Musical Trousers

A recipe for extensive mending work

The players pace around the circle, eyeing each other and their quarry. They all know the cost of failure, just as they know that one of them must fail. The music plays, an anthem to the brutal competition taking place, a competition that in the end can have only one victor.

And then the music stops.

Time stands still for a moment, as realization sets in, and then all hell breaks loose. Frantically, the players grab at the pile of garments in the center of the circle, desperately fumbling with zippers and buttons, occasionally chasing and snatching from other players. Cloth tears, bodies tumble and fall as they precariously balance on one foot and then the other, or else attempt the difficult but time-saving "jumping entry." When the dust settles, everyone is wearing trousers--some clutching over-large tent-like trousers around their waists, others with too-small pairs pulled up to their knees, but one poor soul has no trousers, and must now sit on the sidelines and wait, shivering, in his underwear.

A pair of trousers is removed from the pile, and the music starts again...

       Hilarious idea. I love the drama of it all.

       So everyone is running around in underpants.   

       I suppose the habitually undie-less would be allowed to participate, too.   

       More fun to watch.

       Can I suggest you copyright musical <any clothing> before the HB is swamped with "musical bras" etc? Funny idea. Amusing anno of the day award to [thumbwax].

       musical bras: excellent. all orchestras should have a bras section.

       wouldn't a G - string section be rather limited musically UB? it would be a pain in the arse... hmmm

       I don't get it. Would you have to start out with no pants on? How about this instead:   

       Play regular musical chairs, where there's one chair too few, and whoever doesn't get a chair has to take off their pants and stand in the middle.   

       You take out a chair and play again, and whoever doesn't get a chair has to give their pants to the person who lost the first round. So now you have one person semi-naked, and another wearing someone else's pants. I think you can see where this is going.
