I was feeling a bit left out as I watched various outlets plug their drinking games for the big speech tonight. See, I have to get up early every morning to go to work.
Well, if I were to take a shot every time POTUS said “jobs” or “I” or “government,” not only would I not be able to wake up for work tomorrow, I’d probably spend the day in the emergency room with alcohol poisoning.
So, I devised a “guaranteed-to-stay-sober” drinking game. For you other poor working schlubs like me: here you go.
Drink 1 shot of your favorite liquor every time you hear one of the following phrases: “personal liberty,” “founding principles,” or “constitutional limitations.”
Drink 2 shots for each of the following: “government is not the solution,” “slash the corporate income tax,” or “trim our oppressive Federal Regulatory Code.”
You get the point. The seal of your liquor bottle remains intact, and you are at work on time in the morning, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed (whatever the hell THAT means).
Oh, and if you didn’t get a chance to play this drinking game for the SOTU speech, don’t worry. You still have another 432 Obama speeches left this year to try it out on.
