Staring Contest

One of my favorite pastimes is coming up with party themes, so my jaw dropped when I saw this Staring Contest. People had to stare at each other without laughing; heckling, of course, was welcome. Can you imagine all the hilarious moments? As Alex would say, "The mind boggles."

A. said...

That is AWESOME! Hilarious!

Sal said...

Ach, I love it. And there's no WAY I'd even be a contender.

Joanna said...

I couldn't be a contender either. I'm losing it just looking at these photos.

Heather said...

Okay, that's fantastic. I'm going to have to set that up at our next party. :D

Georgia said...

How funny, the host of this is a good friend of mine (the dude in the center of the second photo). It was a fun time.

It's All Good said...

This is soooo funny! I love it!!

Kristin said...

That's hilarious. I fear I would be eliminated fairly quickly. My poker face is not one to speak of.

famapa said...

hilarious! in my younger days me and my friends used to play "make my laugh" which was a very cruel party game. one person had to try and make everyone else laugh and everyone had to try and not laugh. if you did, you lost and it was then your turn to tune into your inner clown. there was one girl who could never make us laugh, she'd be trying for 15 minutes and then finally someone chuckle just to give her a break.
a staring contest seems so much more fair!

Lisa from Lisa's Yarns said...

For once - a competition I might have a shot at!!!

Dionne said...

LOL, I love this! What a fun idea!

The Socialite said...

haha - great idea! ;)

LMN said...

That is so hilarious. Totally made my day!

Sarah Jane said...

Such a good idea. My boyfriend was just telling me about Conan O'Brien and his friend Andy and their staring contests!

anna said...

Love it! Awesome!

mesh and lace said...

ha, i totally want in on this!


Kim said...

Dear GOD would I lose to this. I'm the worst when it comes to laughing. If someone tells me "Don't laugh" the first thing I'll do is laugh. Still, this is a great party theme!

umama said...

I wouldn't last a minute!

patternoflife said...

So bloody fantastic!!

anythinggoeshere said...

Looks like an exercise I did at Landmark Education. It is certainly had to do without breaking up and it really has you be with the humanity of other people. xo Joan

lbwDESIGN said...

i would start laughing from the first second.

katie diana said...

ooo i am such a party themer, this one never even crossed my mind! too fun!

leni said...

this is awesome!

The Lil Bee said...


A Life More Fabulous said...

That's too funny - you know, I think my dog would win! He stares me down every time - I'm useless, I'd start laughing...

betsy and iya said...

This is brilliant! I might have to add this to the list of games to play at the wedding reception...ooooo, it's gonna be a BLAST. (maybe we can even employ guest to play during the ceremony?)

Jen Lula said...

This just to funny- I am a sucker for any kind of themed party. What an amazing idea!!

Courtney said...

This is great! I'm laughing just thinking about it. :-)

You Are My Fave said...

I would come in last place for sure. When it matters, I blink and crack up in two seconds flat.

blue hour designs said...

freaking hilarious :)
I would be in on that for sure.

Ana said...

So awesome!

I would lose immediately, but love the concept!

down and out chic said...

oh my, i would totally suck at this...yup i'd accidentally bust out laughing and spit on my opponent. not good.

Blue is Bleu said...

That's hilarious! We have a family reunion coming up and my mum-in-law was asking me to think up some games... I'll need to suggest this! We're all a giggly bunch so it'll probably be a string of very short games hehe!

Mallory said...

this is genius. pure genius. & i'd be so very good. i think..

Amy said...

Awesome - although I would totally be out the first round! Oh well - that would mean more drinks for me!

Megan said...

that's great

Diana said...

That looks like so much fun! I think maybe only people in New York know enough people to have parties.

Vanessa said...

Easily the greatest idea of all time. Why wasn't I invited?

Rebecca said...

awesome party idea :) it would be ideal if there were drinks going around, though!

Nicole Marie said...

that is awesome!!

d i a n a m u s e said...

In addition to the staring thing, the facial hair on some of these guys is extraordinary.

Elaine said...

Oh my!!! That must've been so much fun! I am so bad at staring contests...I always laugh.. :(

Roberta Jane said...

This is out-of-control AMAZING!

nichole said...

Brilliant! I could never do it. Not for a second. I would crack up.

Lilith said...

OMG This is going to be the next event I'm hosting. the last one I did was a pancake party. LOL.

I'd love to have a starring contest. Anyone would get a kick out of this.

K @ Blog Goggles said...

Reminds me of a rock, paper, scissors party I attended back in the day. Love creative party themes :)

Ariel said...

That is so AWESOME! I love the bracket layout on the white board and all the details/lines laid out on the floor. Absolute genius.

Conversation Pieces said...

That is funny!

Carol said...

Oh my gosh I am horrible at staring contests! I just burst out laughing!

Jennifer The Leopard said...

J Lep was robbed our our title!

Leah said...

I love it! I think I might have to borrow this idea.

LouDuk said...

HAHA! I would have loved to have been at that party!

The Daily Lovely said...

Do you think a beard was a prerequisite?

Keeley said...

What a fun party theme that would be! But I wouldn't be very good at it, I laugh too much!

miss b said...

Looks more like a beard-themed party.

tricia said...

haha that is really greate

Hope said...

that scoreboard is great! i wonder what kind of invitations that party could have....i'm picturing an eye test...

birthday girl said...

no way i could compete, but i do so love this idea.

Anonymous said...

The christian louboutin heels is designed for the ladies. Since the pumps was born, the ladies life become colorful. The christian louboutin evening pumps are the god's masterwork. Who invited thechristian louboutin pumps? Seldom people knew, but I think every lady would be grateful for him. Among the countless pumps, the christian louboutin peep toe is the most outstanding ones. The elegant pattern, the delicate style all mold the ladies perfect leg profile. Flowers in the spring of 2011 creeping, up from hair to clothes continue to footwear, have had a brilliant up. In such a glamor, spring and summer flowers now here. Romance is a woman's mood, exquisite flowers just right of expression in our gestures, the woman, how can we not love the romantic temperament so that they distributed the flowers do? 2011 flowers bloom will enjoy different poses! The Christian Louboutin 2011 Sandals also can adds the hright of the ladies, it bring surprise to the short lady. Especially the red sole of the louboutin heels, magic and sexy, many ladies are crazy. The red sole, the first feature of the Christian Louboutin stroe.
