Tonight, the world will have the pleasure of watching Tina Fey and Amy Poehler host the Golden Globe Awards. So far, they've released two hilarious videos promoting the event, and in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the ladies outlined some ideas for a Golden Globes drinking game.

Their suggestions in fact go well beyond drinking, and include an eating game, and a Golden Globes version of strip poker. Here's the transcript:

THR: OK, so can you come up with a couple of rules for a Globes drinking game? Fey: Any time an actress cries in a speech, drink. Any time you see a person actively not listening to someone onstage, drink.

Poehler: Any time someone says, “I didn’t prepare anything!”

Fey: Any time anyone thanks Harvey Weinstein, eat a meatball sub.

THR: How about any time they show Judi Dench?

Fey: Yeah. You take off an article of clothing.

Poehler: Any time Maggie Smith wins.
