“Bucket list: 1. Bucket, 2. Ice, 3. Beer”

A “bucket list” is a list of things to do before one “kicks the bucket” (dies). “My Bucket List: Ice, Beer” is a jocular “bucket list” that has been printed on many images. Sometimes the “bucket list” includes the bucket.

The joke became popular in 2012. “My bucket list: 1.Get bucket 2. Get beer 3. Ice beer” was posted on Twitter on March 30, 2012. “My bucket list: Ice,beer” was posted on Twitter on August 10, 2012.


Wiktionary: bucket list
Etymology
From kick the bucket (“to die”) + list, hence a “list of things to do before you die”. The term was coined by American and British screenwriter Justin Zackham in his screenplay for the 2007 film The Bucket List. Zackham had created his own list called “Justin’s List of Things to Do Before I Kick the Bucket” which he then shortened to “Justin’s Bucket List”. The first item on his list was to have a screenplay produced at a major Hollywood studio. After a time, it occurred to him that the notion of a “bucket list” could itself be fodder for a film, so he wrote a screenplay about two dying men racing to complete their own bucket lists with the time they had left. Articles about the movie are the earliest known uses.
