NipNominate – The latest craze?
NipNominate: get your nips out for the ladies, lads
Despite its popularity around Exeter, though, it seems some members of the student community have grown tired of NekNominations, inventing their own version of the game: Nip and Nominate (NipNominate, if you want to be edgy.)
The new craze has already started spreading to other universities like a rugby player’s rash. Although it has no official etiquette, NipNominate, from the examples thus far, generally involves a male individual exposing their nipple(s) and taking a picture of it, usually in public.
“We thought neck and nominate had lost all of its fun,” says Tom Vandeleur Cooke, one of NipNominate’s pioneers. “Watching a load of pigeons sit at their desks at home drinking half a pint of shandy on a webcam is fucking boring.”
“We had had the idea for a while,” says Tom Darby, another NipNominate participant. “I just waited for one of us to be nominated, which happened one morning [last week].”
Whilst one student joked about NipNominations being “a perfect accompaniment to the nippy weather,” Jess Rayner, a final year History student, said: “If you’re going to make a tit out of yourself on Facebook, you might as well keep your liver intact while you do it.”
