11 Songs You Shouldn't Sing At The Office Holiday Party

'Tis the season for office Christmas holiday parties. No doubt you have already had yours at work, or are getting ready for one. They all include copious drinking, great food, stolen glances, slurry conversations, "Can ah bum ah cigarette?" and intentional accidental groping.

No bonus this year? It all went into cleaning the carpets at the party after "someone" had too many margaritas.

Karaoke is a big hit at these holiday parties. It brings out the diva in the wallflowers, and the sweat and cringing in all the rest of us. For some reason it also turns the nerdiest guys in the office rock stars. We've all been there, hanging from a rafter, shirtless, singing "Candle In the Wind" on what we will later say was a dare.

This weekend is the big Houston Press office Christmas holiday party. If anything fun happens, we will let you know. Don't worry about the Rocks Off team, we have some tricks up our sleeves.

Hint: FAYGO.
