One popular game at school was football keepy ups, trouble was, we didn't call it that, for some inexplicable reason i don't fully understand, the game was known as banana split.

I remember that one as well. A bit unbalanced when the curbs are different heights, but we managed.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

There's West heath, Small heath, Kings heath, Balsall heath, Druids heath, Walkers heath, Highters heath, Washwood heath, Short heath and Gibb heath.

Theres places that aren't called heath here, but there are many heaths. Too many heaths. Please save us.

I remember we would all play Aki 123 but no one would actually have a clue what was going on.

British Bulldog was by far my favourite. Absolutely brutal game and could get genuinely epic in the playground when half the school was involved.

we had a multi-level planter in our playground, about 2/3rds of the way across the length of the space. like this but massive:

it made bulldog epic because you could hide in the bushes, do epic dodges over and around it.

Doesn't Bart sing Jingle Bells Batman Smells in the very first episode of the Simpsons?

Haven['t watched the video past the part with the guy singing it.
Uncle Billy lost his willy on the motorway is what we sang here. Though I never heard anyone say M4 Motorway.
