Lap-dancing and Whip Nae Nae: Take Me Out Hull returns
Let the Yorkshire see the pudding
Hearts were fluttering and cheeks were blushing at last night’s sensational Take Me Out event, held in Asylum and organised by the Raising and Giving Society in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust – but were we fluttering and blushing for the right reasons?
We spoke to third year drama student Meg, one of the “flirty dozen”, just before and asked what would be keeping her light on: “A good sense of humour is so important – love a guy who can make me laugh. I’m not interested in anyone who takes himself too seriously because that’s just no fun!”
Hosted by the charming and ever-so-slightly controversial Danny Tate (don’t worry Danny, we won’t repeat THAT Madeleine comment), the evening drew in a crowd of over 130 people.
Other talents included a ukulele sing-a-long, an impromptu lecture on sharks (yep) and beat-boxing. Union President Chuby Okide even got involved with a great rendition of the Whip Nae Nae dance.
Aside from the “talents”, the crowd also found themselves audience to some pretty embarrassing stories courtesy of the guys’ friends – all of which were adamantly denied by the guys in question, of course. But tales of kissing sisters at masquerade balls and shitting on the floor while drunk didn’t deter these hardened lasses as every single guy earned himself a date.
We’re not sure whether love has blossomed between our happy couples but Katie Port said of her lap-dancing beau Jacob Hampshire: “We’ve exchanged numbers and maybe a date is on the cards, but we’ll probably just bump into each other in Asylum.”
We spoke to Jennie Watts, Activities Coordinator for the RAG Society, and asked how she thought the evening went:
“In a word… EPIC. Not only did we almost double our fundraising target but we got so many more people involved than we could have wished for.”
The RAG Soc’s next big event will be 8 Out of 10 Cats does Countdown on 12th November in Johnny Mac and Jennie said: “It’s set to be another stormer. We’re all insanely excited.”
