This is a question Weird Traditions

Talking with a friend yesterday about school dinners, she suddenly said, "We had to march into the dining room behind the School Band... except on Thursdays." Since all of us were now staring, she qualified this with, "...on Thursdays there was no wind section. It was a tradition."

What weird stuff have you been made to do "because it's a tradition."

Who ate them all??
Further to the Sausage posts below.... I live in West Yorkshire, near a village called Denby Dale.

This tiny village is world famous for it's 'Denby Dale Pie' festival. An annual celebration featuring pies of record breaking size and weight. In 2000 it was 12 tonnes and 40ft long!!!

Anyway, now THAT'S a tradition that brings a gravy stained smile to the faces of many a fat bastard!!..... rumour is that Rick Waller and Michelle McManus are fighting over who gets to open next years event!!!

Shouting at train stations
When we were kids and we went to Cornwall on holiday, everytime we drove through the town/village/place Penryn and went past the train station we would have to shout "Penryn, Self drive, drive youself". Something to do with what the train people used to shout...in the olden days...when my dad was a kid...and used to go trainspotting there...twat.

On the North Circular is Shadbolts who make veneers. Shadbolts is great, because they have a veneer of the week - a large panel on the side of the building, say American Oak or Minty Pine. It is a tradition when driving past to say ooooooh East India Satinwood lovely!

Everytime I go into a new hotel room
1. Eat the free biscuits
2. Check for porn on the TV
3. Got for a huge dump
4. Go to the bar

All in that order and straight away without packing

Invented my own tradition
Back story: bought two melons for the price of one from a supermarket. Ate one - yum, didn't fancy the other and the best before was fast approaching.

Mate of mine moves into new house, I go to visit but I have no gift.

Brainwave! Give him the melon.

Walk in, hand it over, he looks confused and I say
'It's a tradition'

And he seemed quite happy with that. Hope it catches on.

I re-write the songs
During first year at uni I started a tradition/competition of changing the words to crap songs so they included the phrase "Fisting" wherever possible

my favourite was probably "I Will Survive" with its new: "I've got all my life to live, and I've got both my fists to give, and I will fist...yes I will FIST"

Holly Valence's "Kiss" became "Fist" with appropriate hand actions at the chorus "tonight you're gona get my *fist fist* "

the Divinyls probably cracked me up most though..."I don't want anybody else, when I think about you I FIST MYSELF ooh ohh"

try it out yourself next time you hear a cheesy/crap songs at a club/pub/wedding reception
