One thing we don’t mention as often as we should is that our face in hole boards aren’t made of chipboard, wood, cardboard, or anything else that can absorb water and get damaged. In fact they are made of lightweight, waterproof PVC foamex board – which means they are weatherproof and can be soaked at will – as will happpen when you’re having a wet sponge throwing frenzy!
Any of our boards can be used for a wet sponge throwing contest – we’ve even had teachers get sponged at a school open day. But here is an example that was created to lambast everybody’s favourite ‘villain’: the high street estate agent. Boo! Hiss!
To promote their online estate agency, our customer Sellmyhome.co.uk are running a campaign in which a high street estate agent stands in front of a house he has just sold and says ‘You just paid for my new Porsche! Cheers!’.
Throwing things at a figure of ridicule is a time-honoured English tradition. Our face in hole boards are also referred to as Aunt Sally boards. The original Aunt Sally game was played in pub gardens and fairgrounds dating back to the 17th century. People took turns to throw sticks at a wooden head with a clay pipe in its mouth. The winner was the one who broke off the clay pipe. The wooden figure was called ‘Aunt Sally’ in what was really a pretty mean game, but it was long before political correctness so we can let them off.
So don’t forget: the fact that our boards are waterproof not only means they can stay out in the rain without damage, but also that you can stage a wet sponge throwing contest! What’s not to like?
There are still a few months of warm weather left, so order your wet sponge board soon for your next event!
