Bad ideas for forum games v2 (READ THE RULES FIRST)

Go To

Yes, we just had this. Berrenta agreed we could bring it back, provided there's a ground rule:

Nothing in bad taste. If you don't know what this means, look at the last thread. This game is more about weird/boring/pointless ideas, like this:

  • Rate the line between the above poster's post and signature
  • Do you even know who Bill Melendez is?
  • Have you the foggiest what the above quaint phrase is?
  • Guess the above poster's third cousin twice removed
  • ITT: We are watching paint dry

This game isn't everyone's cup of tea, you may find this game just a neutered version of the old one. It's more in the vein of this game, actually. Too much of that other stuff will get this thread locked, and posts may be thumped to preserve our dignities.

Start!

Use google translate to translate the above poster's signature into Yiddish, and then take that translation and translate it into Japanese, and then back into English. Post results.

@Tranquilis: I would actually pay to make that a real game, with the rap battles included.
