Sorry I couldn’t/didn’t want to excerpt this article:
MomLogic.com – We’re moms now, but knowing about the latest drinking game could be important for a couple of reasons.
1. We don’t want to look totally out of it in the event that we get a babysitter and go to a restaurant, bar, or party, and encounter one of these games in action.
2. If we have teens, we want to know what the hell they’re talking about if they say they got “iced” last night.
So here is a quick primer to the two drinking games currently on everyone’s lips.
1. GETTING ICED
This is a new boozy gag with buzzy benefits. When you get iced, you get “surprised” with a bottle of Smirnoff Ice placed into your unsuspecting hand, and then you kneel on one knee and down the whole 12-ounce bottle of the super sweet and — despite taste to the contrary — vodka-based beverage. Smirnoff marketing department denies it planted the original idea on brosicingbros.com . But whether it’s a corporate-ploy-turned-gold or just another example of viral speed trending (it’s only about a month old), it’s everywhere. From frats to financial offices to high school parties, people are completely jacked about icing coworkers, friends and now, maybe … moms. If you get iced, try not to think about the 280 calories per bottle while you chug.
2. ARM CRUSHING
To arm crush, you flex your bicep and place your hand on your forehead, then you position a can of beer between your elbow and mouth. Chug-a-lub, Poohbear! No surprise here … women don’t much appear in the research or most of the photos posted on social sites. Arm chugging, as it is claimed to be spearheaded by one Tim Flanigan of Washington D.C., is beer guzzling for the Homer Simpsons-in-the-making.
I get that icing would need an explanation…I mean, it is a drinking game with rules and regulations. But arm crushing? Really? First of all, if you didn’t learn that move your sophomore year at UNH then you should just remain in the dark. And I always thought arm crushing was just someone too lazy to take the extra steps to shotgun a beer or drink it like a person with hands…like a normal human being.
Oh, and if you have kids that are old enough to engage in these activities and you have to read an article to figure out what the fuck they’re talking about, you probably shouldn’t be a parent. I mean, even Momma Mango (both of em) knew about icing and NH Momma Mango is going to be 58 next week. Just sayin…
