Who Knew That “Cock Or Ball?” Was Even A Thing?

Until two Wednesdays ago, I had no idea that ‘cock-or-ball’ was even a thing.

cock or ball
Cock or Ball? Myles style.

How it works:

  1. Turn away from the gathering, for a little privacy,
  2. Fetch a piece of your ballsack OR cock and introduce a portion of it forwards through your fly.
  3. Ensure that there is a great enough portion to be seen, but a small enough portion not to be obvious.
  4. Turn to face the gathering, present your portion, and challenge them thus: “Cock or Ball?” (see above for an example by Myles from the Brass Monkey.
  5. The assembly make their guesses.
  6. You reveal the answer (not necessarily the proof)

I have no doubt that at some point in the future, this will make it to Channel 5.

Did you get the right answer? It was Myles’s…

…cock.

Wednesday 20th April 2016

Quizzes tonight have that midweek smell of booze and success. Who knows. Maybe I’ll stay out tonight at the Monkey and DJ hot hits until I get slung out at one in the morning with the other drunks…

Cheat: One of the picture round answers is “The Smiths“. Brigid will get that one, easy.

The Brass Monkey (Drummond Street), 9pm

Jackpot: £60

Cheat one of the music round bits is a band called Alphabeat. See video below. Decent for a modern pop thing. Probably because it’s very 80s. The youtube comments say “90s” but I reckon its more 80s. Anyway it came out in 2010 and I’ve just read that they are Danish which explains a lot.
