Mate versus mate, state versus state

IT SEEMS last year's skirts and shaved eyebrows weren't enough for the boys at K&R Plumbing Supplies because this State of Origin, they've upped the ante again.

With two toads and as many cockroaches, the boys have bets on who will win tomorrow night, but the stakes are higher than ever.

Last year, Blues supporters Wayne Farrugia and Brett Spies had their eyebrows shaved off and paraded around from job to job in dresses - much to the horror of clients who suffered severe psychological damage and are perhaps still recovering.

This year, the losers of game one will have their face painted in the winner's colour for the day, just to shatter their pride a little more. Game two punishment has not yet been decided, but fake nails are being tossed about after a ban was put on mini skirts for obvious reasons.

The losers of the series will have the pleasure of pushing fake poo up the hill with their nose, the ultimate pride-shattering manoeuvre.

"We don't like losing money, but a little bit of pride is all right," Mr Farrugia said.
