Because of Hurricane Gustav, I delayed the start of this drinking game. But this is the best one ever:
Down a shot whenever any speaker uses some variant of the word “drill.” You must stop drinking for an hour anytime a speaker mentions “global warming” or “climate change.”
Now nothing can get you plastered as quickly as listening to a Bush speech on climate or energy and taking a shot whenever he uses the word “technology” — that can be a staggering (literally) 19 shots in 21 minutes.
But I do believe this is the only drinking game in recorded history where you can get drunk during the commercials! I bet a couple of Pickens’ ads — “I say drill, drill, drill” — would slow down even the irrepressible Alaskan supermom Sarah Palin pretty fast.
WARNING: Do not, under any circumstances, listen to the RNC while driving or operating heavy machinery like a drill rig or a single-hulled oil tanker near an Alaskan port….
