The Barack Obama 2011 State of the Union Drinking Game
San Francisco Chronicle ^ | 1/23/11 | Will Durst

Posted on 01/23/2011 8:28:43 PM PST by SmithL

NEEDED TO PLAY:

4 taxpayers of any sex: 1 rich white banker- type wearing dark suit with loosened tie. 2 ordinary folks wearing jeans; 1 in a blue or flannel work shirt, the other in a white shirt, sleeves rolled up. 1 poor bedraggled person wearing clothes that look like they were retrieved from the bottom of a rodeo dumpster behind the animal performer stalls.

1 living room with a TV tuned to the State of the Union Address.

1 shot glass per person. Everybody brings own, scattering array on coffee table in front of TV. Banker gets first choice for use during game. White shirt picks next, then work shirt. Banker pockets last shot glass as well, and Rags either rents it from him, steals a replacement from the kitchen or drinks out of own cupped hands.

Ante up 25 bucks. Cash. Except Banker, who tosses in an I.O.U. and Rags who everybody just avoids eye contact with.

3 packages of steamed Vienna Beef Chicago style hot dogs in the middle of table with butter grilled buns, tomatoes, onions, and some of that weird neon green relish on the side.

1 bottle of bourbon.

A large stash of beer in cans on ice. Rags gets whatever is on sale, like Heileman's Old Style Ice Light Dry. Banker gets import of choice. Jeans get whatever they want, but have to buy all the beer, bourbon, hot dogs, condiments and carry the groceries by themselves.

RULES OF THE GAME:

Every time Barack H Obama mentions bipartisanship, everybody has to drink 2 shots of beer. If he talks about the lessons of Tucson, the last person to throw their arms in the air, fall to their knees and shout "Hallelujah!" has to drink 1 entire beer.

No drinking on “I” or “My” because otherwise we will all have alcohol poisoning.

Kinda like watching “Pirates of the Caribbean” and tossing a shot every time someone says “Captain Jack Sparrow”....

Better bring an extra bottle....

“If you took a shot every time he said “I”...”

... you would die from alcohol poisoning.

Shoot, if one of the rules was to take a drink every time his head bobs reading the teleprompter (it’s like watching freakin’ Wimbledon sometimes!), I’d be drunk before the first paragraph was read...;-)

You’d be dead of alcohol poisoning in 10 minutes or less.

Either that or you’d be thinking, “Yeah, I’d hit it!” every time the camera pans to Nancy Pelosi.

I’m actually thinking about this!

Maybe a bowl of chocolate and a list of words to require eating it...piece by piece...

On second thought a barrel of Hershey kisses and.........

Now that is a girls dream game! LOL

No thanks, if I took a shot for every time he said “Let me be clear” I’d be dead.

Aloha Smitty!

At the first mention of the financial mess that he inherited from the previous administration, everyone has to chug all of the beers and down all of the Bourbon.

The next morning, they'll be hungover and in the same place as they were before the state of the union speech.....looking for another way out.

I think it will take too long trimming my toenails, or something, to listen to that P O S say pretty much of anything. Avoided hearing more that a syllable from him so far, much the same record after eight years of contoon....

Ya'll have fun with the drinking game though...........

I wish I could watch it but I have a previous engagement. I am judging the First Annual Fastest Growing Petunia Contest./s

I would rather do that than watch Nero calling for new spending while the country is on fire.

Sorry, I’ll have to miss the speech. I’ve got to finish up whittling a spigot for a Billy Goat’s butt.

There has to be a bonus bottle of bourbon for each to consume between the time they show the empty seat for Gabby Giffords and the time the Kenyan pays homage to her.

Fortunately for me, I will not be able to watch even by accident. I'll be hearing Sandra Radvanovsky sing Tosca at the Met.

Me too. Just the sound of his voice brings out the worst in me.
