4 New Year's Eve Drinking Games to Wash Away 'Fiscal Cliff' and '50 Shades'


champagneI don't know about you, but I kind of feel like I need a shot of vodka every time I hear the words "fiscal cliff." It so deserves to be on Lake Superior State University's banished words list, doesn't it? Which reminds me ... actually, that might make a good drinking game! Because. Ermahgerd, 2012. It's been all the talk at parties this holiday season -- this was one helluva year.

So here are four drinking games for 2012. If you're at a New Year's Eve party tonight -- or even if you're just watching the ball drop from warm, cozy safety of your sofa -- it's what all the cool kids-over-21 will be doing. Let's toast to the stories we want to wash away in 2013!

Young and Restless drinking game: Take a sip from your cosmo whenever anyone says:

  • Side boob
