There are several good debate drinking games out there, but I’m taking a different tactic. I mean, if we all drink every time someone says “main street,” we’ll be hammered in the first 10 minutes.
Instead I intend to drink every time someone in my Twitter stream does one of the inevitable…
-tweets inferring personal intellectual and political superiority from a person who regularly live tweets, with emotion, Honey Boo Boo
-or The Bachelor, that Toddler show or any of the those Housewives
-self-righteous tweets from people who are too intelligent to watch the debates about not watching the debate
-tweets using “talking points” to bash the other side’s “talking points.”
-tweets bashing Fox or MSNBC
-tweets with passive-aggressive emoticons :-0
-tweets with any version of “Mic Drop” or the sound that results (BOOM)
-tweets with intellectually superior facial responses **eyeroll** or sounds **sigh**
-tweets using the Daily Show as a source of domestic policy data
-tweets with the words Romney and “helmet hair”
-tweets about “work” Jim Lehrer has had done or his apparent inability to blink his eyes
-tweets affirming sappy candidate marital stories
-tweets with the words contraception, girly bits, lady parts, vagina
-tweets with anything at all in ALL CAPS
-tweets about candidates related to subjects not even remotely being discussed
-tweets with the phrase “I love how (insert candidate’s name) loves (insert dogs, kids, trees, wife, doing laundry, the state of Wisconsin)”
Derek has pointed out that with my version, we’ll all be drunk in 5 seconds.
I accept that challenge.
