The Final Blow

Are You Burping Bubbles, Sir?

Drinkers coming out of a town's pubs and clubs are to be asked to blow bubbles to try and reduce violence. Revellers in Bolton will be handed children's bubble-blowers to channel boisterous behaviour into harmless fun. The blue and orange toys, which double as pens, will be handed out on Saturday nights throughout December.

FOOTNOTE: The Bolton Tea Party.

I have a feeling the bubble blowing campaign might backfire. Y'know?

Oh, and thanks for the invite. I could kill - quite literally - for a shimp on the barbie.

How fun. I would take up drinking for the chance to play...

It should all work fine till the fights start over who can blow the biggest bubble...or over the bubble stuff when a few of them run out...drunks are after all, like children...not only will they fight at the drop of a hat, half the time they're the ones dropping the hat!

Sandi might be right, yet I think this bubble tactic is a splendid idea and "probably" will change the tenor of the late evening into something more fun and childlike. Would be curious to hear some sort of research followup.
