Drinking games are a proud (or not-so-proud) State of the Union tradition. One congressman is going the wholesome route with a classic game of bingo.

Mark Takano, a California Democrat, tweeted out his version of good old-fashioned fun.

Takano urged his followers to be on the lookout for such phrases as “I’m treated very unfairly” and “[Insert minority groups here] love me.” 

You can also blot the box if the president sips water, mentions “caravans” or “mentions how smart he is.”

But one option didn’t make the cut,  Takano joked: “I know words, I have the best words.”
