The Stag-Do. Always guarded as a close secret amongst men, it is renowned for being a moment in every man’s life that he is sure to never forget. And that is when the inevitable pranks played by the groom’s friends go right in the first place and everyone comes away unharmed! You would think that would be a relatively simple thing to do. But then where is the fun in that?! So to celebrate the release of The Knot on DVD, (from 4th February) we have compiled a list of our Top 5 Stag-Do stories detailing when things don’t go exactly to plan! Grooms up and down the country beware!
RUN, RABBIT, RUN!
Let’s face it! The groom will inevitably end up either tied or handcuffed at some point during the night. Whether it be to a tree or a dwarf, (like the JLS lads did to fellow band member, Marvin Humes) the groom should expect to become part of a twosome for the night. And yet, we have come across an instance in which one groom’s friends took things one step further. After stripping the groom naked, the lads then tied him to a tree, leaving him there with nothing but the effects of the little surprise they had slipped into his food earlier: laxatives!
So even though the future missus might ban strippers from the party, we understand that not every groom can necessarily control what his buddies will arrange for the night’s festivities. More often than not, someone will have booked a stripper as the entertainment and that just can’t be helped if you find out on the night! Just make sure the groom doesn’t end up giving the stripper more than she bargained for as one groom-to-be did when, having clearly had too much to drink, inadvertently threw up all over her. Somehow we don’t think she appreciated that at all!
THAT’S GONNA HURT IN THE MORNING!
Now we all know when men get together for a lads night they are likely to get themselves into all manner of problems. That’s just the nature of the beast! But this story is just beyond our comprehension (and that is saying something when we’ve just heard about a stripper covered in vomit!) Long story short, one groom’s friend got so hammered he actually sat on a beer bottle! Yep, sat on it! Needless to say, the entire stag party wound up spending much of the night waiting with him in A&E. We just hope the bottle wasn’t upright when he landed on it (even if the image of a man with a beer bottle wedged up his nether region is quite funny!)
CLOSE COMFORTS… TO CLOSE
A lot of guys think of getting their buddy a lapdance on his stag night as a gift. It has become somewhat of a rite of passage to do so. But when the groom receives a lapdance whilst blindfolded it can only mean trouble as one groom soon found out when, after removing his blindfold, was relieved to see that his friends hadn’t roped in a male stripper to give him his stag treat. His relief was short-lived however when he realised that he recognised the face behind the ‘disguised’ stripper: his very own sister! Awkwarrrrd!
Perhaps one of the most famous stag party pranks that is both horrifying and hilarious all at the same time comes from a Swedish groom. After being kidnapped by his friends and forced to wear a fake beard for the entire day, the group go about the stag festivities. Eventually deciding to unwind with a trip to the sauna, the groom was surprised by something about his friends upon entering the steamy room. None of them had any pubic hair… and he was still wearing the ‘fake’ beard! Gross!
