Morning Joe Executive Producer Teaches Mika Brzezinski How to Shotgun a Beer
Brzezinski read a excerpt from Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill‘s newest book where she admits that her daughters taught her to shotgun a beer in celebration of Todd Akin‘s primary victory. But afterwards, Brzezinski admitted she didn’t know how to do it either.
“How do you shotgun a beer?” she asked sheepishly.
“Is it chugging? I don’t know” said CNBC’s Michelle Caruso-Cabrera.
“What is ‘shotgun a beer’? What?” Brzezinski repeated.
Caruso-Cabrera tried to demonstrate the current technique “Don’t you put a hole in the bottom of the beer and do that? And then you suck it from the bottom?”
“That’s one way to do it,” chimed in co-host Mike Barnicle.
“One way?” said a now-confused Caruso-Cabrera. “Or shotgunning is when you chug it? Very, very fast all at once?”
But executive producer Alex Korson came to their rescue. “You cut a hole in the side of the beer, then you pop open the top so the air flow is much more, it comes out very quickly.”
