Team Name Bonus Point – Week of 3 December 2023

You’ve either done it, you’re going to do it, or you’ve done it and haven’t realised how cringy it was.

For your team name this week, we want you to tell us the cringiest thing you’ve ever done to impress a crush.

Pretended I liked Twilight.

Attempted a skateboard trick and wound up with a concussion.

Learned to speak Chinese. She was Korean.

Got a friend to punch me hard enough to give me a bruise so I could say I won a fight.

Any cringeworthy things you’ve done will get you a bonus point.

Have an interesting week.

So use your team name to suggest the worst places to go.
