The main points:

  • You will get a free dinner and “some drink”. (Note: some, not loads.)
  • You have to be small.
  • You have to have your own teeth. This is non-negotiable.
  • You must be single unless your other half is okay with you being tagged in Facebook photos at a wedding with literal strangers.
  • You must be able to sustain a conversation about cows. (“What’s the deal with cows, eh?”)
  • You have to be down with the “holding hands crack”.
