Boggle Shots are a practice which originate from Boston, Lincolnshire. The first recorded Boggle Shots occured centuries ago, when locals realised their Winter supplies of Malibu had all been imbibed during many furious sessions of Cluedo.
In an attempt to intoxicate themselves, locals would shake a box full of lettered cubes around, then allow themselves three minutes to write down as many words using adjoining letters as possible.
At the end of the allotted time, contestants tallied their scores. The contestant with the lowest score was ordered to take a Boggle Shot - namely a good measure of a cheap Archers Schnapps substitute. The winning contestant could nominate any other member to take another.
In some cases, contestants were unaware of the Malibu drought, and upon knocking back the substitute schnapps suspected foul play.
Side effects can include; temporary addictions to Marmite on toast, the urge to dance to Smash Hits radio, rolling over in your sleep and lying on other contestants, and being so "parched" that downing a pint of water and lime cordial seems positively divine.
"Dale just sent me back the message I sent to him last night. I told him I have AIDS, and nothing else was spelt properly. It didn't even make any sense!
I must have been sucking at Boggle Shots last night."
