Hate boring political speeches? Spice them up by playing BS Bingo! Missed Obama’s Sep. 8th jobs speech? Be ready next time!
DISCLAIMER: I do not claim authorship or origination of this idea; it’s been floating around by email for some time and there are even interactive versions available online (links below).
Based on the Sept. 8th jobs speech, you may want to add a new list of phrases to your play sheets. Here is my suggested list of phrases to add for variety: supported by both Democrats and Republicans; pass this jobs bill; more jobs; tax cuts; tax relief; now I realize; we can’t afford; every American knows; will not add to the deficit; this isn’t class warfare; this is simple math; I reject the idea.
Below is a sample card to print and have copies on hand when an Obama speech in announced for television. Below the play sheet below are the rules for BS Bingo. You may prefer to play the interactive online versions such as BingObama.
Rules for Bullsh*t Bingo:
- Before Barrack Obama’s next televised speech, print your “Bullsh*t Bingo” play sheets
- Check off the appropriate block when you hear one of those words/phrases.
- When you get five blocks horizontally, vertically, or diagonally, stand up and shout “BULLSH*T!”
Below is an Obama speech video for your practice. Enjoy!
