Allow me to present a new drinking game for your consideration: Acquire one CD by the Canadian power-pop band Sloan. (It doesn't matter which one, though I'd suggest 1998's Navy Blues if your goal is to get drunk as quickly as possible. To go a little slower, try the new Action Pact, their seventh studio disc.) Set the CD player on shuffle, then start playing songs one at a time. After every track each player must attempt to hum a line from that track. If he or she is able to, he or she must take a sip. Because Sloan has only four songs that aren't stupidly catchy--telling you which ones would give you an unfair advantage--you can see where this is heading. --
