Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Swazzle swallowing


I also wonder if it was something told as "law" to a trainee, newbie or 
wannabe...part of the cultural humour. I was asked to procure a tin of green 
and red stripey paint from stores as a young trainee theatre technician and 
another was sent down to get a "long weight". A touring crew at an "in 
house" theatre were instructed that a certain pub was "the" bar for 
crews...of course it was a notorious gay bar...If a tradesmen got on our off 
side we would tell them to use what looked like a power point for their 
power tools. Of course it was a dimmer circuit and we would have great fun 
slowing their tools down or turning them on and off at inconvenient 
moments..........all good sledging as we call it.
You can imagine the look on the face of a wannabe swazzler!
