Customs at wakes

In this part of the country long ago when a person died the men would go to the wake and stay all night and they often played games during the night. A game they used to play was called "Buboso". This is how they used to play it. Two men get together and one would get a bit of a stick and one man would hit the other on the hand and say "Buloso" and the other would answer "Buloso Sir. What's your oats a peg". The rates of the market from twopence to fourpence from fourpence to sixpence from sixpence to eightpence to tenpence all evenses, no odds". Buloso. Buloso is a man of honour, and fame and he earn his bread by this innocent game and if he doesnt do what his is told must be bet when ever he is bold.
