newwavepony recently shared a favorite party game with the Something Awful Forums. Here's the tl;dr description of TL; DS: "The basic idea is that you go around in a circle and each person describes a movie they've never seen, with funny results. So get someone to describe a movie they've never seen, then draw their story. It seems like this might work especially well with little kids, your out-of-touch in-laws, or non-Americans." Skeptics might say the "friends" that follow don't actually exist, and that the movies said apocryphal friends "didn't see" were in fact seen and goofily summarized by the posters themselves. But this is no time for cynicism! Earnest sincerity is "in." Goons asked real friends and got genuine answers! God made the farmer!
(Movie titles either appear as part of the artwork or are hyperlinked to the artists' screen names.)
Are you concerned that you may be a character trapped in a Tom Waits song? Be smart and learn the warning signs before it's too late. Also, it's too late. It has always been too late.
I'm haunted by a recurring vision of a skeleton flipping me off. To avoid seeing this terrifying image in bumper sticker form, I pay someone with a blank bumper to drive in front of me at all times.
