Donkeys, tails and voting!

Which would be the most disappointing way to lose your chance to vote in an election :
  1. a shortage of ballot papers
  2. time ran out 
  3. your name was not on the list of eligible voters
The correct answer is the one you give by closing your eyes and pointing at the screen.

Tweet from the Norwich Evening News:
"One of the returning officers in Thetford saw a father ask his daughter who he should vote for.She closed her eyes and picked a box."

 Pin the Tail on the Donkey

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Pin the Tail on the Donkey is a game played by groups of children. A picture of a donkey with a missing tail is tacked to a wall within easy reach of children.[1]
One at a time, each child is blindfolded and handed a paper "tail" with a push pin or thumbtack poked through it. The blindfolded child is then spun around until he or she is disoriented.[1] The child gropes around and tries to pin the tail on the donkey. The player who pins their tail closest to the target, the donkey's rear, wins.[1] The game, a group activity, is generally not competitive; "winning" is only of marginal importance[clarification needed].
Pin the Tail on the Donkey is suitable for children who are old enough to walk and to know better than to eat the small sharp tacks.
