The Inauguration ‘Live’ On Hulu + Drinking Game

Obama Hulu Inauguration

If for some odd reason you’re unable to access a TV today…If you’re boss feels that President-elect Barack Obama’s inauguration as the 44th president isn’t as important as a sales call, then here’s a solution:

According to Alley Insider, “NBC Universal (GE)  and News Corp (GE) joint venture Hulu will stream President-elect Barack Obama’s inauguration live Tuesday.” You can watch it on Hulu.com/inauguration, or feel free to watch it below on this blog.

If you’re not at work, then I suggest the official “Barack Obama Drinking Game”. The SF Weekly’s blog – The Snitch perfectly detailed out the history and rules, which are as follows:

Take a small sip of whatever you’ve got if:

  • Obama mentions his wife or family by first name;
  • He mentions Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, or Harry Reid;
  • He mentions Martin Luther King, Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, or his own numerous Kenyan relatives;
  • “Hope” or “Change” is uttered;
  • He talks about puppies.

Take a moderate sip, if:

  • He mentions John McCain or Sarah Palin (or winks);
  • He mentions some random American from a swing state who’s up shit creek health- and economics-wise;
  • He uses the terms “crisis,” “meltdown,” “Depression,” or “Ponzi”;

Drink liberally, if:

  • He connects the departure of George W. Bush with the most well-known term from his home state: “Aloha”;
  • “Allow me to express my feelings with this brief interlude of interpretive dance”;
  • He quotes Dick Cheney;
  • He quotes Cheney and follows it up by clutching his heart and shouting “Here I come, ‘Lizbeth! It’s the big one!

Go on a rampage, if:

  • Profanity is uttered;
  • Obama has the Rev. Rick Warren finish the speech for him in an act of bipartisanship;
  • He mentions that betting a dollar in Vegas that a black man would be sworn in as president in the same year the Arizona Cardinals went to the Super Bowl would make you a millionaire many times over.

Is it a lame game? yes. Will it render you useless for the rest of the day, yeah probably.

(*Remember to stop at 3pm or you pass out whichever comes first.)
