Party Game: Guess The Celebrity


Last night, it was Ryan and my turn (is that proper grammar?) to host a dinner party for for two of our favorite LA couple friends.  After all the wine and appetizers and Southern-inspired food was eaten, we considered our options for the rest of the night.  Card game?  Trivial Pursuit?  Charades?  

We settled on a game of Guess The Celebrity with a questionable lack of rules.  Basically everyone writes down a handful of celebrity names (real or fictional) and puts them in a fish bowl.  We split in to two teams and everyone had 1 minute to get their team to guess as many celebrities as they could.  The only think you couldn't say was the celebrities name.  Hilarity ensued.  

Kim Kardashian - "Big butt. Sex tape."
Christina Aguilera - "Big boobs. Reality singing show."
Paula Deen - "Eats a lot of meat. Diabetes. Food Network."
Elizabeth Smart - "Kidnapped and held in the woods. Mormon"
John Hamm - "Hot guy from Mad Men."
Katniss Everdeen - "Hot main chick in Hunger Games."
Chevy Chase - "Comedian who likes to fall down stairs."
Michael J Fox - "Has that shaky disease. Family Ties."
Sarah Jessica Parker - "Married to Ferris Bueller" 
Kate Winslet - "Titanic. Shows her boobs a lot in movies."
Michael Jackson - "Thriller. Might have touched boys."
Tom Cruise - "Might be gay. Risky Business." 
Rosie O'Donnell - "Definitely gay. Talk show host. Not Ellen."
Steadman - "Oprah's man friend."
Buster Bluth - "Pass." 
Octomom - "8 Babies! 8 Babies!"
Tim Tebow - "Jesus quarterback."

As the night went on, the celebrities got markedly weirder.

Cliff Clavin
Jo Polniaczek
Jared From Subway
Alfred E. Newman
ee cummings
Dick Cavett

Michael Bolton

I think I speak for everyone when I say we could have done this all night.  But it was 11:30 and we aren't 21.  Highly recommend as party entertainment for your next get together.  I promise you'll die laughing.

I'm sure the game would benefit from a touch of fancy...and your refined pop culture knowledge.
