Ah yes, the State of the Union address. Aside from the usual rhetoric, a lot of people played drinking games as they listened first to Obama propaganda followed immediately by the GOP propagandized response. "Fair share" was a killer for those playing the game last night.
Either way, Obama got his point across with his usual swag, so that’s why they came up with a drinking game that made his speech a little bit more exciting. Obama is known for his most common terms like, "Make no mistake" or "Let me be clear".
So, everyone takes shots of their favorite beverage according to the list of phrases, terms, words and occurrences that took place as Obama spoke.
The State of the Union is just a speech in which Republican and Democrats make it clear which party they are with and what they support. In the drinking game, you tell every one of them to go to hell with every drink you take while looking out for the really important parts like buzz words and politicians sleeping.
Last night's phrases were, "Fair, divisive, the middle-class, working men and women, we’ve made great progress, creating jobs, let’s finish the job, put Americans back to work, the wealthiest among us and bipartisan.
If your game also included the words, "Me or I", chances are you were hammered by the end of the evening. If your drinking game had the words, "nine percent unemployment rate, Presidential or Congressional rating, Solyndra, illegal immigration or Operation Fast and Furious", you were probably the designated driver for the rest of the drunks.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming:
A man and a woman are sitting beside each other in the first class section of the plane. The woman sneezes, takes a tissue, gently wipes her nose, and shudders quite violently in her seat. The man isn’t sure why she is shuddering and goes back to reading. A few minutes pass. The woman sneezes again. She takes a tissue, gently wipes her nose and shudders quite violently in her seat.
Assuming that the woman might have a cold, the man was still curious about the shuddering. A few more minutes passed when the woman sneezed yet again. As before she took a tissue, wiped her nose, her body shaking even more than before.
Unable to restrain his curiosity, the man turned to the woman and said, "I couldn't help but notice that you've sneezed three times, wiped your nose and then shuddered violently. Are you ok?" The woman said, "I am sorry if I disturbed you, I have a very rare medical condition. Whenever I sneeze I have an orgasm."
The man, more than a bit embarrassed, was still curious. He said, "I've never heard of that condition before. Are you taking anything for it?" The woman replied, "Pepper!"
A woman was complaining to her girlfriend, "I don't have a boyfriend or a husband, I can never get a date and guys just don't seem interested in me. I don't know what's wrong with me." Her girlfriend said, "You know what? I know a Chinese doctor that can help you," So, her friend gave her the doctor's address and the next day she went to see him.
The woman tells the doctor what her problem is and the doctor says, "Take off your crows." The woman asks, "What, what did you say?" The doctor repeated, "Take off your crows", motioning for her to take off her clothes. The doctor continued, "Ok, now craw to the window." The doctor said, "Craw to the window", as he got down on all fours to show her what he meant. So she crawled to the window. The doctor said, "Now craw back to me" he says motioning her to come back.
The doctor thinks for a moment and says, "Ah-ha! I know what your problem is." The woman anxiously says, "Well, doctor, what is it?" The doctor says, "You have Ed Zachary disease." The woman asks, "What is Ed Zachary disease?" The doctor says, "Your face looks Ed Zachary like your ass."
A young reporter went to a retirement home to interview an aged but legendary explorer. The reporter asked the old man to tell him the most frightening experience he had ever had. The old explorer said, "Once I was hunting Bengal tigers in the jungles of India. I was on a narrow path and my faithful native gun bearer was behind me. Suddenly the largest tiger I have ever seen leaped onto the path in front of us."
The old man continued, "I turned to get my weapon only to find the native had fled. The tiger leaped toward me with a mighty 'ROARRR!'.... I shit my pants." The reporter said, "Under those circumstances anyone would have done the same." The old explorer said, "No, not back then - just now when I went ''''ROARRRR!''''".
