I can't believe this is on wikipedia

I'm hoping that all you devoted goonheads are already well learnt in the drinking game that is good of fortune. If you are not, here is a rundown courtoesy of wikipedia, which I was browsing today for drinking games instead of studying for the hsc.

Goon of Fortune
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Goon of Fortune, also known as Wheel of Goon (derivatives of the television game show Wheel of Fortune), is a drinking game that originated in Australia. Some might claim it is one of the most quintessentially Australian games, as it takes advantage of two Australian inventions: cask wine (goon), and the Hills Hoist.

The game is played by pegging up one full internal bag of cask wine (goon) taken from a bag in a box to each of the four corners of a Hills Hoist (rotary clothesline).

Once the bags have been pegged, the contestants stand around the Hills Hoist, and it is spun around. As it spins, contestants traditionally shout out "Goon... Of... Fortune!" And when it comes to a halt, the closest contestant to each bag must drink deep of its contents - ten seconds at least.

Whoever is left standing when the bags are empty is declared the winner. The general rules for disqualification are as follows:

* A contestant leaves to urinate.
* A contestant vomits.
* A contestant fails to drink from the bag.
* A contestant passes out.
* A contestant falls over and is unable to stand securely.

In general, a good game of Goon of Fortune contains different types of goon, to give contestants some variety. There should be at least one white wine, one red wine, and one fruity lexia. The fourth bag can be any of the above, although a goon bag of port or sherry (double the alcohol content of regular goon) can be used for enhanced hilarity.

Goon of Fortune has made an appearance in both John Birmingham's He Died With A Felafel In His Hand and its sequel The Tasmanian Babes Fiasco.


So who has played it before? HMM? comment with your stories of hilarity!

Goon, oh my goon.

I love you goon, but it's an abusive relationship. Why do you make me sick to my stomach when i spend too much time with you? Why do you beat my skull from the inside out? Why do you always decieve me, lie to me in your pretty, pretty cask, which promises so much and leaves me so dehydrated? I'm going to have to leave you. The only problem is that i don't know where i left you. Are you in my fridge again? Perhaps somewhere in my bed, where i fell asleep holding you? But i think the most unforgivable crime you've comitted is this mornings. You made me sleep through Yu-Gi-Oh GX. Oh goon, don't you understand how many of the characters from that show i would like to put my penis into? I'm sorry goon, this is the end. Untill we meet again... or you show up in my bed... or fridge..

Where ya bin all mah life?

Woke up hour'n'half past noon,
night before I'd slept through Dune,
feelin like I should be poo'n,
Fuckme! Where'd I leave the goon?

Theres better things I could be do'n,
eatin', sleepin', singin', screw'n,
but the first one is a shoe'n,
off my arse to get some goon.

Sure my liver might be rue'n
I might be gettin fat like Boon,
Fuckin drunken crap buffoon,
at least I've got a box of goon.

so I drink it like a loon,
what if it all ends in ruin?
Box of joy becomes my doom,
at least in hell theres heaps of goon.

But I'm pretty sure it'd be that "dry red" bullshit.

How many people know the children's song "Little Bunny Foo Foo"?

It goes like this:

Little bunny foo foo, hopping through the forest.
Scooping up the field mice and bopping them on the head.

The fairy comes down and tells little bunny foo foo that if you do that
3 more times, I'm going to turn you into a goon.

The song continues until little bunny is, indeed, turned into a goon.

Did you know there is a moral to that story/song??!!

Hare today, goon tomorrow!

best community ever!

wow...I'm suprised I never found this before.

My name is Dan and I like goon.

Just the other day I decided that instead of needing to go to the shops again and again, I would just buy the 4 boxes of goon at once...and then save $3...sweet deal!

and I'm drinking goon right apt

Why have no goon parties ever come about from this site? We really should have one.

Perhaps we should nominate a disgusting pub, sneak in goon bags, and then whip them out at an exact moment so as to offend everyone all at once? I think it could work somewhere really stupid where people like Bazil Zemplas and Chris Mainwearing would hang out, maybe the Llama Bar or Saphire. I would love to break Bazil's nose with a 5 litre Kaiser Stuhl value pack. Or force feed Monica Kos Sunnyvale until she yacks everywhere and ends up pregnant before the end of the night.

Maybe we should all just have a goon appreciation parade through Norhtbridge, flashing our silver handbags around with much pomp and ceremony.

Ideas anyone?
