“Whenever a Letter to the Editor contains an accusation that The Spokesman-Review is too liberal in its reporting or editorializing, take a drink.
“Whenever a Letter to the Editor contains an accusation that The Spokesman-Review is too conservative in its reporting or editorializing, take a drink.
“Whenever the Letters to the Editor has a letter accusing The Spokesman-Review of being too conservative AND a letter accusing The Spokesman-Review of being too liberal on the same day, drain the bottle, pot, pitcher of whatever you're drinking. If the two letters in question are right next to each other, this draining must be done in one long, uninterrupted chug.”
Reader challenge: Invent a drinking game to be played while reading The Spokesman-Review or perusing www.spokesman.com.
The beverages in question need not be alcoholic.
I'll get us started.
Every time The Slice uses “Let's move on,” take a sip.
Every time The Slice poses a question that you strongly suspect was used in 1992, down your glass.
As the T-shirt says.
I had challenged readers to come up with a drinking game based on watching Spokane TV news.
I'm not really encouraging people to mindlessly consume alcohol. I just wondered what readers might suggest.
And a friend, who noted that if this weather keeps up we're almost certain to have a white Christmas, had a few ideas.
He named names and all. But, even though this blog is pretty obscure, I have no wish to be considered a big meanie. So I've decided to leave out the names. Still, perhaps you will recognize a few of these broadcasters despite that.
Every time a certain gentleman says “weather-wise,” you drink.
Every time a certain anchor smacks her lips, you drink.
Every time another anchor tacks on an unnecessary tone-restatement — “Tragic situation,” “Thoughtful cab driver,” et cetera — you drink.
And then there's one that would have every game player hammered in short order.
Every time someone says “Reporting live,” you drink.
