In Canada this game most often takes place in the wintertime at the end of a nice patch of ice. Since everyone is sliding on the ice one right after the other, if one kid slips and falls, those behind him will fall on top of him and then all the other young boys add to the pile.


"Nigger Pile!"

I've been informed that before my time--when racism was much less an issue--this was often the name of the game.


"Sport Hump!"

An ugly variation of the game that was played in my residence. When it was someone's birthday a mattress would be thrown to the floor and a bunch of 18 to 20 year-old boys throw the birthday boy on the mattress and all jump on top of him.

Needless to say, I did my time in residence and now proudly live on my own.
