A simple solution.

I was watching breakfast news yesterday and one of the presenters was announcing one of those stories that you always hear at the this time of year (along with 'how to not put on forty kilos at Christmas time), 'And coming up we have tips how to survive the office Christmas party.'

Call me crazy, but I thought it was quite simple, 'Don't get banjaxed and make a twat of yourself.'


Or, 'Don't get banjaxed if a jolly good banjaxing is likely to make you make a twat of yourself.'

I've been on both sides, and being sober(ish) and enjoying the entertainment beats the hell out of getting munted and being the entertainment! Not to mention that the hangovers are much more manageable...

Yeah, becoming the entertainment generally comes at the cost of your dignity. Watching someone else become the entertainment - priceless.

'Don't get banjaxed and make a twat of yourself.'

That is quite simply one of the best quotes I've ever seen. Thank you for a laugh! :)

At our Christmas party 3 years ago I got turkey stuck in my throat & had to be Heimliched (don't know how to spell it, never had to type it before).

After the meal I just got banjaxed anyway, since it's hard to top that in the making a twat of yourself stakes.

A pleasure MBR!

Hey Tinman, I don't know anyone who has been Heimliched before! Did the turkey come out at about 100k/hour and land somewhere really inappropriate? Like somebody's wife? (As it would in the movies.)

Nah, LK, it's actually quite disappointing, it just kind of drops out.

Which is a pity, coz at our Christmas party all the young ones dress up to the nines and there were a whole lot of interesting places it could have lodged.
