A little Comic Relief

The annual or bi-annual charity appeals are always fun, but also somewhat predictible as to what we’ll end up seeing.  So, whilst I urge you to donate,  you can also have a bit of fun whilst watching.

So here’s the rules of the drinking game we’re playing by:


The rules are simple:
Define your own measure,  be it a shot,  finger’s width or even a whole glass.

One Measure
– A disease is mentioned
– An African Child is seen with a fly on its face
– Every time a celebrity does something ‘exciting’
– A giant cheque is produced
– A celebrity holds an African child
– A celebrity crys
– The Phone Number is read out
– Man dressed as a woman, or a woman dressed as a man

Two Measures
– The total so far is read out
– We see the phone call takers up BT Tower
– When the guest presenters change
– When the presenters look confused because they don’t know what they’re going to next
– If we’re shown a picture of BBC TV Centre

Three Measures
– When the presenter runs his/her fingers along the screen as the number is read out.
– When someone mouths the number at the back of shot
– When someone makes the ‘phone call’ symbol
– News Presenters doing something ‘wacky’
– When an African child is made to wear a red-nose

Four Measures
– Wogan or Pudsey Appears

Penalties:
Penalties require a CR donation
– Spillage – Β£1
– Fall Over – Β£1
– Vomit – Β£5
– Pass-out – Whatever you can shake out of their wallet/purse.

Remember Kids, Drink Responsibly,  as little African Kids often can’t.   Give Generously!
