Forum Game--who wants to play yet again?

Recommended Posts

Teachin'Mine started this a while back, and it ended up on the Gen Ed board when we got the new system.

 

I thought this board would be a better place for it, so let's go again! Here's what I posted yesterday on the Gen Ed board:

 

 

 

I've missed this thread! Ready for a resurrection? No offense intended!

 

 

 

JAWM Lg Family Renting Hurdles

 

I don't know of a place that rents hurdles to any size family. Bikes, yes. Hurdles, iffy.

Whoever linked me to that diaper bag had better bring the bolt cutters. I know it seems like we're always hooked up to those things when our kids are little but this person is taking it too far!

Goals will never happen? See that net between the posts at the end of the field? Kick the ball there and it will happen. Good luck!

 

See... Now I kept reading this one as "Goats will never happen" and thought it was another Anti-Farm animal thread!

I thought it was s/o of the goals thread, also thought it said Goats will never happen! Here's why: we are too old to take care of farm animals and besides we live in town now.

Have you ever done a Beth Moore study solo?

 

Yes. It was the one on the importance of fellowship.

 

I haven't been on the boards in ages (I'm a lurker, though, so probably no one noticed, lol) but I couldn't sleep tonight and hopped on here. When I read that title, I was totally all, sure hope they have that forum game still goin'!

Can anyone share how the game works to a newbie?

 

When you see a thread title and think something humorous (smart aleck-y!) about it, you post the thread title along w/what the funny that came to mind. It usually ends up being some kind of twist on the original poster's meaning.

 

Like on Jean's recent post...the person who started the thread wasn't talking about goals in sports, but that's what it made Jean think of so she used that to turn it around to something funny.

And this was pretty much always done before, we used to post inside the targeted thread, which often was in poor taste, or totally derailed the thread. By having them all here instead, we still have our fun, but it's in more polite settings, if I may say so...

I haven't a contribution to the game at the moment, but I just wanted to add myself to the list of people who thought goats would never happen. And the idea of a world without goats made me sad.

"Whose Going to Tackle Saturday with me?"

 

I'll go with you just to get out of the house, but I just want to observe and not participate in the actual tackling.

Good one! My first reaction when I read Jean's "tackling" threads is to want to tackle HER! Too much pressure! :D

"I don't think there is a word. Is there a word like "minimalism?"

 

Actually, you'll be delighted to learn that 'minimalism' is a real word! Enjoy working it into conversation.

"What's up with underwear sizing?"

 

Since people come in a variety of sizes, it is essential to their comfort that underwear is available in a variety of sizes and shapes. One-size-fits-all is NOT an ideal situation for people who wear under garments.

Oh, my gosh! I just noticed that dh, the sneaky avatar changer, changed it AGAIN! That's hilarious! I was thinking to myself that it was so funny and looked to see whose it was--haha, it was mine! What a goofball he is!

Thanks, Jean. It's much funnier than the teeny tiny ears of corn sunbathing on the beach!

 

She looks like she should be on "Dogs of Walmart," don't you think?

Multiplication before BA?

 

Yes, that is one of the topics a student usually learns before a university will grant a Bachelor of Arts degree.

Mind you, in the case of a Bachelor of Arts, many think that multiplications should not be required.

Spelt?

 

Saying this gently...I think you mean spelled. That's the past tense of the verb spell. As in, "I spelled all four words correctly," not "I spelt all four words correctly."

 

Hth! :D

Actually, spelt is an acceptable alternative to spelled, though I think it might be more common in the UK than in the US. According to the American Heritage Dictionary:

 

spelt2pron.jpg (spebreve.giflt) KEY

 

VERB: A past tense and a past participle of spell1.

Edited to add: I would never have poked fun at this if I thought the OP was using poor grammar. As it was, the OP was talking about wheat, and the spelt/spelled thing just popped into my head. No offense intended.
