Let’s play the Paul Lee Press Tour Drinking Game. (Get your Mimosas ready.)

When brand spanking new ABC Entertainment Group prexy Paul Lee says…

“I don’t even know where the bathrooms are at the office,” take one drink.

Some consumer reporter asks him about the lesbian plot twist on “Pretty Little Liars,” chug.

Something about respecting and admiring the team already in place: Two drinks.

Funny quip about cutting his vacation short to make it back for press tour: A sip.

Reference to ABC Family’s success under his watch: One drink.

Full update on the harassment claims against Steve McPherson: Chug, ’cause it ain’t happening.

Lee made it back to town on Friday night — which means he’s had just one day to prep for his first outing as ABC Entertainment Group topper. What’s more, he hasn’t even stepped foot yet inside ABC as boss, given how fast this all happened.

ABC communications guru Kevin Brockman opened up the ABC session this morning by bringing out a stuffed pink elephant.

Brockman told reporters not to bother asking McPherson questions. Execs — including Disney/ABC TV topper Anne Sweeney, who’s here — aren’t gonna bother answering them:

“Tuesday we issued a statement announcing his resignation from ABC Entertainment Group.

But to save us some time and make today as productive as possible, Tuesday’s statement still holds. It’s all we are going to say on the subject.

Please know that is the statement. We will give it again if needed to. We really have nothing more to add.

And now… the non-news ABC Entertainment topper press tour session!
