Mark brought home this flier from school for a pub event:

and loadz party games

"What is a shag tag? You will be given a sticker with a number on entry to disco bar: An 085 txt number will be provided so you can txt in msg's. For example (number 5 thinks number 10 is hot) The msg's are then displayed on the big screen in disco bar Remember the more drink the better the msg's. Men) uneven numbers woman) even numbers"

Apparently you also have to be drunk when you write the pub's promotional material. But seriously, let's think about the premise of this for a second. SHAG TAG PARTY. Get tagged, get shagged. Mark says that it's a brilliant idea. I agree. But we both agree it's brilliant and yet totally disgusting. On the other hand, it's refreshing that it just strips away all pretenses of what a bar really is: a place where people go to get laid. But the tagging reference evokes images of cattle being tagged and bred, like we're all just part of this social experiment for the purpose of mating. But at least these people are making a party out of it! A SHAG TAG PARTY


  1. Hmm, that could also get hilariously out of hand:

    "I got the herp from #17 - stay away!"
    "#46 will steal your wallet!"
    "#12 is married. check the ring tan"

  2. I was going to go with "hey I have these parties all the time" but I was too grossed out by the idea to joke.

  3. Hey, my birthday's coming up, arf arf.
