this word has been introduced as a replacement for door knob as the door knob game has escaladed to become too famous a game that it is no longer interesting. therefore, now if someone is unfortunate enough to be caught short and does not utter the word safety before someone says mackrel, then they are truely and utterly fucked! :D
Oli: Oh yeah??? MACKREL!!!
Henry: Oh fuck me. This isnt good.
Oli: (pound pound pound!)
Ed: hey guys what's going on?
Oli: I got Henry on Mackrel!
(pound pound pound)
*10 years later*

Oli: Well done... ^o)
Oli: (pound pound pound)
Oli: Oh! he appears to have shot and killed himself... oh dear!
