After being here for a while I think it’s time we had an official BBS drinking game to capture some of the fun and quirks of this place both for posterity and for newbies to get a feel for the place.
While this is a drinking game, alcohol is not necessary. Non-alcoholic beverages are an acceptable substitute. Either way, play at your own risk. THIS IS SPARTA!Your bladder will suffer.
If you’re going to mention a member, be sure to keep it fun and lighthearted. No personal attacks.
This is a wiki post, so if you have something to add, please edit this post to expand it.
The BBS only allows for 10 mentions in a post. If you add a new mention, you’ll need to remove the @ from an old mention.
Take a sip when:
- @doctorow posts some well intentioned but misleading FUD
- When an anonymous adverpost uses pronouns
- When there’s an adverpost for smoking-related paraphernalia
- @jlw curmudges
- @nemomen posts a hedgehog-related picture
- “Christ what an asshole”
- “Late stage capitalism”
- @beschizza posts a horrifying 'shopped Trump image
- @Donald_Petersen goes off on a lengthy personal anecdote that’s almost but not quite entirely off topic, and just barely amusing enough to avoid flagging, which reminds me of this one thing my brother showed me outside Alfred Hitchcock’s old office on the Universal lot back in 1986…
- @Papasan offers a hearty “Roger That!”
- @Mindysan33 or @Melizmatic posts the perfect reaction .gif
- Arguing about the pronounciation of “gif”
- Someone expreses their disappointment in BB.
- “Gentleman” used in a post title (as a code word for “asshole”)
Down an entire bottle when:
