Republican Senate Debate Drinking Game

We political wonks are strange creatures. Only we, of the entire human race, see a televised political debate as a reason to get together.

This Sunday night at 7 PM, we will be treated (?) to the Tennessee Republican Senate hopefuls on Channel 3. It seems like wherever we go, beer flows like wine. And it's just as well--- Try playing this drinking game with the hard stuff, and people will be so blotto that any bar where this game is played will turn into a de facto flophouse for those of us too hammered to drive home.

  1. Any time Van Hilleary speaks, he's going to say something nucking futty. It's just his nature. He's a right wing Mongo, only he doesn't know it yet. Any time he says something crazy, everyone has to shout "Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs". The first person to shout it is immune; Everyone else must take two shots.
  2. Any time one of the candidates blames illegal immigrants for the myriad of problems facing America today, everyone has to start singing "La Bamba". The person who knows the most lyrics is immune; Everyone else takes two shots.
  3. Any time one of the candidates mentions "gay marriage" or "family values", the first woman to sing the chorus of Jill Sobule's "I Kissed a Girl" is immune, and everyone else takes a shot. If it's mentioned in the context of a swipe at Julia Corker over the Facebook thing, everyone else takes two.

More to come... Got anything to add, Pam?

With Larry, Moe and Curley going at it, I'll have to put in some overtime just to pay for that bar tab...

I know what you mean, Pam. I probably should too, but I'll probably be way too hung over.

Nyuk nyuk nyuk and whoop whoop whoop to you this morning, lovely Pam.

Steve, actually, just the opposite--- The LAST person to have their liver run screaming from their body wins!
