What else does COPD mean?
- Acronym for “Circle of Poor Decisions”, a game that involves several people standing in a circle and holding a bottle of Andre Champagne. This game requires that everyone swig the entire bottle and then pass the bottle to the next person. When the person who has drank the most from the bottle during their turn ends the game, it is over. The last person to finish the game must then throw the empty bottle in the street. This is symbolic of the many bad decisions that will be made in that one day. (in Community Dictionary, added by Jovany Jimenez)
