Euro 2012 Drinking Game

by Robbie Knox on June 8, 2012

Euro 2012Euro 2012 kicks off today. That’s brilliant news.

I thought I’d share with you today an excellent way to make dull matches more exciting. It’s called European Championship Drinking Game. You’re probably already familiar with the concept of drinking. This takes it up a notch.

European Championship Drinking Game (ECDG) and it’s older brother World Cup Drinking Game have been played for 14 years now, but since I have a young child, I fear my day’s of wiling away a Denmark v Czech Republic game in a drunken stupor are in the past. So it is with heavy heart that I pass it onto a younger, more alcoholic generation.

You can make it as complicated as you like but the basic set-up is as follows: [click to continue…]


Mental Dog Poo Sign

by Robbie Knox on June 5, 2012

I’ve put this out on twitter in the past but I was just tidying my computer desktop and I found this photo. It’s a sign my wife found on a bin on the Isle of Sheppey (where I grew up). I thought I’d repost it today, as a special gift to the Queen to mark her Jubilee.

Mental Dog Poo Sign

After how many incidents does one write such a sign? Was this a one off or the result of many years of doggy faeces pain? I imagine it must be an ongoing problem if you’re going to go to the trouble of semi-laminating it, and using two different pens to emphasise the opening lines.

I think what I like most about it is the way he over-explains what he’s going to do. Most people would have worked out what he had planned without the clarification “as I don’t have a dog”, but our hero leaves no confusion over what he plans to do. I also like his stated aim of delivering a bucket full of human excrement, a plan that will surely require him to spend at least a week with a slowly filling bucket of waste stinking out his house.

I salute you sir (or madam). I hope the dogs have stopped pooing there.

Oh, and happy Jubilee Queen.


Chewbacca and The Pimp: My Greatest Practical Joke Ever

April 2, 2012

How was your April Fools day? Did you get fooled? Apart from my friend Phil’s fairly convincing “What do you think about Suarez handing in a transfer request?” I wasn’t really targeted. I don’t really try fooling people or practical joking anymore because I know, that at the age of 34, I have already peaked. […]

No, I’m Not Joe Wilkinson

March 20, 2012

I’ve had a lot of lookalikes through the years. Pre-beard these tended to be pretty rubbish (Pat Nevin) with the occasional one that made me think “okay, I can see that” (Louis Theroux when he takes off his glasses.) With the arrival of my beard in 2004 things stepped up a bit. They ranged from […]
