Excuse my opinion

There is a game I've seen to be prevalent in social activities among the student wards here at BYUI called "Pass the Orange". I'm not sure how popular it is in other places, I'm sure there are lots of variations.
Anyway, I do not like this game at all.

The object of the game is to successfully pass an orange down a row of people by sticking the orange between your chin and neck. The next person grabs the orange with their chin/neck and it travels down the line the same way. You aren't allowed to use your hands.

I don't understand why people think this game is appropriate! Thank you, but I do not want a guy's face that close to my chest. Really.

What do you all think? Have you heard of this game? Do you think it's inappropriate or is it just a fun silly game I'm making a big deal out of?

Ugh. All I know is I left the ward FHE early tonight. :(

This *fun* little pastime has been around forever. It was well known when I was a teen. And no, I didn't like it then, either. Kind of creepy, really.

You might have to suggest some games that you like.

Yeah, I don't really like that game either. To me it screams, "Let's pretend we're doing something naughty, when we're not! We are so funny! Teehee!!" So dumb.

Hahahaha totally weird for FHE but one year when I hosted a V-Day party we played it and it was awesome!
