Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade Drinking Game
The folks at ChicagoNow have created a set of rules for what they’ve dubbed the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade Drinking Game. It should make your get together more fun – or at the very least, bearable.
-- Whenever the float features performers from a Broadway musical or play, take a drink.
-- Drink when you hear the word "fun".
-- Take a drink whenever someone from an NBC show is interviewed
-- Take a drink if you have no idea who the "famous" person(s) on the float is. Drink twice if it's someone who appears to be under age 21.
-- When you see Snoopy, take a drink.
-- Drink when the announcer is clearly faking enthusiasm for what they're announcing
-- Take a drink every time someone on television says the word "Wow".
-- Drink whenever the announcers imply the float is alive. Examples: "I hope this rain doesn't make SpongeBob quadruple in size!", "I bet Snoopy wishes there was a float of a big doggie bone!"
-- Whenever you think, "Are you kidding me?" for any reason, take a drink.
-- Drink whenever you hear "Macy's".
-- Whenever you see a turkey in any form, or hear the word "turkey".
-- Take a drink whenever you think, "I can't believe that when I was younger it never crossed my mind that this is just one big Macy's commercial with smaller, short-lived commercials floating by on moving stages within it.".
-- Drink every time a musical performer messes up the lip-syncing.
-- When Santa comes at the end, drink. Drink twice if you don't celebrate Christmas.
-- If anyone calls it the "Macy's Day Parade" make them drink. This is Thanksgiving Day, not Macy's Day
