Farnarkeling is a sport whose origins are somewhat dappled by the shadows of history. There have been claims that it began in Mesopotamia, which literally means 'between the rivers', and which would put it in Victoria or New South Wales somewhere between the Murray and the Darling, although there is evidence the Pitjijinjarra people had been arkeling from around the time of Noah and there are certainly depictions of arkeling on vases dating from the pharaohs of Egypt.
The word Farnarkeling is Icelandic in structure, Urdu in metre and Celtic in the intimacy of its relationship between meaning and tone.
In essence, Farnarkeling is engaged in by two teams whose purpose is to arkle, and to prevent the other team from arkeling, using a flukem to propel a gonad through sets of posts situated at random around the periphery of a grommet. Arkeling is not permissible, however, from any position adjacent to the phlange (or leiderkrantz) or from within 15 yards of the wiffenwacker at the point where the shifting tube abuts the centre-line on either side of the 34 metre mark, measured from the valve at the back of the defending side's transom-housing.
