Regular readers of the West End Whingers will know that they rarely stray from their eponymous beat, being strictly Zone 1 Oystercard holders.
So the idea of travelling all the way to Edinburgh (which is apparently in Scotland) to sit through yet more theatre is quite unthinkable. But this year could be different.
The Whingers have been inspired by fellow blogger Andrew Field who reveals at his Arcades Project a quite marvellous drinking game to play with the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2007 programme which was published a couple of days ago.
Here’s how it starts:
Get booze ready and open your fringe programme to a random page. Every time you hear any of the following you take a drink:
1) ANY THREE NOUNS IN A ROW (eg. A tale of romance, intrigue and danger) – 1 drink
+ IF TWO OF THESE ARE METAPHYSICAL AND ONE PHYSICALl (eg. a tale of love, life and bathroom slippers) – 1 drink
And so it goes on.
Brilliant stuff and quite enough to make the Whingers re-consider their policy on the whole Edinburgh business. Read the whole thing here. Don’t just read, do. And send us some pictures of the results please.
