The Incredible Changing Sentence

Postby LucasBrown » Sat Jul 31, 2010 3:41 am UTC

The rules:
  • There are three possible actions: adding a word, deleting a word, and changing a word.
  • Exactly one action may be performed per post.
    Note that this means that, even if a discussion arises, the sentence morphs during each post of the discussion.
  • Messing with punctuation or diacritical marks does not count as an action--you can change punctuation or diacritics however you want, but that can't be the only thing you do.
  • Correct grammar is preferred, but not necessary.
  • The sentence must contain a noun, a verb, and at least one other word.
  • To eliminate confusion over what the sentence is, we shall put it in a quote box at the top of each post.
We will start like so:
Colorless green ideas sleep furiously.

is an invalid move--two alterations were performed. I'll assume the intended move was

and change it to
Colorless microscopic badgers chew fugitives.

Colorless microscopic badgers chew empirical fugitives.


Perhaps - instead of just changing words one at a time - people could be allowed to add phrases/clauses? By adding the construction, they would have <noun>, <verb>, etc... the next people would need to fill in any missing words on their turns before changing existing ones or adding new words. For instance, I could have written

"Colorless microscopic badgers, <participle>, chew fugitives."

Then the next person could have written

"Colorless microscopic badgers, regurgitating, chew fugitives."

All in favor say Aye? :D

My colorless microscopic badgers are empirical fugitives.

This actually makes a bit of sense. Basically, I'm claiming that I have colorless microscopic badgers, and they're "empirical fugitives" in that it's impossible to find any evidence of their existence.
