Was this just a regional thing, or did others here play this game in school? Just curious how commonly known this game is. Anybody not heard of it?

We played it down here in The South.
"Everything's so clear to me now: I'm the keeper of the cheese and you're the lemon merchant. Get it? And he knows it.
That's why he's gonna kill us. So we got to beat it. Yeah. Before he let's loose the marmosets on us."

If you're talking about sex, then yes, we did that at my school.

Otherwise, no clue.

No, I'm not talking about sex. Maybe there are different penis games though? How did your penis game work Railhead? Mine involved yelling.

We didn't yell, just casually threw it out -- sometimes in a repetitive crescendo.

Yes, I have two childhood friends who still play it but its one upmanship has evolved into where only historic/world landmarks count.

From what I am told the winning individual leads with the Parthenon in Athens while we were all there for a wedding last year.

Our goal was not to emphatically draw attention -- just speak pseudo normal to see who overheard us and watch their reaction (kind of like we had turrets).

I'm in the same boat as Atheist-I'm a bit older but grew up in the same area.

Perhaps a general synopsis of "the game" would help us all understand what you're talking about.

Played it out here both in the Bay Area, and in Central Valley (Sacramento, Stockton).

From urbandictionary:

the penis game
A game played by teenagers when either bored or desperate for attention. The game is played with two or more people. It starts out with someone whispering the word, "Penis," and it keeps getting louder from there until the word is being shouted.

Turtle my son, I have no idea what the masses consider cool, I march to the beat of a different drummer. I like what I like (ointment, Johnny5, oatmeal, the usual suspects), and that's that. We make our own reality, turtle. In mine, what I like is cool because it's cool to me, and I'm far advanced from regular society so what I think goes, lickety split. Free yourself from the confines of regular society and you'll be a better, more liberated person turtle777. Ironically, this is also pretty cool.

I haven't made up my mind about the penis game because it is not a game I partake in regularly, but it doesn't really matter whether or not is officially considered cool, because if I partake in it that makes it cool for me, and by extension everybody else. Get it?

Some students played it in my study hall last year... except when you catch the first person, they don't find it as fun.

In the UK we had a kids TV show where the presenters played exactly this game in public places except using the word bogies (our word for snot). For a while you couldn't go anywhere without hearing kids screamin bogies at the top of their voices

I had never heard of it until I saw 500 Days of Summer. Lived in New Jersey until I was 10, and Arizona until I was 21.
