GRONK TRAPPING

Artist

Midshipman
Anyone ever play this game?

Had it down pat so I did. One mega ugly Civvy Nurse whom I used to meet in the Tamar at Crownhill was me GRONK. We would arrange to meet in either Cascades of Boobs/Metric later that night. I kid you not she had more hair on her chest than HAGAR THE HORRIBLE! Had Bucked Teeth and kept Gerbils in her flat. Stank like hell the place did. :D

Normal routine was that everyone would put 50 pence or a quid into a Pint Pot and then it was up to everyone to try and Trap the Uglyiest woman. He who trapped the BESTEST GRONK won.

Unfortunately for me after winning hands down about three times on the trot the blokes sussed out that it was the same GRONK I trapped everytime. So they barred me from the game. Used to go halfs with the civvy nurse when it came to the winnings. And Ten quid was a lot of Dosh in the mid seventies! 10 pence for a pint of Double Diamond. 50 pence for a TAXI back to Seaton/her flat plus a Chinky......Great times so they were!!! :D

Yep grab a grannie , afraid I did, but don't care to remember it to much [fxxxxxxxg nightmares I can tell you],makes me shudder to think of some of them , :roll: :idea: :roll:
 
What's the matter with you lot?
Grab a Granny, Widows Hop, whatever you want to call them, were excellent runs ashore.
Trapping was virtually guaranteed, unless you were really and absolutely monged.
Who cared what anyone looked like.....until the morning anyway!


Thinking about it, even if you were really monged, some horror might take you away to play with. Even that was worth it, if only for the dit value!

They used to be great nights and loads of fun. But the mornings were alwasy a bit concerning, trying to sneak out before the gorilla woke up :)

I also used to find it most amusing when you got on the bus from the married patch in Guz and all the RA's used to give you the once over and wondering whos missus you had been playing cribbage with. ;-)

So very true, especially when you had the daily paper and a pint of milk in your mitt. Don't forget the standeasy dit as well whilst yomping an oggie. :lol:

Yeah the pint of milk and the current bun! Then going down the mess and waking your oppo by wafting your fingers under his nose and introducing him to your new girlfriend!

Oh for the good ole days
