    I've played many a game of Smear the Queer. It wasn't just you. Don't worry.

    Soccer to be named the only recess activity allowed.

    Yeah, we called it Smear the Queer.

    Without knowing what "Queer" meant.

    Our coach tried to get us to call it Tackle The Man With The Football.

    For some reason, that never caught on.

    I was trying to explain to Mrs. tbf the rules of "Smear the Queer" just the other night. I still don't think she gets it.

    And, yes, it's a terrible, terrible name.

    When I first saw the headline about this, I thought it was Tag body spray that was being banned.

    I think it's nutsy but I understand the "why".

    Kid gets a broken arm playing tag and the parents sue the shit out of the school board. (See Slappy's post)

    It should be. That stuff does not smell good.

    We also called it "Smear the Queer," and I didn't understand at age 8 why that infuriated the female gym teacher so much.

    On a side note, I can't recall why anyone ever picked up the ball in that game, and yet, someone always had it. Can someone refresh my memory.

    We called it smear the queer, and it was a grand game that rarely led to injuries and didn't cause harm to any homosexuals. Everybody won.

    If I'm ever the principal of an elementary school, we're playing one game, and one game only, during recess ...

    "Smear the Queer." Thinking about it, the most pointless and time-wasting game ever invented. You take a football and run with it anywhere on the playground until you get tackled. Then you toss the ball to someone else and they run until they get tackled, ad infinitum — until the bell rings and recess is over.
