The Annual State of the Union Drinking Game (Vanity)
Teleprompter Of The United States | January 24, 2012 | TOTUS

Posted on 01/24/2012 5:53:16 AM PST by Charles Henrickson

OK, gang, it's time for our annual SOTU drinking game. When the Teleprompter of the United States says WHICH words or phrases, will we drink up? For instance:

"my"
"the middle-class"
"working men and women"
"Gabby"
"American hero"
"my"
"the recovery"
"We've made great progress."
"Let's finish the job."
"Let's put Americans back to work."
"creating jobs"
"lowered taxes"
"the wealthiest among us"
"bipartisanship"
"my"

Go for it! Let's hear your predictions.

I don't usually post a Vanity, but the SOTU drinking game is a long-standing tradition here, and I hadn't seen it posted yet.

With some of those selections I expect to be plastered about a half-hour into his speech. I guess that's a good thing - I can't stand listening to the bastard!

Good list, CH.

I suggest adding: “I won’t rest until ....”

A drink at every mention of ANY of the items on the TOTUS list would likely result in being plastered even before Moochelle starts pulling Twinkies out of her purse.

Okay, I’ve got, fair/fairness, as in ‘paying their fair share’, although conveniently it’s never quantified as to what is fair.
For the smarty pants intellectuals in the MSM, I’ve got a news flash, LIFE IS NOT FAIR!!! Personally, I’ve found that adversity is an excellent teacher of principles such as humilty, and patience.
As to POTUS, his hubris will be his undoing. His use of I, me, mine is pathological.

Yeah. But we also have the annual Honorary Serb State of the Union non-watching game.

One glass of wine with dinner for me, and no Hussein to make me lose my temper!!!!

I hope that starting next year, we shall have a new President whom many of us will not mind watching on TV.

Don’t ruin a perfectly good bottle of whatever by watching BHO’s SOTU while imbibing.
Turn off the TV/radio/’net, sit by the backyard firepit, and enjoy your beverage.
If you must, pretend the dancing flames are the economy once this administration gets thru with it.

Let's see whether "Main Street" gets another run tonight.

"Fair Share" will cause alcohol poisoning.

I hope nobody actually follows through on this game. The average person would be dead from alcohol poisoning before President Obama even gets past the part where he congratulates himself on his ever improving golf game.

I think I am pretty safe with taking “inherited”. I figure thats a 6 pack or 6 shots. Barely binge drinking.

I just wonder if SCOTUS will show up......Might be interesting.

Here's how we pass the time at our house when the Idiot gives a talk. We also play Obozo pong after somebody makes Bingo ... we call out Ping when the Wee Wee looks at the teleprompter panel on his right, and Pong when he looks at the one on his left. A few beers later, with the sound on mute, and you can almost stand the clown.

I think you should send this to everyone in Congress with the following guidance:

Every time the TOTUS uses one of those phrases, the Republicans in unison chant “drink, drink, drink” and Obie slams a shot.

Now THAT.....would be a SOTU worth watching...

I’m surprised that he hasn’t changed it to “billionaires and trillionaires” since a million these days ain’t squat. Maybe enough to fill my gas guzzler Hemi Ram for a year. LOL! On your next post, SOTU will be a re-run of the “ones” accomplishment and plans for more of the same for the next year. I won’t be wasting my time since I don’t want to buy a new TV right now.
