The phrase "in these troubled times" - has turned into a Buzz Out Loud Drinking game after the hosts mention the word in relation to a story related to the recession. The phrase is now commonly prefixed with the word *SHOT* because of this game.

There is also a mug that was found by a member of Buzz Town, on one side it says "in these troubled times," and on the other side, it says "Drink." The mug can be found here.
