Brits Say: Wear Goggles Before Bobbing for Apples

The Nanny State is alive and well in Blighty with a suggestion that kids should wear goggles for eye protection whilst bobbing for apples:

He recommended disinfecting water containers, using bottled mineral water and turning on lights so you can see what you are doing.
