Meaning of split the kipper, splitsey

split the kipper, splitsey means: (1) kicking a person in the testicles while two people held each leg akimbo (2) a game played by "big lads." It involved standing facing each other, about 3 - 5 feet apart, on a grassy area and taking a knife (usually a pen-knife), which you would then throw at your opponent's feet. He would have to (without walking) plant his foot where the knife landed and pull it out of the ground without falling over. He would then throw the knife at YOUR feet and you would have to do the same. The first person to flinch or fall over when trying to retrieve the knife was the loser. It was basically like a game of Twister, but with the added thrill of possibly being wounded included.
