Have fun on Turkey Day with this Original Drinking Game:
To play you will need the following:
* A bottle of your favorite spirits.
* A shot glass.
* A seat at the table during dinner with your family or a reasonable facsimile.
Every time someone says, “If I eat anything else, I am going to burst” – TAKE A SHOT
Every time someone compliments the host/hostess on the bird, “Gee Aunt Flossie, this turkey is so moist!” – TAKE A SHOT
When the gay or lesbian cousin/son/daughter uncomfortably introduces their date/partner to the other guests as “My friend” – TAKE A SHOT
When the host/hostess proclaims, “I forgot the cranberries!!” – TAKE A SHOT
If someone says, “I hate sweet potatoes.” – TAKE A SHOT
Every time a relative says, “I can’t believe its Thanksgiving already.”- TAKE A SHOT
If someone follows this up by saying, “It’ll be Christmas before you know it!” – TAKE A SHOT.
If the host/hostess is playing holiday music in the background – TAKE TWO SHOTS, you’ll need them.
Per food compliment (“great yams” “excellent stuffing” “fabulous turnips” etc…) TAKE A HALF SHOT.
Family arguments that escalate to physical confrontations – TAKE THREE SHOTS
Inappropriate sexual remarks made by anyone to any of the other guests. – TAKE A SHOT
Depending on how many there are, TAKE A SHOT, per passed out guest on the sofa in the living room while football game is one – if pants are undone, TAKE A SHOT AND A HALF.
If some one curses out someone else – TAKE A SHOT: If they are related: TAKE TWO SHOTS.
When the first big dramatic proclamation occurs (“I’m gay” “I just quit my job” “My therapist says that I am so screwed up because of you, Uncle Jake!” “Yee haw, I just got my third DWI”) TAKE A SHOT (Note, IF YOU MAKE THE PROCLAMATION, YOU HAVE WON, THE GAME IS OVER).
