While everybody has their favorite, and least favorite, Christmas songs, a new viral challenge is looking to drum out a specific one: The Little Drummer Boy.
"As soon as you hear it on the radio, on TV, in a store, wherever, you’re out," the rules dictate, specifying that when you're eliminated, "you record your loss on the official reporting form, then tell us all about it on the Facebook wall, along with the time and place of your demise."
Obviously, the contest relies on the honor system. And the fun itself lies not so much in avoiding the song, but in reading the accounts of the people who couldn't, and where and when they lost.
If you care to play along, be warned your odds of "survival" are infinitesimal: there are as many as 153 covers of the song out there -- sung by everyone from Johnny Mathis to The Wiggles to the metalcore band August Burns Red -- according to Wikipedia.
