Weekly DVD Drinking Game: Home Alone


I am not Kevin Carr, that I am aware of.  But like Kevin, I enjoy inebriation the way tweeners enjoy Twilight.  Well it’s that time of the year again.  The time when we take a moment from our busy lives and focus on peace, giving, and copious amounts of booze.

When we were kids, Home Alone was the kind of movie that never failed to entertain us with pratfalls and slapstick.  Kevin McCallister became my idol of childish rebellion; eating ice cream for lunch and sledding down the stairs?  Sweet!  But as I got older, and developed a pronounced alcohol dependency, I began to examine ways to exploit this classic holiday film for the opportunities it afforded for binge drinking.  To wit, I offer you my recently constructed Home Alone drinking game.

And now, to cover our butts…this game is intended only for those who are over the age of 21.  Please don’t make me call the South Bend Shoveler and have you reduced to a salt mummy.  Please drink responsibly or the Polka bands win.
