Yesterday, the inimitable Something Awful posted the Presidential Debates Drinking Game.

The game works through a few standard levels; i.e. "take a sip" "take 3 sips" "finish your drink" levels. The last level, though, is "consecrate an altar to Dionysus" and lists things that the writer swears will never happen.

so the OMGWTF ('cuz this is a commentary on a web humor site) quote (from the "Consecrate an altar..." section): …George W. Bush finally admits that the Iraq war against Saddam Hussein was just a case of confusion over the spelling of "Bin Laden".

We all knew the Daily Show had a better bead on what's happening than anybody else in TV media. Who knew, though, that a bunch of internet goons would an impossibility so close to what really happened?

i love the daily show, so i checked out the article link..
what really surprised me was the demographic listed for the Daily Show poll/viewers.

... wow?

myself, i'm on the low end of the curve, educationally and in the earning bracket.. the very low end of the curve.. but at least i seem to be in good company.

great post, danke. ^_^

..oh ja! and your other post about the debate teams rating the speakers - odd, i would have thought they'd score Bush low for manhandling and leaning on the podium. seems to me that indicates lack of self control, and poor performance anxiety handling. hunh. ah well. good reads, all.

Ooo…I enjoyed that drinking game link. The last line was truer than I would prefer to admit,

“As an alternative to playing our drinking game, feel free to just watch the debates after already making yourself drunk. At least that way when you feel like you're going to throw up you can pretend it's because of the alcohol.”
