It’s inspired by John Oliver and his Last Week Tonight rant about 2016 – a year with a lot of challenges!
You can watch his rant here (WARNING! This video contains foul language and is somewhat rude):
For those of you who enjoy a little rude fun like this, consider hosting an f-you 2016 New Year’s party! Say buh-bye to a truly horrid year. It doesn’t matter what political party you belong to either. 2016 was notably bad for far more than divisive politics. Here’s just a short list of all the yucky things that occurred:
- Many celebrity deaths… Prince, David Bowie, Muhammad Ali to name just a few
- Mother Nature wasn’t super supportive either, as we were hit by city destroying forest fires, a nasty hurricane, historic flooding, and a devastating earthquake. There are probably more examples!
- The Syrian refugee crisis dominated the year
- The ongoing wars in and around the Middle East appeared unsolvable
- There were multiple large scale terrorist attacks targeting many countries
- And finally UGHHHH… the divisive politics
All in all it’s probably a year we are all happy to see gone, so this New Year’s Eve party idea is a fun alternative theme. Ring in the new year by sending out the old year with a real bang… that is blowing it up with a bomb.
The invitation design features a comic book cartoon style bomb with explosion and the words buh-bye 2016. There is a raised hand giving the middle finger gesture. All in good fun! Celebrate the incoming new year by saying f-you to the old year. 2017 is hopefully going to be much better.
