Iced at the workplace

Has anyone been iced at the workplace recently? If you don’t know what it is look it up on youtube. Got iced myself a couple times this weekend at the shore.

I’ve iced my manager before.

It was really bro-some.

icing is already over.

Maybe you’re already over!

Doesn’t look like it:

these “icing” fratboys should all just blow each other and get it over with

icing = sorority hazing gone wrong

Icing = Brotastic.

You’ll get ex-bromunicated if you knock the icing (hat tip SSF)

Cheers Nupp.

ICING is awesome, in my opinion. I’ve never been in a frat, and am normally a pretty straightlaced guy at work. However, I think ICING is just so fake-macho, ridiculously puerile that I can’t help by love it. I’m leaving my current job (t-minus one week, end of the month) and some folks are definitely going to be ICED as I walk out.

It really is awesome. Best to play when you are at a shore house with a bunch of your buddies. I saw mad people doing it at the bar as well.

i fixed your post

The epitome of douche - bros icing bros

went to a wedding this weekend and saw at least three bros (BRAH!) get iced. This retarded game needs to stop immediately. Right ****ing now.

All of the icing I saw done this weekend was done ironically, which only makes it worse. “DUDE, I’M ICING YOU! THIS IS SO GAY!” “DUDE, I KNOW! I’M ACTUALLY SUBMITTING TO THE ICING, WHICH MAKES ME GAY TOO!”

Stop it. You ****ing cut it out right now. I don’t care if you recognize this whole icing thing as stupid before going ahead and doing it anyway. I’d rather you be genuine about it. I remember the first time someone sent me a link to that Bros Icing Bros ****, I thought it was a site about frat guys raping each other with ice dildos. That would have been sooooo much better than what it turned out to be.

No, what we have now is a burgeoning epidemic of guys engaged in a douchey ritual but acknowledging the douchiness of it as a way of saying, “Yes, I’m doing this. But I am NOT a douchebag.” Well, you are. You are a HUGE douche.

Are you unfamiliar with icing? Are you unfamiliar with the rules of icing? Good. Keep it that way. Because unless you’re a freshman pledging Delta Upsilon or some other ****ing frat, this game is a complete waste of your time. If CNN is already doing an extensive analysis of it, it’s already played out and lame and ****ing dumb. You’re an adult now. Just ****ing drink. There’s no need to dress it up with rules and taking knees and all this other ****. Here’s what I want you to do if someone tries to “ice” you at some party in the coming weeks.

GUY: (hands you a Smirnoff Ice)

YOU: What the **** is this?

GUY: You’ve been ICED.

YOU: What the **** are you talking about?

GUY: You have to drop to one knee, and then chug the Ice in front of everyone. This is meant to embarrass you because Smirnoff Ice is, like GAY. And drinking it makes you gay in public. You will be shunned and excommunicated by your bros if you don’t, unless you perform a proper Ice Block, in which you are allowed to retrieve your bro shield and…

YOU: Shut the **** up and CHOKE.

If the guy trying to ice you gets all huffy about it, good. He was the one stupid enough to shell out for a six-pack of Smirnoff Ice. Let that be a lesson to him.

If you submit to this icing business, you are a ****ing sheep. You lack the ability to think and judge for yourself, which probably means you also like the Dallas Cowboys. You are a waste of oxygen and I do not like you. There are certain pop culture trends that end up wrapped in so many layers of winking and irony that they end up returning to their original state of douchey pointlessness, and this is one of them. You do not have to drink. You do not have to do anything you don’t want to do. You can not drink. You can leave the party to go masturbate in a closet. You can spit on the homeless. This is America. That’s all fair game.

Have some free will, turn down the Ice, and go about your business. That’s what Paul ****ing Newman would have done. You think anyone tried to ice Paul Newman? Paul Newman would have raped your head if you tried to pull that ****.

And if you are one of these people going around surprising people with your broriffic ice attack, just know you are a dip**** who uses annoying drinking challenges to cover up for the fact that you are an uninteresting person who is unable to simply sit and drink and have a normal, useful conversation. You probably go to Holy Cross. EAT ****ING ****.

Icing is stupid.

yeah, read that a while ago. only idiots think drinking smirnoff ice is cool.

if you want to ‘ice’ someone and be a bro - next time your bro is talking to a chick at the pool or on the beach, pour some ‘ice’ down her back so he gets a better look.

I see your point but remain of the opinion that it’s harmless fun. I don’t take the acceptance of the trend and playing by the “rules of the game” as some kind of leading indicator that I’m going down the road to a worthless, banal existence of top-40 music and depraved homosexual urges.

On a side note, I did go to Holy Cross (only school I got into), I love the Dallas Cowboys (because they win a lot, right?), and I’ve never had a conversation that wasn’t at least 95% me quoting Will Ferrell movies (he’s hilarious LOLZ). TRULY I AM A UNIQUE SNOWFLAKE.

Found a case of Zima in my sister’s basement yesterday. I will be using these to block any attempted Icings. Because Zima is the grandfather of effeminate malternative beverages, any Bros (or is it Brahs?) that I block will not only have to slam the Ice and Zima (which will be warm and is probably 15 years old), they will have to admit their gayness and swear on their manparts that they will never engage in Icing again.

This space available.

Excuse me, I ordered a Zima, not emphysema!

be nice about it - at least give them their choice of jolly rancher to swig it with :)

I thought “vodka eyeballing” was the latest trend.

-500 points per the rules posted on the last thread on icing. Don’t have the link handy but I believe this is a good summary; in the workplace points have a positive linear log correlation with points the further you go up the ladder and a negative log linear the further you go down the ladder.

OHAI, that is disgusting. I wear contacts and have the worst vision imaginable (genetics + years at a computer screen) and can’t even begin to imagine doing that. Even if there’s no risk of damage to your eye, that’s gotta sting like a sonofab%&*^.

dude - LASIK - one of the smartest things i’ve ever done.

Smiley-

Unfortunately, conventional LASIK is not an option for me due to my eyesight specifics. Evidently, my vision and eyeball specifics mean that I’d be eligible for PRK or some of the surgery methods, like a permanent lens put inside my eye (forget what that method is called).

The downsides of these alternate routes sound pretty scary to me. Firstly, it’s not a “same-day” procedure. For both of them, it’s painful and usually means a week off work, at home in the dark, to recover. Depending on the surgery, it may mean multiple trips to the doctor.

Secondly, the procedure runs slightly higher risks. Obviously, risks exist with LASIK (and everything else in life…), but based on large sample sizes, PRK and the other one are a little more dicey.

I’ll keep using contacts and wait. LASIK gets better every year, and supposedly the range of candidates they can take gets wider as the tech improves. If you are ever at a CFA convention and see a dude trying to ICE a cardboard cutout, you’ll know my vision has deteriorated.
