The State of the Union Drinking Game 2012: We are the 99% Buzzed
If you’ve ever watched the State of the Union address, you know it’s a lot more fun to watch it surrounded by friends, particularly buzzed. Here's the State of the Union 2012 drinking game, so play responsibly.
Here are the rules, it’s pretty simple:
If President Obama says any of the following words, you have to take a drink:
- “State of the Union”
- “Make no mistake"
- "hopeful audacity"
- "yes, we can"
- "let me be clear"
- "partisan rhetoric"
- Occupy Wall Street or any OWS-related demonstration
- The 1%
- The 99%
- “Health Care”
- The upcoming election
- Osama bin Laden
- "Let's Stay Together" (Drink twice if he sings)
- The Keystone Pipeline project
- Arab Spring
- Afghanistan and Iraq
- A "level playing field" in terms of the middle class
If the President mentions SOPA or PIPA, you must drink from your neighbor's glass or can.
If Obama's hair gets visibly greyer during the speech, you have to finish everything on the table.
Do not play this game if you're underage, suffering from liver disorders, or have to go anywhere near a motor vehicle within 12 hours after the speech, because it's gonna be a brutal 60 minutes.
The State of the Union drinking game actually originated with George W. Bush, and has been adapted to fit Barack Obama's speaking style (i.e. complete sentences without malapropisms or mixed metaphors).
