We play "Throw the worm over the wall" quite lot . It goes well with a session of "Toss the slug over Mr. Pratt's garden".

Along with that other perenial childrens game "Slide the worm down Grandpa's Gullet When He's sleeping in a deck chair in the Garden".
It is wise not to use too fat a worm as this can cause, in people of a certain age whose swallowing reflex no longer works as well as it did, the uncoscious desire to choke.

I was always informed that Skip Welsh involved not letting the teacher know your friends were smoking behind the bus shelter, when you chose not to participate.

Or is there a more fun version I was unaware of?
