How to break it to your friends that 'neknominations' are lame

Neknominations are stupid and need to be stopped. BREAK THE CHAIN!

YOU’VE ALL HEARD of the neknomination phenomenon. If not, where have you been? Certainly not on Facebook, on any form of news website or social media platform.

So basically, it’s an online drinking game that originated in Australia and made it to Ireland. The premise is simple, participants must film themselves ‘necking’ alcohol, before nominating someone else to do the same.

Besides the fact that it has been condemned by various alcohol awareness groups, it’s also deeply annoying when you Facebook friends insist on taking part.

Well, desist. Here’s how to break it to them that they’re clowns.

This is basically you

You look as cool as this guy

Which, may we clarify, is not cool at all. #madyokes #bants #yolo

You know those people who don’t drink and judge you for drinking? You’re worse than them now.

Our Facebook feeds are now like a particularly uninteresting episode of Tallafornia, thanks to you

Nobody cares that you can down a pint behind a camera

You’re just wasting it. Enjoy it, SUP IT for God’s sake.

Then comes the gagging, don’t forget the gagging.

Then nominate someone else, and the horror chain continues

The names you read out at the end mean nothing to us

Unless they’re us, in which case you’re blocked for life.

It’s the new planking

Remember planking? Yeah, yeah. With great shame. We’d mention icing but even that is too sophisticated for comparison.

Clubs are trying to get in on it now

It’s almost worse than when they invited memes to host nights. Remember this?
