk on the outside of the Perisher Centre, just below the magic carpets.

    Anyway, this year I turned up and the usual Latino family weren't there. The young bloke running the shop looked for all the world like a young Hamish Blake, complete with wispy facial hair. To me, he looked pretty much like Hamish did when Hamish and Andy first started.

    So I asked him if he was sick and tired of people asking him if he is related to Hamish Blake. He said he'd never been asked that before. Anyway he almost cracked up every subsequent day when I turned up for my mid-morning hot chocolate and snack.

    So I'm putting out a call for any forumites visiting Perisher this year, who are so inclined, to wander over to Loco Mexican, buy a snack or drink, and ask this young bloke wearing a beige The North Face beanie if he's related to Hamish Blake.

    If you want to make it seriously weird, buy the same as I did, a hot chocolate without cream or marshmallows, and a hazelnut Dairy Milk chocolate bar.

    Enjoy!

    The Latino family is gone?!? Ive never bought anything from them but I always remember them being there.

    Anyway, if the Hamish lookalike is on when I'm up in two weeks ill ask him if he is related and order a hot chocolate without cream or marshmallows, and a hazelnut Dairy Milk chocolate bar.

    I'll be in on it for the weekend of the 19th.

    Hope he is not on this forum, or it could go pear shaped with some return fun.

    I’m good for early August. A little gap then a recurrence will do his hipster head in...

    I'm in. But first I need to google Hamish Blake so I don't say it to the wrong cafe dude.

    I can only think of 2 forumites young enough to qualify. And they're both busy out on the slopes. :D

    Walked past there today. There was nobody there who looked like Hamish. Somewhat surprisingly there was a man there who resembled a mexican:D

    I misunderstood the thread title.
    When you said, 'lets start a running gag' I was expecting something like:

    Q: How do crazy runners go through the forest? A: They take the psycho path
    or
    Q: Why was the blonde jogging backwards? A: She wanted to gain weight!

    I'm sure there's a Poo Jogger gag just waiting for an opportune moment to sneak in through the back door...
