It was Oscar’s night. My roommates and I decided to make a list and guess all of the nominees. After debating for an embarrassingly long time (we’re not that creative), we decided on a wager — whoever lost would have to buy the winner a shot. Pretty standard, and there would be no streaking involved. Stupidly, we didn’t make any rules of what the shot had to be or even whether it had to be good or not. I regret that now.
One of my roommates, Amanda, lost pretty badly. She got four of 24 right. In reality, it’s not that big of a deal. How does anyone besides a cinephile know who to pick for film editing? I mean, the only one I cared about was Best Original Song. If anyone cares to know, Bret McKenzie won with “Man or Muppet.” Please watch it. You won’t regret it. Anyway, Amanda ended up losing and decided she was going to buy me and my other roommate (we tied) the most disgusting shot she had ever heard of. She even went so far as to do research and this is what she found: gross
She decided she would buy us the Four Horsemen. What is that made of you ask? Jose Cuervo Gold Tequila, Jagermeister Herbal Liquor, Rumple Minze and Bacardi 151 Rum. I will die.
But what other gems can you find on this site? Here are just a few, many of them have inappropriate names. So, consider yourself forewarned. And don’t gag thinking about throwing one of these down the hatch.
—Hot Mexican Hooker
-Tuna Fish Juice
—New Jersey Turnpike (this is my personal favorite)
-One Bar Mat
-One Bar Rag
This shot involves squeezing a bar mat into a shot glass and then squeezing a bar rag over that. Imagine doing that with the mat from Union. Yum!
So, how can this list help you?
-Well, next time you’re in a bet, do what I did and bet a shot, then purposely lose. Your friend will never know what hit her.
-Find someone you really don’t like and buy them one of these classic shots.
-Get away from boys (or girls) hitting on you by buying them one of these. I think that will rid you of your problem.
What I want to know is if any of the bars in Iowa City will make some of these. Has anybody even heard of these? I have no idea, but I sure haven’t. Anyway, I guess I will find out in Friday. In which case, I might possibly be dead.
