A hot piece of history sex. Known for his 4 failed runs for the presidency and his amazing ability to form compromises in a pig-headed congress. Responsible for the Missouri Compromise and the Compromise of 1850, which in fact DELAYED the Civil War for 10 years, giving the North time to grow strong enough to defeat the south, meaning Clay is the reason slavery no longer exists. Not related to the devil. A cult favorite of AP US history students. And hot. Did we mention hot?
Henry Clay is my homeboy.

Henry Clay is a drinking game, combining the games of flip cup and power-hour. From 4-8 people is best, and each person is on his/her own team. Instead of messing with the up-down-up foolishness that accompanies flip cup, once the song changes on the power hour, the competitors know when to drink and flip. The last one to flip is eliminated. Keep playing till you get a champion, and then start a new game without interrupting the power hour. Note: Even though a competitor can be elimated, he/she must drink every time a song changes.
Connor always lost at Henry Clay because he was never ready for power hour song change.
