We used to play a game called ‘elephant’ in which two boys would bend over butt to butt and clasp hands between their legs. A third boy would bend over at one side of the pair, place his head beneath the joined butts, wrapping his arms around one leg of each boy to form a steady foundation of humanity. Another boy would then run toward the ‘elephant’, and as he arrived, flip himself over with the top of his head down into the notch formed by the three backs and land back to back with the third boy who would hunch his back and try to throw the runner off balance. The runner would of course come down as hard as possible to try and collapse the elephant. I don’t remember the game having any point to it except the fun of the roundhouse play.
