A game that teaches the idea of possession in theater. One person creeps around the circle looking for someone to give the meat to. When he/she places the meat behind the chosen individual, he/she yells SLAP THE BUTCHER. The person with the meat then chases the butcher and tries to slap him/her. It is played in Drama classes around the world.
Me: We played an amazing game of Slap the Butcher in Mr. G's class today.
