THIS IS A GAME IN WHICH A CHILD ENCIRCLES HIS THUMB
AND FOREFINGER. IF HE MAKES ANOTHER CHILD LOOK AT
THE CIRCLE WHILE HE PLACES IT ON HIS KNEE OR ARM,
HE QUICKLY SAYS:
MADE YOU LOOK,
DIRTY CROOK,
STOLE YOUR MOTHER'S POCKETBOOK!
AFTER SAYING THIS, HE WAS ENTITLED TO HIT THE OTHER
CHILD IN THE ARM. IN ORDER TO PROTECT HIMSELF, HE
MUST THEN SAY, "NO TAGS BACK." IF HE FAILS TO
DO THIS THE OTHER CHILD MAY HIT HIM BACK.
