It’s a health and safety nightmare

It’s THAT time of year again and, well, you can’t be too careful, can you? Thanks heavens so many headteachers have seen sense and banned the playing of conkers from school playgrounds. Not only have you got the whole nut allergy thing going on there (er … are conkers nuts?), but clearly, you could put someone’s eye out, not to mention the danger of nasty abrasions from the string.

In fact, I’m so concerned about the risks of playing outdoors at all that I’m going to post a link to a video clip that will, hopefully, keep you and your loved ones safe while playing table tennis – and also assist you in attaining champion status. BUT the authors of this blog accept no liability … mumble mumble…blah blah…small print small print

  1. Have never heard of conkers before!
    Sounds like great fun. Having read over the Wikipedia article, my husband wants to give it ago. We’ll have to make a substitution as there are no chestnuts in our part of Canada.
    Do you think frozen moose poo would do the job?

  2. frozen poo of any kind would add a welcome thrill – particularly during a thaw. i’ll send you come conkers – they literally fall on our heads here as we walk along – ‘conkers are falling on my head’ (tuneless hum)

  3. I think the goggles are a great innovation. Now, not only do you have the other conker to smash against, but you can hit the goggles too. Double bonus!
