Little Drummer Boy Challenge

quote [ Puh-rum-pum-pum-pum, people.

It’s very easy: So long as you don’t hear “The Little Drummer Boy,” you’re a contender. As soon as you hear it on the radio, on TV, in a store, wherever, you’re out. ]

I hate Christmas music with a passion. You can submit your win/loss (and let's be honest, it's gonna be a loss) here.

Perhaps it's a sign for personal growth; stop going.

I do a damn good job of avoiding Xmas music, but I also watch a lot (read: too much) TV, so it's bound to get me. LDB tends NOT to get to me, though. Hmmm.

The grocery store is what kills me. It's unavoidable.

I think, per the rules, you have tricked folks and are auto-eliminated from play!

I lost before Halloween.

The store I was just in played the David Bowie/Bing Crosby version. Does that count?
rylex said @ 3:11am GMT on 26th Nov
It counts.

Nah, I feel like I should dispute that. I mean sure, someone in that song is singing the Little Drummer Boy, but its' like someone else in the same song is singing the antidote.
arrowhen said @ 6:33am GMT on 26th Nov
A contest where you could lose by listening to David Bowie doesn't make sense, because listening to David Bowie is always better than not listening to David Bowie.
captainstubing said @ 8:56pm GMT on 26th Nov
Damn straight. And the bing/bowie ldb is one of only two Christmas songs allowed in Chez stubing. The other one is a fairytale of New York and both are allowed in December only.

It counts as David Bowie singing a song so you don't have to hear that other song.
JWWargo said @ 6:55am GMT on 27th Nov
When you report your loss, they ask which version of the song you heard:

SIIIiiiiiIIIiiiiiIIiiiimply HAAAAaaaaAAAaaaaving a WONderful Christmas time!

I actually like that song.
Loki said @ 3:26am GMT on 26th Nov
"Blackmail your children!
God knows that that's the only...
...way that they'll behave!
Let's sing more carols!
Let's sing a song about cold...
...weather, drinks, and date raaaaaape!"

"Cos we need a lot of Christmas!
Stinking lot of Christmas!
Giant wad of Christmas, til it's coming out our ears...!"

(Sorry. No idea what came over me. I meant to say that I hate carols, too. I have a good chance of winning this game, but that's mostly because after ten years of working in retail, I never go into a shop this time of year without a working mp3 player. Also, I don't own a TV.)

Most Christmas music is okay I think, but I hate the drummer boy with a passion.
arrowhen said @ 6:35am GMT on 26th Nov
Last Christmas I gave the little drummer boy my heart, but the very next day he gave it away.
knumbknutz said @ 1:37am GMT on 27th Nov
Does it going on a nonstop loop in my ear after reading the header count?

I'm out. 2:55PM on a December 2, at the Starbucks on Woodside road in Redwood City. Had to try that cardamom latte.
