Whatever Matt Feels Like Posting

This is where I post my incoherent ramblings. It's where I post the coherent ones, too!

Telephone game @ 09:27 pm

Right now I am annoyingly: bouncy bouncy
Soundtrack: Dido - Stoned

I just thought of something. You see, on the Homestar Runner Wiki Forum, in the Forum Games section, there was a game where you have to edit the previous person's comment and comment on it. I loved it until off-topic discussions on the HRWF were locked, and just now thought of something: What if I recreated it here?

So here's what you do:

1) Click "Leave a comment" or "Will me 1-Up" (depends on if you're reading this from my journal or your friends page).
2) Quote the previous person (excluding his/her quote).
3) Edit the quote some (at least a little, and don't make it completely different).
4) Below the "quote", comment on it.
5) Keep it relatively clean.
6) If you edit a quote to say something derogatory about someone, your comment MUST be something like "Hey, be nice!"
7) If you like this game, link to this post from your journal.

For example, if the last comment was:

I just ate some macaroni and cheese.
You didn't share it? SELFISH!

you could say:

You didn't scare it? GO FISH!
Wrong game!

If you don't get it, don't worry. I'll be playing this too to help you figure it out.
Start with this:

Let Olimar push the slush!

Did you read the whole post?

Alrighty then. I'll do a few rounds by myself to demonstrate further.

Continuing from the random starting post ("Let Olimar push the slush!"):

Let Olimar pull the slull!
What's a slull? Is that like a skull?

What's a slull? Is that like macaroni and cheese?
Um, yeah, it is... *evil grin*

Um, yeah, it is... *evil Snapple*
Good for you, visiting Ours Will You 1-Up!

Good for you, eating Ours Will You 1-Up!
Are you sure? I hear Ours Will You 1-Up is fattening.

So do you get it now? If so, start from "Are you sure? I hear Ours Will You 1-Up is fattening."

Re: Did you read the whole post?

Sorry, this one must have been meant for me, and I think I must have just been tired because I get the game now, it wasn't anything about Olimar that confused me, it was just a tired brain and reading....sorry if not replying made you think I didn't understand! Sometimes I mean to go back when I am more awake and reply to your replies and just forget.

Re: Did you read the whole post?

(Explanation to anyone besides us who happens to revisit this entry even later than we did: Some drama on LJ that happened much later made it seem not only plausible, but likely, that a lot of my old entries and comments - including this one - might make people, even my LJ friends, hate me, so I linked to all of the posts that I was worried about.)

I only linked to this one because I've been worried that the "let Olimar push the slush" phrase itself sounds more like a weird innuendo than I had thought when I first wrote down backwards lyrics to Orinoco Flow, not because of this game being confusing.

(If you don't think it sounds like an innuendo, though, then I guess it isn't.)
