Rachel's Blog: 2007 Oscars: The Bit After That

Mon, 26 Feb 2007

See, Al Gore and Leo Dicaprio - compatible height. Guess Leo's not the star we thought he was. ;-)

If you're participating in an Oscars drinking game right now please take an extra swig for that appalling Gore vs the orchestra joke.

Drinking games - not something I've ever been interested in. I prefer my food to stay inside me. But I was thinking it would be easy to reinterpret them as a strip game.
So here I present my rules for Strip Oscars:

Take a piece of clothing off every time:
You laugh at a scripted joke.
Someone slips on stage
An animated character appears to actually be on stage
Someone's speech is boring
You take a drink

Put a piece of clothing back on every time:
Someone thanks God/Jesus/other religious personage
The orchestra cuts someone off.
An otherwise talented actor can't disguise the fact that they're reading from a teletext.
A film appears in a medley that you can't identify

Suggested amendments happily taken by email

And the best part is that you can play it solo. In fact I'm taking my left sneaker off right now...
