Best CRAPPPS memory: A while ago, son 1 (Chris) and son 2 (Richard) were sharing a part and took son 3 (Robert) in tow. Towards the end of the night they managed to talk Robert into doing the last pub of the night. He did not know the words but was told that he should go in, mouth the words and they would say them for him, standing behind him.
In he went, opened and closed his mouth like a goldfish to the sound of silence. The other two were in the bar next door sniggering fit to bust. Brotherly love?
