Tombola.

It used to greatly amuse me listening to the tombola callers on board. The ones that I can recall are as follows. All the eights-bollocks,or knackers. Sometimes the bishops bollocks. Five O-change hands. Legs 11, followed by 'Wipe the feckers'. Six and five-Old age pench. Let's have more from you, shipmates.

Sumo. Lots that I have not heard before, but followed through number2 is a classic for me. Chuckling away to myself over that.

Something I would love to see is jack at an old dears bingo hall as the caller! That would without doubt make me wet myself laughing, looking at the shocked faces and maybe some walking out in disgust.
