debate drinking game
Posted by papalovesmambo 2004-09-30 08:31:00


ok, now i know a lot of us will be watching tonight's debate. to make it a bit more fun and interesting i propose a bww drinking game to go with the debate.

we choose 10 words or phrases that when uttered compel you to drink (for thoe of you who are underage, feel free to play along with a soft drink of your choice). they should no be ridiculously common phrases or we'll be blind drunk 15 minutes into this thing. now the theme tonight's is foreign policy so that's where the questions will focus. to add to the list, cut and paste the list into your post with an explanation and we can vote on the top 10 later today.

my suggestion for number one is:

1. swift boat
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.

1. swift boat
2. vietnam
3. national guard
4. al qaeda (or al qa'ida, whichever you prefer)
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.

good choices so far. pipe up folks. i think you'll hear all of these but only #4 will probably be excessive (we might all be loopy on that phrase alone).

oh hell, fair, we won't even make it past the first half hour with that one unless we're doing baby sips with some good old fashioned 3.2 beer.

"nuke-u-lar"

I wonder if Kerry or the questioners will try to get Bush to say it!

pick one, ck

i doubt lockbox will get in in this one, it'll probably get saved for the domestic issues debate most likely but it might make an appearance in the town hall debate (if that one goes through). god's a good one. nucular will probably make it in more than once too.

I'll go with United Nations.


Will there be a tally and a prize for who's word appears the most?

If we include God, we'll be drunk by the time the first red light goes off.

what's really fun is the light comes with a sound effect too! i'm really hoping it'll be the old "shut up! sit down!" from jerry springer.

Damn wedding rehearsal. I'm gonna miss this, I think. Though we may look for a bar that has it on. We can do it with shots, if I get the list by 1pm. :)

I almost wish my classmates would do this. The thought of a giant outdoor debate screening attended by drunk college students is just hilarious.

re: debate drinking game

a giant outdoor screening at a college? i'd say the chances for drunkeness are high, plum.

Well...on the one hand, we aren't exactly a party school. On the other hand...a few people don't consider Thursday too early to get smashed. So we'll see. :P

Most likely, the debate itself will drive us to drink.

No presidential debate EVER will be as entertaining as watching the clip of Gore Vidal and William F. Buckley facing off on a TV talk show. Classic and brilliant stuff - what happens when gaseous planets collide!

re: debate drinking game
Posted by papalovesmambo 2004-09-30 20:07:40


well, i'd hazard as to say that both of them are probably smarter than any president in recent memory. if only for the fact that both had sense enough not to run for national office!

re: debate drinking game
Posted by DGrant 2004-09-30 20:23:02


Papa - that may be the truest thing you've ever said - and you've stated a lot of truth!

That's how I feel about the only politician I've ever REALLY liked - Barbara Jordan - who ended up getting disgusted and going back to teaching.

hey if we hadn't gotten drunk while watching the debate and chatting on a musical theatre message board, the terrorists would truly have won. don't you see, they hate us for our freedom.

Broadway Matt... your posts make me laugh. And your icon reminds me of some cannabis smoking fiend right out of "Reefer Madness". Too funny! You're gonna have some big 'ole hangover in the morning pal! A hair of the dog that bitcha should do the trick. Happy October 1st!

according to Oprah, Airborne is the ultimate cure for hangovers.
and if you're not crying into your maker's mark over the depressing state of the nation... you're probably george bush.

Or someone who'd prefer to focus on the future during the juncture of time during which we have the greatest opportunity to change it.

re: debate drinking game
Posted by feinstein9 2004-10-01 01:12:53


well, that also. but we can't undo the damage done in the last four years, and *that's* what's depressing. i can't imagine what the world might be like if j. ker loses (i have to find cutesy names for everyone). anyone up for another korean war?

re: debate drinking game

Did anyone else notice when Bush said A.Q. three times in one sentence?


Suggestions for the next debate drinking game:
"my opponent"
"more of the same"
"under my leadership"
"in my plan"
