TV Drunky: Betty White Drinking Games for SNL Tonight

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Yeah, it's the weekend, so there's no TV Junkie. Instead, may we offer this (one time only) TV Drunky, dedicated to tonight's momentous television moment.

We love Betty White here at LAist, and are beyond thrilled that the 88-year-old television veteran is going to serve as host of Saturday Night Live tonight. Making the rounds on the internet are a few takes on a way to make the evening fully interactive, including a couple of Betty White Drinking Games and Betty White Bingo, all of which are meant to make a threesome of you, some booze, and Betty. Well, Betty as host of SNL, that is.

If you are up for some Bingo, or, rather B-E-T-T-Y, you can head over to the Bachelor Guy to print out the cards you'll need to play along. But you can also have some (responsible!) fun with just a bottle and a few items to be on the lookout for.

The BachelorGuy has also got a straight up action-reaction drinking game, which prompts you to sling back a shot of your desired poison at several instances, which include moments if/when:

--Betty White swears
--A female cast member hits on Betty
--Betty White plays Tiger Woods girlfriend
--Fred Armisen plays Bea Arthur

...and a dozen more.There's another more intricate drinking game making the rounds, thanks to Flavorwire, which has directions like:

--You must drink every time Betty White does something that reminds you of Rose Nylund
--If Jay-Z and Betty really do a sketch together (it’s being reported), take one sip every time Betty makes you laugh, and three sips every time Jay does
--If Facebook gets namechecked in the opening monologue, take a drink

...and many, many more.Of course, you can always come up with your own set of rules and activities to take the hopefully hilarious evening to a whole new level. Tell us in the comments what commands you'd include in your own Betty White on SNL Drinking Game.
