Wee Bologna Man

(A folk game of Scotland for several players)

Players stand in circle around Wee Bologna Man, who chants:

I’m the Wee Bologna Man!
Always do the best you can
To follow the Wee Bologna Man!

Wee Bologna Man then pretends to climb stairs or do some other action, and players must imitate him. If anyone doesn’t, he is out of game.

Wee Bologna Man repeats rhyme and changes actions faster and faster until only a few players are left. Then he chooses one of remaining players to take his place, and he and everyone else get in circle, and game begins again.
