This is a question Family codes and rituals

Freddy Woo writes, "as a child we used to have a 'whoever cuts doesn't choose the slice' rule with cake. It worked brilliantly, but it's left me completely anal about dividing up food - my wife just takes the piss as I ritually compare all the slice sizes."

What codes and rituals does your family have?

*Bu-u-urp* - Arseholes!
No idea where this one started, but it's been in our house for ages. It is the law that all burps must be delivered at the maximum volume possible and immediately followed by a statement of 'Arseholes!'. I blame my mother...

Likewise, the bending down and retrieving of any item dropped on the floor must always, always be accompanied with a loud, pathetic whine as the breath leaves the body on the way down to the object in question.
Everyone in the family is used to this ritual by now, but you don't half get some funny looks when you knock a CD off a shelf in HMV and sound like a loudly-deflating Jimmy Savile picking it up...

Must be a Midlands thing...
My uncle Rowland used to do the same after he gave a belch (and, for all I know, still does).
