She also told me that the Devil was whipping his wife when it rained with the sun shining, and she never explained why old men in cars would want to give me candy for free. > And what do you call it when a bunch of kids pile on top of >each other? --Dangerous. We used to do this when I was a child in San Antonio, Texas, but I don't remember any specific term for this horrible game except for maybe "pile on." There was nothing worse than being on the bottom breathing dust and fearing suffocation. I struggled mightily to escape this game whenever someone hollered "PILE ON!"
