Explanation of Game
: Analogies are written in simile form using "like" or "as". Item/Expression 1
is like Item/Expression 2
, explanation of likeness.
The next poster takes the second Item/Expression
and makes another analogy from it.
First Poster: Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get.
Next Poster: A box of chocolates is like a vacation, you only end up enjoying half of it.
Next Poster: A vacation is like sex, you should try something a little different each time.
And so on...
Try not to return to a previously used Item/Expression
, but if you do, you cannot duplicate the explanation of the likeness. Also, no reusing of Item/Expression
pairs regardless of order. Any violation of the above rules can be pointed out by the next poster, and that poster has the option of starting a new analogy. If the rules are broken and the subsequent poster doesn't catch it, play continues.
Now to get started, with a tip o' the hat to xkcd 636
Sex is like a velociraptor, despite your movie-fueled lifelong neurotic obsession, unlikely to be found in your house.
