  • Under-age binge drinking.
    The heats sort out who can convince the bouncers to let them into the night club.
    Quarters, which 16 can down the greatest number of Blue WKDs (Women's event) or Snakebite & Black (Men's)
    Semis, which 8 can vomit the furthest.
    Finals, who passes out and is taken to hospital for a stomach pump. Last one standing wins gold.

    Not chariots - shopping trolleys! They all have to drink 20 bottles of WKD and the most paralytic climbs in the trolley - the other two take turns to push the trolley around the course, doing change overs every lap or so. The one in the trolley attempts to stop the others by hurling empties and vomiting on the track.

    Underground TaiKwando - the objective is to get a seat in an already full commuter train before it starts off. Points for how many people you can punch or kick in the head on your way.

    You'll notice the booze references all come from the provinces - obviously folks who have never been to Stratford. The drug of choice in East London is more likely to be skunk than Special Brew....

    I propose Bob Crow Archery :twisted: chain every Londoners favourite trade union leader to a post with a long leash and let the bowmen loose on him :lol:

    1000m cycling whinge. The cyclist who complains the most about other road users whilst ignoring relevant and prevailing road traffic laws wins gold.


    ps "I propose Bob Crow Archery chain every Londoners favourite trade union leader to a post with a long leash and let the bowmen loose on him" That should read short leash.

    Stolen wallet relay
  • sicrowsicrow Posts: 791
    uncompetitive track - the rules are you can't win and all the looney lefties will clap and support the fact that everyones a winner and nobody will get left out. The banks on the track will have a max degree of banking of no more than 0.5 degress according to health and saftey rules - it will also help if you have illegally come into the country

    etc etc etc

    Would of course need to be like some olympic events e.g. beach volleyball, which have a mandatory outfit required by all participants. I suggest hoodies, the cheaper the better.

    poetry - most gratuitous use of the word f*ck and derivatives
    spitting and bumblegum spitting
    modern pentathlon (chav version): loudest car stereo in crappest car; fastest delivered abuse; quickest stabbing (team event); 100m purse snatch relay; chosen points category - spitting or vomiting.
    dog handling, with points for setting a pit bull on someone & getting it to censored on footpaths on command
    Orienteering: pedestrian attempts to move quickly across a tricky route, filled with other pedestrians, bikes, road works, security incidents, bums asking for money, charity collectors (time points gained if you can punch one out), busy roads with heavy traffic and so on. Will also have some snakes and ladders features, e.g. an option of taking the tube or train with the possibility of having a signal or points failure or wildcat strike; or cycling but where every driver is out to get you. Must complete route in fastest time.

    Special police only event: shooting. first shoot someone in the head 7 times (victim will be supplied by event, China has a surplus of executions this year), challenge is to cover it up with most outrageous lies that then can't be sourced back to you.

    I doubt that anynoe could do better than Olympic It's a Knockout. Sport, competition and hilarity!

    Given that were now a lads mag culture we could get the Daily Sport to organise it and call it 'It's a Knockers-out'!

  • People in Wembley arent allowed to train for the Spitting events. As there are signs on Wembley High Road asking people to "KEEP WEMBLEY CLEAN PLEASE DO NOT SPIT ON THE PAVEMENT". No Im not kidding.

    Although Im sure they would clean up in the riding on the pavement while smoking a spliff on a squeaky cross chained (presumably) stolen MTB.
