aka: Carry On Sergeant

Go To

The Carry On film series has enough material in each movie they've released to show recurring themes and jokes that have made their audiences roar with laughter over and over again. There's so much to every Carry On film, you could make a drinking game out of it!

  • Drink whenever innuendo and/or a double entendre is used.
  • Take a drink whenever a supposed alternate title that appears in the movie's opening credits is either a terrible pun or a terrible innuendo. Be sure to do that with every "title".
  • For Carry On Behind, drink whenever Professor Anna Vrooshka's words are misinterpreted by other characters.
    • Take two shots if the misinterpretation is innuendo.

Hawtrey's character's claim of only ever sleeping in the same room with someone else when he was "sharing a room" with Kenneth in university, as well as his annoyance of "having to sleep with a woman" from Carry On Again, Doctor).
