Let’s play Bullshit Bingo!

Rules for 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:

. . Restored our reputation

. . Strategic fit

. . Let me be clear

. . Make no mistake

. . Back from the brink

. . Signs of recovery

. . Out of the loop

. . Benchmark

. . Job creation

. . Fiscal restraint

. . Win-win

. . Affordable health care

. . Previous Administration

. . Greed on Wall Street

. . At the end of the day

. . Empower (or empowerment)

. . Touch base

. . Mindset

. . Corporate greed

. . Ballpark

. . Game plan

. . Leverage

. . Inherited as in “I inherited this mess”

. . Relief for working families (alternate – “unprecedented”)

3. 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:
