The State of the Union is only just underway, but so far, nobody has yelled "You lie!" or promised to colonize Mars. But don't tune out just yet. Twitter provided a comprehensive rundown of the evening's potential game-changing moments:
Hrm, my leaked copy of SOTU calls for invading France. Fear this may be very early draft.
Tonight's checkmate moment will come when it turns out Colin Firth will be delivering the address. #sotu
Wondering if senators will be guided to the House chamber by a Japanese tour guide holding up an umbrella.
Boehner MAY cry: Reference at the end to "someone who began by sweeping the floors of his father’s Cincinnati bar" (h/t @mateagold)
SOTU draft contains the best smoked salmon joke in a presidential address in a generation.
President Obama is foregoing prepared text and will instead spend 40 minutes on breaking up the BCS.
SPOILER: In State of Union address President Obama will reveal extent of Jay Cutler's knee injury & his Pro Bowl pick!
Sure hope Obama spares a word or two tonight for the guys in jail.
