Fun for the bald and overweight

2 or more teams with tiolet plungers
  (+51, -2)(+51, -2)(+51, -2)
(+51, -2)
  [vote for,

This sport is a variation on the classic tug of war and involves teams of greased nudists. Each athlete will be armed with a toilet plunger.

The idea is pull opposing team-members over a line using only the plungers. The perfect terrain would be a muddy field.

A variation could involve clothed teams tugging at one nudist who trys to remain standing within a circle.

Similar game from Mad Magazine [csea, Mar 07 2005]


       Suggestion: Drop the fat and bald stuff, the greased nudists with plungers is quite enough to carry this idea.

I honestly don't know which is funnier: what it would look like, or what it would *sound* like.
quarterbaker, May 15 2002

       A tiolet. Viola.   

       Being bald and fat provides more surface area to leech on to?
phoenix, May 16 2002

       Qb's right. The title doesn't really do the idea justice. Although now I'm worried about what type of dreams I might have tonight.   

       "Honey, is that a hickey I see on you?"
"No, dear, I was playing with the boys again..."
RayfordSteele, May 16 2002

       Erm...Sorry, I think I opened the wrong door...Carry on...

       Brilliant. Now think up a good name for it.

       Excellent. Hang on a mo, I'll just shave and grease my body. (Oops, sorry. That was probably too much information)
st3f, May 16 2002

       "Sumo Suck"
pottedstu, May 16 2002

       Crouching Baldy, Hidden Plunger.
stupop, May 16 2002

       Oohh. Unpleasant mental image. Cheers [stupop].
mcscotland, May 16 2002

       "come on boys, its a lovely hot day, lets play Sucko"
mymus, May 16 2002

       Hmm. Do-it-yourself liposuction. Good idea.
DrBob, May 16 2002

       I'm thinking this needs a Scottish-sounding name. It just sounds like it was invented by a Scot and belongs within the Highland Games. For the ultimate mental picture, add a plasma ball helmet on the fat, nude guys with plungers. Might this be 'suck your lint' epitomized?   

       What percentage of professional leagues would be made entirely of plumbers?
RayfordSteele, May 17 2002

       Come on guys, you totally missed plung-o-war.
AfroAssault, May 17 2002

       <Scottish accent>Suckeroo</Scottish accent>
hippo, May 17 2002

       It is for moments such as this (beer spraying out my nose) that I continue to frequent the HB. "Suckeroo"! Ye cats and little fishes!
Dog Ed, May 17 2002

       Would it be at al possible for the plungers to come off, sending the pulling time flying in a comical stylie?
NickTheGreat, Jun 17 2002

       Doesn't this idea belong in the Public: Sport category?
XSarenkaX, Jul 03 2002

       You could have defenders armed with large paddles, whacking the plunger-ers to get them to release the greased baldy.
sexymonkey, Jul 04 2002

       how about "suck 'n tug"?
miss fern, Jul 08 2002

       What would happen if somebody were to accidentally "plunge" anothers anal sphincter? -It sounds too dangerous.
ImBack, Aug 20 2002

       Given the size of the average plunger, and the amount of wriggle room around most people's anal sphincter, I think the term "accidentally" is more than somewhat misplaced.
DrCurry, Aug 20 2002

       This was one of my favourites beforethe crash. Glad to see its till around. Here - have a recycled bun +

       Category suggestion: sport tug of war.
bungston, Mar 07 2005

       Wow, brilliant! My shrimp goes towards changing the title to plug-o-war as per AfroAssult's suggestion.
narphorium, Mar 07 2005

       Your "shrimp?"
bristolz, Mar 07 2005

       Le cwassont does look a little shrimp-like if you squint your eyes just so.
Soterios, Mar 07 2005

       bris, it sounds like you are denigrating his shrimp. shrimpsize is important, no mistake.   

       I shrimp therefore...gawd its been a long day.
po, Mar 07 2005

       it still has tiolet in the summary - I cannot vote +
po, Mar 07 2005

       "Mad" magazine popularized some form of this game in the late 1960s - early '70s involving plungers and swim fins, and a muddy field. Can't recall the name.   

       [later] Aha, 43-man squamish! [link]
csea, Mar 07 2005

       //Le cwassont does look a little shrimp-like if you squint your eyes just so.//

When I was new here, that's what I thought they were for several weeks until someone told me what they were.
AfroAssault, Mar 08 2005

       Hah- where the croissant is mistaken for a *shrimp*!! I laughed so hard.
xandram, Nov 16 2010

       Could add a whole new dimension to Nude Jello Wrestling ...

       The alert service here is really pants. Why was this idea not brought to my attention sooner?   

MaxwellBuchanan, Nov 16 2010

       Because the prospectus for the IPO isn't signed off yet.
8th of 7, Nov 16 2010

       There are approx 2.2 billion people in the world who did not exist at the time this idea was posted. Not one of them will ever reach its magisterial heights.
calum, Jun 17 2021

       How did this not get re-named Suckeroo though. Great to see it re-surface, thanks to [calum]. A nearly-20-years-late [+]
Frankx, Jun 17 2021

       To quote the late, great and greatly missed [MaxwellBuchanan] "Why wasn't this idea brought to my attention earlier?"   

       Great idea even though I'm only half qualified being bald but not fat. Perfect for the Halfbakery.
AusCan531, Jun 18 2021

       Yay, hiccies for everyone, without having any hiccy fun.
wjt, Jun 22 2021

       In 2002, when this thread started i was neither bald nor overweight. Oh how times change. Sign me up!
saedi, Jun 25 2021

       I'd never admit it.   

       Can the participants in this sport wear masquerade masks?
sninctown, Jun 25 2021

       Domino masks might also work.
pertinax, Jun 26 2021

       I'm still laughing at the shrimp/croissant controversy.
