The first thing that you need to do is to identify your target. Look around for a friend, brother or cousin that you want to unleash the noogie on. Make sure you select someone who does not have a short temper, as things can get ugly while or after you are giving a noogie. The most ideal target would be a friend who may have done something to deserve a noogie.
Once you have locked a target, wait for the right opportunity to give him a noogie. The most ideal time would be the one when the target is most docile and unsuspecting of silly behaviour. This will not only make the noogie more fun, but will also allow you to give the noogie for a longer period of time.
Once the perfect opportunity arrives, silently approach your target from either side and put your forearm and bicep around their head and trap them in a headlock firmly so that their head is held tightly against your ribs. Do not lock your arms around their neck with too much force, as you might end up hurting them seriously. However, do not let your arms relax too much either, as it will make it easier for them to break free of the headlock, thus escaping the noogie.
With their head locked in place, form your free hand into a first and start rubbing their scalp with your knuckles. Do not strike the victim’s scalp with the knuckles excessively. Expect your victim to make a desperate effort to break free of the headlock. Tighten the headlock a little to ensure his efforts are in vain.
Keep rubbing your knuckles across your victim’s scalp for as long as you please or until you can hold your victim’s head in place.
