Morning Joe Executive Producer Teaches Mika Brzezinski How to Shotgun a Beer

vlcsnap-2015-07-30-09h48m56s725Host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe Mika Brzezinski got a bit of a lesson in frat house drinking techniques when the show’s executive producer and her guests had to explain what “shotgunning” a beer meant.

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.”
