Two Drinking Games Moms Need to Know About

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

We're moms now, but knowing about the latest drinking game could be important for a couple of reasons.

Smirnoff Ice

1) We don't want to look totally out of it in the event that we get ababysitter and go to a restaurant, bar or party and encounter one of thesegames in action.

2) If we have teens, we want to know what the hell they're talking about ifthey say they "got iced" last night.

So here is a quick primer on the two drinking games currently on everyone's lips:

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 deceptively strong -- vodka-based beverage. Smirnoff's marketing department denies that it planted the original idea on 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.)

To "arm crush," you place your hand on your forehead, position a can of beer between your elbow and mouth, then ... chug-a-lug, Pooh Bear! Women don't appear much in the research on this -- or in most of the arm-crushing photos posted on social sites. (No surprise there.) "Arm crushing" (a.k.a. "arm chugging") was allegedly spearheaded by one Tim Flanigan of Washington, D.C. It's beer guzzling for Homer Simpsons-in-the-making.

my son has actually told me about both of these games. apparently the bro’s icing bro’s isn’t cool and it def promotes binge drinking. “Arm Crushing” on the other hand is more of a social thing that doesn’t necessarily include beer/liquor. there’s a website called where you’ll see alot of 20 and 30 year olds drinking from their biceps, but you’ll also see alot of people “arm crushing” water. the age range is probably 12 to 55 years old and there’s even some pics of babies arm crushing their bottles! it’s def worth a look…..

Hmm..I am glad you bring this type of awareness to us. I certainly would not have thought that drinking an entire Smirnoff Ice was a game, and a popular one at that (definitely not a refined taste). As for the arm chugging, I am unsure of what exactly the point is. I suppose reading those links posted by Bailey may help but otherwise, I would most likely find this a nonthreatening practice.

I got Iced once as a prank from my brother. I was thankful he chose that instead of his regular Kamagra Gel based pranks he pulls off with his friends.

The Internet is like alcohol in some sense. It accentuates what you would do anyway. If you want to be a loner, you can be more alone. If you want to connect, it makes it easier to connect.
