“DUDE! It’s Me, Hurley!” – The Drinking Game!

Everybody loves Hugo!  Don’t believe me?  Just check out the episode title for next week’s installment of Lost.  And, really, what’s NOT to LOVE about Hugo “Hurley” Reyes?  After all, he’s cuddly  . . .

and funny.

He’s good with kids . . .

 . . . and dogs.

No matter where he is, Hurley can always be counted on to bring the party . . .

. . . and the good food.

And our main man Hugo is ALWAYS down for a good road trip (even if you forgot to take the Dead Guy out of your van).

Speaking of dead people, did I mention that Hurley sees (and talks) to them?

Or that he’s a lotto winner?

So, in honor of this week’s Hurley-centric episode, I propose, for all you Lost fans out there, a little Hurley-themed drinking game.  The game should last throughout the duration of “Everybody Loves Hugo” (assuming you don’t pass out before then).  All you need? An alcoholic beverage of your choice,

(Beer or wine will work best.)

a bottle of hard liquor,

and your favorite snack (or snacks).

Here’s how to play:

(1) Every time Hurley says the word “Dude,” you take a shot.  To get an idea of just how many shots you will likely have to take, check out this lovely video.

(2) Every time Hurley says “The Numbers,” or utters any of those ever-important numbers, recite the numbers out loud, and take a sip of your alcoholic beverage.

If you forget to recite the numbers, or fail to recite them correctly, take a shot.

(3) Every time Hurley is shown eating, take a bite of your snack and two sips of your alcoholic beverage.

(4) If Hurley is shown running, run in place for ten seconds, and take a sip of your drink.

If you FAIL to run for ten seconds, take a shot.

(5) If Hurley sees or talks to a dead person, take a shot.

If the DEAD PERSON is JACOB, take two shots.

(6) If Hurley makes a meta-reference to science fiction or the mythology of Lost, cup your hand to your chin, and say “Hmmm, verrrry interesting,” with a European accent.  If those comments are made to MILES, take a bite of food, and a shot.

(7) If a reference is made to Mr. Cluck’s Chicken, stand up, do the funky chicken for ten seconds, and stuff your mouth with a wad of food.  (Oh, and take a shot, of course.)  For those of you who don’t think this will come up, check out the faux-commercial that debuted at this past year’s Comic Con.

And for those of you out there who DON’T watch Lost, but suffered through this post anyway (There may be one or two of you out there.), here’s a little treat for YOU!  It’s those old school Muppet Babies, with a Hurley-inspired twist . . .

Happy Drinking!  See ya Tuesday, DUDES!

[Note: My pal, Amazon Annie, says, “Play ‘Dude!  It’s Me, Hurley’ at your own risk . . .”]

  1. lol, if i did this i would be stupid drunk, which actually might help with the presentation i have to give on wednesday en espanol.

    also why isn’t Muppet Babies: the LOST years a show yet?

    • You know . . . HURLEY speaks Spanish. His flash-sideways MAY even have Spanish SUBTITLES! So, if you end up hung over and slurring your words a bit, just tell La Profesora (or El Profesor?), that it was all done in in the interest of “research!” 🙂

      Lost Muppet Babies: The TV Show . . . now THAT is a spinoff that would be fun for the whole family!

      Good luck on your presentation, by the way! I’m sure you will rock it. (How does one say “rock it” in Spanish?)

    Hey KJewls, that was hilarious, even though I don’t watch Lost. I would, however, include a warning and a disclaimer!!!! Never Drink and Drive (from Mother’s Against Druck Driving) This is your brain ( smart ) this is your brain after playing the Hurley Game ( zero ) . Hurley is a professional….DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME! Just in case there are impressionable young adults or even dumb old adults (myself included) that are fans of your blog….tell them j/k! Thanks for the fun….your blog always makes me laugh!

    • Awwww Killjoy! 🙂

      Well, thanks to your comment, impressionable young adults can hereby consider themselves forewarned. 😉

      I’ve actually read the legal cases on this type of thing, and I think I should be OK. Besides, if any hungover Lostie wants a deep pocket to sue, they have a WAY better chance of getting dough off of fictional Lotto Winner Hurley, than little ole’ me.

      Thanks for looking out for me, Ms. Annie!

    Drinking may be the only way “Lost” makes ANY sense ;-p

    In other news – GLEE!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • LOL. So I caught the last HALF of Glee . . .

      (REALLY, FOX? 9:28? OPPOSITE Lost? For a season premiere? After THREE MONTHS of hiatus?)

      Suffice it to say it was toe-tapping, finger-snapping, Will Schuester kissing, Sue Sylvester VOGUE-ing, awesomeness . . . but I will reserve full judgment until after I’ve seen it in its entirety :).

    Girl you need a damn DVR!!!!

    Also – I am going to only wear track suits from now on ;-p

    And? Jane Lynch RULES! I am building a shrine to her as we speak.

  5. OMG, so I am REALLY hoping none of you actually played this game! (And I know you didn’t, because Amazon Annie told you NOT TO . . . ;)).

    Because, if you did, here’s what you would have found:
    * Four “Dude” References = 4 shots.

    * Two conversations with Ghost Michael (and one FAKE conversation with Jacob, which I WON’T count, because Hurley lied about having it.) = 2 shots

    * Two Mr. Cluck’s Chicken references / shout outs = 2 shots, 2 funky chicken dances, and 2 mouthfuls of food

    *Two scenes featuring Hurley eating = 4 sips of alcohol and 2 bites of food

    * One scene featuring Hurley running = 1 run in place and 1 drink sip

    *One meta reference . . . made to MILES = 1 “hmmm, that was interesting,” 1 bite of food, 1 shot.

    EVERYBODY LOVES HUGO GRAND TOTAL: 9 shots, 5 sips of alcoholic beverage, 5 bites of food, 2 funky chicken dances, 1 run in place, 1 “Hmmm, that was interesting.”

    This is a recipe for LOVE, that’s for sure. It just may be more about loving your toilet, than anything else . . .
