----- Bullshit Bingo:
1. Before Barrack Obama's next televised speech, prepare your "Bullshit
Bingo" card by drawing a square -- I find that 5" x 5" is a good size --
and dividing it into columns -- five across and five down. That will give
you 25 1-inch blocks.
2. Write one of the following words/phrases in each block:
Â· Restored our reputation
Â· Strategic fit
Â· Let me be clear
Â· Make no mistake
Â· Back from the brink
Â· Signs of recovery
Â· Out of the loop
Â· Job creation
Â· Fiscal restraint
Â· Affordable health care
Â· Previous Administration
Â· Empower (or empowerment)
Â· Greed on Wall Street
Â· At the end of the day
Â· "The former administration"
Â· Touch base
Â· Corporate greed
Â· Game plan
Â· Inherited as in "I inherited this messâ?
Â· Relief for working families
3. During Obama's speech, check off the appropriate block when you hear one
of those words/phrases.
4. When you get five blocks horizontally, vertically, or diagonally, stand
up and shout "BULLSHIT!"
Testimonials from past satisfied "Bullshit Bingo" players:

"My attention span during speeches has improved dramatically." - David D.,
"What a gas! Speeches will never be the same for me after my first win."-
Bill R., New York City
"The atmosphere was tense in the last speech as 14 of us waited for the
fifth box." - Ben G., Denver

third time in two hours."- Harry A, Charlseton
This is really a terrific game. You and all of your unemployed friends can
share those special moments at family get-togethers, religious or government
holidays and even at month's end when your application for food stamps was
denied again because you earn over $14,000 annually. Remember to include
all of the kids in the fun. It's a great way for them to learn about the
future that this administration is creating for them while they are still
young and can't apply for handgun permits yet to protect themselves from
upcoming food riots.
