JH: Have you ever boxed like our brothers in “A Joke from Penury”?

PK: When we were kids this is exactly how we boxed. It was great fun. Kids can endure a lot more pain than adults. Before boredom could set in we were introduced to Thai-boxing, and believing that Thai-boxers had gloves on their feet, we wrapped our feet in towels and kept the towels in place with plastic bags. I once went to kick my opponent in the head and slipped and banged my coccyx. I was rushed to the hospital. They don’t make carpets like they used to.
