Icing a person

A few weeks ago, I was at a poker game showing off my l33t skills. For those of you not well-versed in l33t speak, that means elite skills. And by elite skills I mean I was the 2nd person out of the game of 8-9 people. But at the beginning of the game I saw something that I had never seen before.

There's a thing out in the world called being "iced." It is when someone gives a Smirnoff Ice to a person and the recipient has to kneel on one knee and chug the entire drink. There also involves a bit of hiding of the drink but Urban Dictionary doesn't contain this part of the game thing.

I was vaguely aware of the term but I was of the impression that it was more or less a fairy tale. Yeah, sure. Werewolves come out on full moons and ice people. Lo and behold I saw it happen. And it wasn't just a standard 12 ounce bottle of Smirnoff Ice. No, it was a 40 ounce bottle of Smirnoff Ice.

The guy being iced dutifully chugged the entire bottle. I was also surprised to hear that this group of friends regularly iced each other. Just remember kids, sometimes fairy tales are true.
