10 Rules For Tomorrow's Goldman Hearings Drinking Game

Discussion in 'Wall St. News' started by nutmeg, Apr 26, 2010.

  1. Tomorrow the Goldman Senate hearing commences.

    Thanks to commenter Resurrect Barry Goldwater's idea to turn this into a drinking game, we decided to make things interesting.

    We're open to amending the list so if you have any good ideas, post them in the comments section.


    -- Anyone says something like, we don't bet against clients --> 1/2 shot

    -- Anyone says, we didn't take a one-directional "bet" --> 1/2 shot

    -- Anyone says "bet" like it belongs in quotation marks --> 1/2 shot

    -- For every derivatives acronym --> 1/2 shot

    -- Anyone cries --> 2 shots

    -- Anyone mentions "vampire squid" --> 2 shots

    -- Witty (or not) puns on the word "ABACUS" and calculating --> 3 shots

    -- Tourre speaks in French --> 3 shots

    -- Fabrice refers to himself in the third person --> 3 shots

    -- Blankfein says he's doing "God's work" --> Drink everything you've got
  2. Lol!

    I can't watch during work, can you post results and I will do my shots tomorrow when I get home? :D
  3. -- Acted in the best interests of our clients --> 1 shot

    -- sophisticated investor--> 1 shot

    "Congressman, seriously, are you even able to balance a checkbook or is it true you have had more than 10 NSF checks since you been elected to office? How the hell can you possibly understand what a CDO is and how they are put together?" --> not sure how many shots but that would be priceless....
