2. little Spree
3. the men went to drink

Demonstrate to the audience what a birl sounds like ... and then make it a drinking game, where everyone takes a sip at every "birl" as you play MacGregor's Salute.

They can sober up a little in the latter varitions, with a few last sips in there at the very end!

To your list I would add "The Bicker"----which is "the beaker" or drinking vessel.
