Weird Word Combinations
When vandals destroyed the recreation building of the megachurch across the street, they tore open a bunch of games. One of them was called "Guesstures" by Milton Bradley, based on the time-honored group game of "charades". There are two seemingly unconnected words on each card, and you have a specific amount of time to act out one of those words so people can guess what it is.
The cards were scattered about amidst the trash and broken glass. I didn't even really notice them until my eyes lit on some amazing word combinations. I laughed myself silly, and then picked up as many of the cards as I could carry home. Someday I will go through the rest, when I need a good laugh. Here's to "stupid artist", "pray closet", "nightmare aerobics" and "marbles mouth".
