My little brother is probably the coolest kid I know. He lives far away now and I miss him, so I called him earlier this week and suggested we resurrect an old game of ours via telephone. What game, you ask?
The movie drinking game.
Here's the general outline: we pick a movie neither of us has seen. We make up drinking game rules, without knowing how applicable they'll be. We drink. This has gone wrong on a couple of occasions - for example, when we watched 29 Palms, we were supposed to drink when anyone said 'bag'. That movie, turns out, is about a stolen bag of money. Yeah.
Our flick last night was Rumplestiltskin, from 1995. It was awesome. My head hurts.
Here are the rules we chose (a * indicates that this happened and we drank to it):
- if someone is wearing a green shirt
- if someone spills *
- if there is a horse or goat or llama
- if a woman screams 'not my baby' *
- if there is an obvious reference to another horror movie
- if someones hands get dirty and they look at them in a shocked manner
- if we see Rumplestiltskin's nipples
- if a big guy kills a little guy (this is a standard no matter what movie we're watching)
- if a little guy kills a big guy (ditto) * (we may have been mistaken here - we thought Rumplestiltskin was a little guy but it later appeared that he was just crouching down)
- if someone barfs
- if someone drops silverware
- if someone kicks a dog
- if Rumplestiltskin kills a pet
- if we see bottom half nudity *
- if there is a really gross bone breaking *
- if something happens that we can specifically trace to a conversation we had today *
- wacky computer action (this one is a new standard and is awesome - basically, if someone uses a computer to do something that computers don't do, or does something like hacks into the pentagon in three minutes, etc)
- if the movie has it's own theme song with lyrics (new standard)
- if there's a super animal of any kind
That's six drinks, yo.
Here's the progression of our conversation during the movie as recorded on my iPad. All grammatical and typing errors have been left in. You know, for authenticity.
