Political Humor : TNB Matching Game

After a long week of national and international news that often seems like an unintended attempt at humor, it seems like the time is right for more overt attempts at humor.  To that end, TNB presents this week…

The TNB Matching Game, which bears conspicuous resemblance to an old game show.  Only without any physical prizes, no contestant trying to match responses, and with only some of the participants drunk.

Not every TNB contributor answered every question.  Many didn’t answer any at all.  Feel free to extrapolate from that truth and the “some of the participants drunk” portion of the preceding paragraph.

And unlike the original show, participation from the studio audience is very much appreciated.
