How to shock, amuse or amaze and team build at the same time From my memoirs I once saw the following enacted in a NAAFI in a land far, far away and copied it with great success. The scene. NAAFI or cookhouse, groups of persons, eating drinking chatting, joshing, usual general riotous behaviour associated with the lower deck. The action. Apparently drunken mate approaches his group, staggers into a chair and is met with much loud banter (attracting attention of those at other tables and the bar) The newly arrived member then announces waah, Im gonna puke and amid much calling for Hughie vomits a stream of steaming stomach contents onto the table. At this point the rest of the group whip spoons from their top pockets and begin to eat the pile of steaming semi digested mush. Result: Much disgust or laughter or general mayhem. I actually saw someone visit vomitsville at the sight of this spectacle. The trick revealed. Of course careful P&P required. All must have a spoon. The drunk buys a cup of hot soup or prepares a hot noodle or similar and hides this in his sleeve or somehow. The puke is actually the perfectly fine hot soup or noodles which the drunkard tips onto the table as he makes the appropriate vomiting noises which some of us have practised and experienced. Give it a try. Works especially well if the Orderly Office is in range. Note: Cross referenced to Why I didnt get commissioned. edited to add: vegetable soup works best (loots of lumps)!!
