I rather liked Mattara's game, and thought it had potential (for imagination that is - HINT HINT ), but it was shut down when it became too silly. With Evo's permission (granted), and Mattara's permission (pending), I'd like to start it again, but with some boundaries. 1] Reply with an object that "beats" the previous object in some healthy and undeniable way. Replies should be of the form Y [verb]'s X. Things disallowed: a] no going back in time. (i.e "no gas" as a reply for chainsaw disallowed) You can act upon the object that was brought, but you cannot change what was brought. b] no people or actions (man refilling tank disallowed, though I guess can of gas is allowed) c] no fictional objects or half-baked theoretical objects (repealing nature) d] no repeats - an object can only be used once e] no hammers! (And let's see if we can get a single thread going, rather than multiple branches - though I don't know how). I'll start it off: Pen writes post.
