Drunk challenges, just say no. By Paul McDougall

I have drunk many times over the years. I've probably drunk all the drinks, or snorted or one time after watching Kevin n Perry I took vodka in the eye after being challenged. This is what happens when I am drunk...I won't back down when I should really know better but the vodka always seems to get its on way.

I have climbed scaffolding, leaped over statues, headbutted a wall, woke up in another country...You know just the usual however my most painful experience would happen when I was back visiting friends in my old home town of Stirling.

The night began like any other, talking utter nonsense while consuming less than average priced vodka that tasted like paint stripper. We went out partied, drunk, danced and attempted to (unsuccessfully) talk to girls.

We had an 'afterparty' which is completely the opposite of how glamorous it sounds, believe me. We got back and the music was turned on...

Then... "Here Paul I dare you to grab that CACTUS" and there it was, the challenge.

I should have said no, but how could I?

I grabbed it and let out a huge YELP! everyone fell about laughing at first my yelp and then as they watched me remove every last prick from my hand.

I thought I had removed every little prick until I went to the toilet, which after holding 'it' I let out another yelp to everyone's amusement.

Kids, just say no.
