Fun For The Whole Family
I’m sure you’ve already heard of the penis game, so it should come as no surprise that my suitemates and I have managed (when we’re not making slavery jokes about Puerto Rico)to enhance the game. Take it to the next level, as it were.
See, the problem with the penis game, we reasoned, is that everyone knows you’re playing the penis game. Obviously, people in public places aren’t going to be shouting “Penis!” for no good reason (unless they’re playing a clever game), so the element of embarrassment is significantly lessened. So the trick is to come up with something to shout that is both horrendously embarrassing and is not recognizable as being the penis game.
We’ve come up with two possibilities, both of which work very well because successive repetitions make it sound as though you are having an argument, rather than just shouting a naughty word purely to give rise to prurience.
- No, you don’t get to be Gandalf! I get to be Gandalf!
- No, you gave me herpes!
Remember: Say it like you mean it.
