"Knocky Door Neighbour" is a funny one. Depending on where you live in England it also could be "Knocky Nine Doors" or "Knock Down Ginger."
I'm from Scotland. You got fed up knocking down Gingers after a while.

There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

Definitely played it a lot Block 1 2 3. Lampost was home and if if made it back first you could either save yourself or everyone.
We called that 40-40 save all.
Unfortunately we did sing the song:
Eenie Meenie Miny Mo
Catch a n..... by his toe!!!!
Never thought what it meant.
That's odd we always sang "nipper".
We always sang "knicker" which made no sense at all at the time. Later I obviously realised what the original rhyme was. Thankfully times had moved on even in notoriously un-PC 1970s England.
It had turned into “tiger” by the late 70s/early 80s in SC

Tiger in the 90s. I remember a parent volunteer trying to steer us off the rhyme around grade one or two.

Not in Saskatchewan. :disshame: I grew up with the slur names for Brazil nuts and liquorice babies, too. Japanese Mandarin oranges were also predictably shortened.

Yeah we were encouraged to change to ‘tigger’ as opposed to ‘tiger’. That was when we realised we were using a bad word 🙄

The Banana Split chant became the chant of choice anyway 😊

Can’t wait to find out “one potato two potato” is anti-Irish.
