Hardcore Hopscotch

Oh, what has happened to the simple, innocent game we all played as children? I guess it's true what they say. The world is a much more dangerous place today.

I remember playing some hopscotch. Even as a guy I played a little, but it was mostly watching others play. I don't remember it being quite as extreme as this.

I loved playing hopscotch as a little girl. So did the children in my old neighborhood. I'd come home from work and find the entire neighborhood painted in pastel colors. After drawing their game, they seemed to have gotten a little carried away.

Pretty sure that the world is much more safe today than it was back when kids were forced to play dodgeball with a rusty ball of barbed wire. Also, police do not and have never used chalk outlines, they use the withered bodies of crack addicts to reenact death scenes, everyone knows that.

Haa! Remind me not to play hopscotch with you :P

cops are so wise, aren't they?

Jeanne said...

Would've liked to have played with the first one with a few kids I remember from school!

Adam said...

I find the 2nd really funny, though only because of something similar that happened in House of Cards.

Haha, suicide/murder hopscotch!

I loved hopscotch....but I don't think I'd ever seen "Hopscotch the Real Story" before, thanks for the heads up....hehehehehe

hahaha now that I might be willing to jump for. That's the reason *I* stopped playing hopscotch, my womanly meat bags prevent me from really ever jumping, it's just too dangerous.

I think adding "to the death" significantly boosts the fun value of any activity. Next up : tetherball with a spiked metal ball.

Laughed my arse right off with these!

Australians aren't really into hopscotch. We much prefer a good game of four-square. And after pictures like that I can see why.

Those were funny - maybe that's what happened to the jogger in nNiagara Falls today who jogged into a sinkhole and had to be rescued by the fire dept. - he was playing manhole hopscotch!

Jim said...

Having two older (much older) sisters I got to learn this activity of hopscotch very well. Girls had all the fun!!

I was more of a hang out in my favorite tree and draw and write, kind of kid, than play these other games. But I did laugh at the comics.

Have a spooky day.

That last cartoon is awesome! I did laugh a few years ago when my boss told me about seeing a headline that some teenager who was texting fell into a manhole. I know, I'm going straight to hell.

Silke said...

Hahaha! That third one made me laugh out loud! And it brought back memories of hopscotch - the non-dangerous kind... xoxo Silke
