Vodka Eyeball Shots: In Case You Missed It, the Latest Trend (Not Really)

Apparently, a trend has been sweeping the land that somehow escaped us here at Fork in the Road. It's called "vodka eyeballing," and it's pretty much what you think it is.

As mentioned in a recent Atlantic Food piece, it's probably less of an actual trend and more the kind of YouTube stunt that gets media folk excited. In any case, as Stephen Colbert pointed out, it may mess up your vision, but it won't actually get you drunk.

Much to our chagrin, when we googled it, the results included "vodka snorting" (à la Prince Harry) and -- forgive this test to your gag reflex -- vodka tampon soaking. Whatever happened to good old-fashioned drugs?
