**New Sentence-an Old Game** A DoubleDragon/Hydrant/thisistheshow production

thisistheshowthisistheshow Posts: 9,386 ✭✭✭✭✭

In another thread, I mentioned that something DD wrote ("mother nature can be such bums") reminded me of one of those sentences that has perhaps never been written or said before. Hydrant said that reminded him of the old game where people try to come up with such sentences and that it would be a good thread for the NFL off season. I agreed, and said that I remember there being a rule (when I played this, or was it a dream, lol) that you can't just insert a name... I gave the example that this would not meet the criteria..."thisistheshow was the greatest QB ever". You guys get the point.

So, let's play. If anyone wants to suggest rules or improvements, feel free!!

    OK. I will start.

    The only hope is in finding the difference between inception and overly pedantic instruction.

    ETA: thanks for the idea hydrant

    Nope. 543,895 years ago a Neanderthal ‘player’ approached a Nean hottie with the hopes of getting a date. When he got to her he lost his nerve and in a state of pure panic spewed out those exact words.
    Thanks for playing it was a good try.

    No shame in my game. Failure will not send me running. It's all about playing and having fun, so here goes another one...

    I know that the reminders are all perfect but physically I'm a mess.

    In all seriousness, you are supposed to play like this... I know that the reminders are all perfect but physically I am a mess with the black spoofing of expectations risen up and onto my skin from within and sitting there like dermatic dandelions.

    There you go, my research couldn’t find that sentence ever being used although it was close. Grok the Cro Magnon once uttered something similar however he finished with “dermatic thorns” as he thought ‘dandelions’ didn’t sound manly enough for a magnon.
    Nice score showman!

    PS... Both Dermatic Dandelions and Dermatic Thorns would make excellent band names. And why does my computer keep underlining dermatic? Is it not a perfectly good word?

    eta: Dermatic Dandelions has now made an appearance on my list of my favorite DD's, which is topped by Dee Dee McCall from Hunter, with our own @doubledragon a distant second.

    Whatever my fellow forumites are doing this late Saturday evening, it can't be as much fun as we are having on this thread. Jealousy does not become you...

    Another quick story about the "Mother nature can be such bums" sentence. Back in the 90s, I went on a camping trip with my uncle in the mountains of Colorado in the summer, we had this little Coleman brand gas cooker, it was a mini grill type thing and you had to hook up a can of gas to it and you could put a little frying pan on it and cook stuff. So, we had our tents set up and every night around 6 p.m we would cook on the little gas cooker, and just like clock work this raccoon would show up, evidently he could smell the food we were cooking, and he would pop up out of nowhere every evening and hang around our camp looking for a taste of our meal. It was amusing because he was obsessed with us and our food, always looking for a handout. So one day, we decided to move our camp just to see what he would he do, so we moved our camp a good distance away, and sure enough he followed us and continued his campaign of harrassment against us. We could not eat a meal in peace without this raccoon in our face wanting his cut of the action. But that's not the end of it, we left camp one day to go into town and get some stuff, and when we came back to our camp, there was a hole in the side of my tent and Merita bread was strewn everywhere, we knew what had happened, the raccoon had clawed or chewed a hole in my tent and stolen a bag of bread from us and the bag had ripped open and some of the bread had fallen out. This raccoon was ridiculous, I remember one night at 2 a.m. I woke up to the sound of crunching, this raccoon was outside our tents going threw the trash and he had found some leftover chips in a bag and you could hear him crunching on the chips, he was such a bum! But he was hilarious and entertaining, he would eat anything you would give him, I remember he loved those Little Debbie honey buns. And it's funny, raccoons have these little claw-like hands, and they can kind of stand up like a person and he would stand there with a honey bun in between his claws like a person and munch on it, he was hilarious!

    See, they can stand and they have these little hands, and they'll eat anything you give them.
