It's all fun and games 'til you get a zipper in the eye.

One year there was a Pillow Fight Club at Burning Man. I had no idea how exhausting a pillow fight could be. Fortunately the ground was covered with pillows, so after I ran completely out of breath and my muscles all turned to jelly, I could just flop down and rest.

How does one pillow-fight internationally? Seems like this would be most fun for people living near borders.

US says it takes this threat seriously and, along with its considerable range of pillows, is also placing duvets and slankets on high alert.

I think plaster casts of victims' faces squashed into memory foam would be ideal.

There are people who say, "I don't get it. So it was a pillow fight." To which I say: "You weren't there."—Shirley "Big Cheddar" Bennett

I've done a couple of large scale pillow fights and found myself concussed a lot faster than in actual fights.

Community reference has been made?
Okay, carry on. Walk softly, and carry a spare pillow.

Can I take a German pillow to a Swiss pillow fight, or is that an unfair advantage? (German pillows are 80cm square and soft, and the BEST)
