George W Bush 2007 State of the Union Drinking Game

George W. Bush 2007 State of the Union Drinking Game

Raging Moderate, by Will Durst

What you need to play:

•Four taxpayers: One rich white guy wearing a suit. Cufflinks are nice. Two people wearing jeans, one in a blue work shirt, the other in a white shirt and one person wearing clothes rejected by the Salvation Army. Belt and shoelaces removed.

•One shot glass per person. Everybody brings their own from home and places it on table. Suit gets first pick for use during game. White shirt picks next, then Blue shirt. Suit takes last shot glass as well, and Rags has to beg a glass from other players when necessary or drink out of own cupped hands.

•20-buck ante for everybody except Suit who throws in a quarter.

•1 pot of Texas chili and 1 bowl of guacamole in middle of coffee table with tortilla chips nearby. Rags has to prepare and serve the chili and guacamole.

•A large stash of beer. Rags gets the cheapest stuff available. Suit gets whatever import he likes. Jeans get any domestic brand as long as it's no more expensive than Bud, but must pay for all the beer, the bourbon, the chips and the ingredients for the chili and guacamole.

Rules of the Game:

1. Whenever George W uses the phrases, 'defending liberty,' 'enormous progress' or 'challenges ahead,' last person to knock wood has to drink 2 shots of beer. If he actually says, 'There are those who envy our freedoms and seek to destroy us,' everybody drinks a whole beer.

2. The first time George W mentions the tragic events of 9/11, the last person to eat one dollop of chili off a tortilla chip must drink three shots of beer. The second time George W mentions the tragic events of 9/11, the last person to eat one dollop of guacamole off a tortilla chip must drink three shots of beer. Continue to alternate. If you mis-chip, drink two extra shots of beer.

3. If George W mispronounces Iraqi President Al-Maliki's name, drink two shots of beer. If he even attempts to pronounce the name of Iranian President Mahmoud Amadinejad, first person to stop laughing is exempt from drinking three shots of beer.

4. If George W makes up a word like '9/11ersor 'deterrencism,' last person to yell out 'Strategerie!' drinks two shots of beer.

5. Every time Senators Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama are shown in the audience, Suit drinks one shot of beer.

6. The first time George W talks about immigration, last person to finish three chips of guacamole has to drink threeshots of beer.

7. If either the vice President, secretary of state or first lady are caught napping, last person to make snoring noises drinks two shots of beer. If Senator Robert Byrd is shown awake, Blue and White drink two shots of beer.

8. Everybody drinks two shots of beer if President Bush mentions Scooter Libby. Three shots of beer if he mentions Jack Abramoff. Four shots of beer if he mentions Osama bin Laden.

9. Whenever George W quotes the Bible, last person to sing the first eight bars of 'Amazing Grace' has to drink two shots of beer.

10. If George W smirks during a standing ovation, take turns throwing chips of chili and guacamole at TV. First person to hit Bush's head exempt from drinking three shots of beer.

11. If George W tells a folksy Texas tale with a deeper meaning about not leaving before the job is done, Suit has to drink out of beer-filled hands of Rags, who gets to dry his hands on Suit's jacket.

12. Predict the number of applause breaks. After the speech, drink number of shots of beer equal to the difference between your estimate and the real number.

EXTRAS:

•Anybody who can identify person giving the Democratic response doesn't have to watch it.

•If George W uses a heartfelt story of one of our brave troops, white guy gets to kick everybody once. Twice if the brave troop is a woman. Rags gets to kick the suit if Bush reveals the subject of the anecdote is in the audience. Twice if the brave troop is sitting next to an astronaut.

•Suit takes home the $60.25.

•Leftover beer, chili and guacamole go home with Rags after he/ she is finished washing the dishes.

Political Comic Will Durst is going to try and sneak into the event disguised as an astronaut.
