Kacey Musgraves Takes A Hard Pass

Kacey Musgraves didn't cave to audience pressure in Australia when she refused to do a "shoey" on stage while performing in Sydney.  

A "shoey," for the uninitiated, is an Aussie custom of drinking out of a stranger's shoe.

She told the crowd, who were chanting for her to partake in the tradition, “That’s disgusting, I’m not (expletive) drinking out of your shoe. You could have athlete’s foot or something.”

A study in an Australian medical journal revealed that doing a “shoey” can result in a staph infection.

I'd take a hard pass on drinking out of a shoe too. If it involves alcohol, you would think the germs would be killed? Nope! Turns out the alcohol quickens the growth of the bacteria.
