Party pieces ?

With the holiday season upon us and it's round of office and family parties, I'm curious to hear what party pieces the talented participants of BW roll out to entertain their peers.
Do we have any spoons or bones players, gurners, impressionists, 'Brentesque' dancers, monolgue reciters or contortionists? The white-eared elephant trick does not count BTW!

I can do an interpretation of a light aircraft lost in fog and trying to land, or if the floor is clean, a rasher of bacon being fried in a skillet.
I was thinking of trying to emulate Jack Gilford's 'split pea soup coming to a furious boil' but I can't find a vid-clip to copy and I suspect a lined, rubbery face would be requisite.

I think you're confusing the birth of Christ with the Gong Show. We usually just sit and drink until the most inebriated person breaks out in song, which will invariably focus on the evils of the British Empire.
This year however we might give the Feats Of Strength a whirl.

'The birth of Christ'- that sounds promising. I'm thinking likely props for starters would be a watermelon, some squirty ketcup and a quantity of plastic sheeting......

I always say 'cheers' to Jesus on Christmas--he gets me a day off work.

That's a good one. I think the Mother Mary Pinata is rather harsh, though.

Oh yeah, I also used to do a great fire-eating stunt with a can of butane refill and a Zippo but after I flambeed several folks hair (including my own) I gave up on that.

I used to do the same with plain old disposables. Be careful to push the flaming gas out of your mouth far enough to clear your nose. Burning nose hairs don't smell good -- and they don't smell good for a long time.
