Brown-Bag 2

The Brown Bag Foul in action

A Brown Bag Foul is when a player makes a dirty joke or uses profane language. The penalty for doing this forces the player to wear a brown paper bag over their head for the remainder of the show (occasionally replaced with a Toilet Seat) and/or a loss of points. The audience can also get this foul by giving a dirty suggestion. The reason for the Brown Bag Foul is commonly misunderstood. Most people believe it to be in the case of young people in the audience, which it is used for. However, the main reason is to get the players to think. When a player runs out of ideas for what to say, it is difficult to come up with something unless you come up with something dirty. The Brown Bag Foul removes that option and forces the player to think as hard as they can.
