THE LITTLE DRUMMER BOY Challenge

Yes... It is that time of year again!
What time of year, you ask? The most wonderful time of the year!

Beginning on November 29th and running through December 26th The Little Drummer Boy Challenge shall run.

Sign up! You could win BIG PRIZES*

What is The Little Drummer Boy Challenge?

Why it's simple... Yet fiendishly difficult. All you have to do is not hear any version of The Little Drummer Boy starting on 11/29 and ending on 12/31.

Its really that simple.

Now there are a few caveats.

Nobody can make you lose. A person who knows you are in the competition sends you a trap link to the David Bowie/Bing Crosby version? YOU DO NOT LOSE

Grandma innocently sends you a link to a thrash metal version by the Swedish Black Metal group Borknagar? YOU LOSE!

Walk past a disheveled gentleman in front of the local Wawa and he's humming the song? YOU LOSE!

Hear the local busker playing it on her flute? YOU LOSE!

Hear it for 5 seconds while walking past a Christmas display at the Woolworth's? YOU LOSE!

It was decided last year that hearing Missy Elliott's seminal hit, "Work It" does not eliminate you. I will not condone any competition that limits someone listening to Missy Elliott.

Sign up! I'll keep track here of who is in and who is out! If(when) you're eliminated post the time, the place, and what version eliminated you.

*There are no prizes

    I got got by the Christmas playlist at the happiest place on Earth last year. Won't be doing anything like that this year, and already have much of my shopping done, so let's do this.

    The extra risk when I do venture out to a mall or two for the last of my shopping really gave it a little je ne sais quoi that I need again this year.

    I don't get out and about to places that blast holiday music too much, but we let DJ Pandora handle the music while we decorate the house, and with my niece and nephew staying with us it's even more likely to come up at home.

    I'm in. Last year I lost because Vinny from Giant Bomb was trying to remember the Missy Elliot song during a video, but accurately sung the Drummer Boy instead.
    This year I'll be in Japan for two weeks in December and the only two xmas songs they know are Last Christmas and All I Want for Christmas Is You, so I should be safe for a while at least.

    So just what is this Missy Elliot song anyway? I know it came up last year too but I can't recall what it is.

    She samples the song for like, 3 seconds in her song 'Work it' at around the 3 and a half minute mark.

    I'm in. Though I'll probably listen to the Pentatonix version at least once before the competition starts.

    Also thank you for the Missy Exemption, I, too, cannot condone any competition that prevents anyone from listening to Missy.
