election night drinking game

This weekend on the drive back from campaign work in Pennsylvania, my friends and I wondered what would be the best word for drinking games during election night coverage, i.e. the word that, when said by someone on television, would be the prompt to take another drink. Although I myself have never played a drinking game, I came up with what I thought was a good answer: 'landslide'.

What do you think, Reader? What should be the word for drinking games on election night?

In the same vein as 42's comment: "historic".

Anonymous @ 1:36, what election coverage are you watching? Because I want to be watching THAT.

Assuming that you don't really feel the need to go to work in the morning, I'd recommend the cue following words for a drinking game:
- Ohio
- North Carolina
- Florida
- Missouri
- Colorado
- Nevada
and the one putting the whole thing over the top and sending you to the emergency room:
- county.

The scariest word on election night could very well be 'county', the suggestion by Anonymous. Recent precedents from this decade include 'Broward County', 'Palm Beach County', etc.

I figure the more times the word "county" is said, the more I'll need to be self-medicating anyway.

I'm not a big fan of drinking games--I don't need anybody to TELL me to finish my drink, thankyouvermuch.

Instead, I'll be playing Election Night Bingo--you can download the cards here: http://urbzen.com/2008/11/03/election-bingo/

Cheers!
