    Misquote the poster above you

    I wa a fanatical player of this game in another forum that I have all but abandoned for nevermind reasons. I just realized how much I miss it.

    How to play:

    You hit the Quote button.

    Then (carefully so as not to mess up the quote code) you pervert whatever the previous poster said.

    Outside the quote, you make a snarky comment about what the pp supposedly said. That will be what the next poster will warp and comment on...and so on.

    Example -- I say:

    No one expects the Spanish Inquisition!
    ...which gets misquoted as:
    Quote Originally Posted by Matera the Mad

    And the misquoter "replies":
    Didn't I tell you to eat your vegetables?
    (or something much sillier)

    Okie-dokie, now I'll make another post that someone can misquote
    Inspiration can be as destructive as any other form of fire.

    You should watch your alcohol intake so you don't drink to excess.

    And always remember that body weight and food consumption can have an impact on how it affects different individuals.

    You get the same effect when you wrap a hog carcass in burlap, soak it in alcohol, and light it on fire.

    Only the very best of everything, which is what I always expect.

    Patience was a floosy.
    I take it you knew her in the biblical sense?
