Right. I'm going to have to Google this. If after googling this is a load of bollocks expect a negative rep with some choice words.

I've been asked to be in a team in July - not sure anyone actually knows the rules?

To be honest I thought it was like 'Mornington Crescent'

And the Wikipedia entry linked to above didn't give you any further clues as to its provenance and validity? FFS :facepalm:

I have tried flonking the dwile, or what purported to be flonking the dwile. The version I played involved sopping wet beer towels and sticks I recall.

Quite tricky, and I'm not convinced I was playing by proper rules, if indeed there are any proper rules.

But it was part of a very enjoyable evening playing traditional and silly games :happy

Dwile Flonking sounds like what you do to a cheap whore.

as in "I gave her a right Dwile Flonking!"

Pah! Wussy Southern thing. For a Real Man's (and Real Woman's) beer related activity there's The Oxenhope Straw Race (http://www.strawrace.com/join-the-fun/):


The Course:

Teams of two (male, female or mixed) start at the Waggon & Horses Inn, walk or run 1 mile to the Bay Horse Inn where a bale of straw is picked up (female teams may carry 1/2 bales if wished), and head up to the finish at the Dog & Gun, some 1 1/2 miles up a gentle hill, via the Social Club, the Lamb Inn and the former Shoulder of Mutton. A pint of beer (or half-pint for female teams) is drunk by teams at each stop.

It is apparently quite exhausting for those who take it seriously.
