Set up the room placing a chair on top of the table in front of the other youth. The youth leader places a paper crown on his head and puts on the robe and shorts - no socks. He then places a ring on his hand and one on his toe, and then sits in the chair. A helper usually another youth leader goes out to collect the first blindfolded youth. When he/she brings the youth back in the room the other youth are chanting oohhh-ahhh...ooohh-ahhh.
The helper then explains to the youth in hush tones that he/she is in the presence of the king and the utmost respect is required. The king says nothing... The helper then explains that the king has asked him/her to come to his presence... In hushed tones the helper explains that it is customery to kneel before the king... the helper guides the youth to the front of the room directly before the king in a kneeling position. The helper then explains that the king has offered his ring to be kissed and it would be a high insult if he/she were to deny his/her wish. There is one requirement though, the youth must not touch the king with anything but his/her lips so...The helper will help guide the the youth's head into position. Once the youth has puckered up the king will place the ring that is on his hand to the lips of the youth. After the kiss the king move his hand to an unseen position and allows the youth's blind fold to be removed. The toe with the ring needs to be clearly visible to the youth since that is what they are thinking they are kissing. The shock on the face of the youth is priceless and reactions will be unpredictable...
(I once had a youth lick the carpet after the reveal) Everyone has a good laugh and the next blindfolded youth is collected)
