A Fox News co-host has decided that the only way to watch President Obama’s State of the Union address is by drinking to oblivion, and he devised a drinking game to help you do exactly that.
“Our sorry state of the union calls for a state of inebriation,” “The Five” co-host Greg Gutfeld said Monday. “So here’s a drinking game for the president’s address tomorrow.”
He then listed the game’s simple rules.
“Every time he says, ‘Folks,’ drink,” Gutfeld said. “Every time he says, ‘Fair share,’ drink. Every time he says, ‘Extraordinary,’ drink. Every time he brags about working tirelessly, drink.”
Gutfeld went on with similar calls to raise one’s glass, making it clear that most people wouldn’t last 10 minutes.
Here’s Gutfeld’s suggestion, via Fox News.
Twitter users picked it up on the game right away, beginning with this observation:
#thefive Greg Gutfeld on Obama SOTU speech tomorrow: ‘The only shovel-ready job Obama has created is White House Speechwriter.’

There was also a call to action, which gave me a hangover just thinking about it:
I’m gonna play Greg Gutfeld’s potus’s sotu drinking game tomorrow! Who’s with me?

Several also picked up on one of Gutfeld’s more colorful phrases suggesting that the president’s speeches were turning into their own brand of sedative. Here’s an example:

Although the game sounds fun in theory, I personally don’t want to die of alcohol poisoning.
