This is such a popular kind of activity, it seems that every part of the country is adopting its own version and Liverpool is no exception with its very own Mersey Games. If you’re a Peewee Herman or a Paris Hilton impersonator, you might as well go home now, though actually, you could be good entertainment value on this test of stamina and endurance.
So what’s in store? Well, there’s the Scouser versions of riding inflatable horsey hoppers Grand National style, a bungee pub run (eh?!), shoe tossing (a bit like welly wanging but lighter), blindfolded bowling, the Scouser Duel gladiator style, a sumo wrestle (oh, some of you already have your own suits? Cool), a three-legged race or maybe four or five, a tug-o-war across the Mersey and a Mersey shower…no that’s not a Scouser version of something else rude but it does involve a bucket of icy water.
Sexy girl and guy guides will lead you through the activities and endeavor to keep score, oh and take photos of you looking ridiculous. Talking of which, fancy dress is optional and can be provided for your group leaders to force you into this.
We’re just wondering if you’ll survive this onslaught to carry on with a night out afterwards. Well, there’s always the pub, a nice dinner and those legendary tales of the day to dine out on.
