Telephone!

Remember sitting in a circle whispering something into somebody’s ear, then they whisper it to the next person, and they whisper it to the next… and when it is all said and done the original phrase has become unrecognizable?

Telephone. Classic stuff.

Well, everything old is new, and bloggy, again. I have been tagged by Jeff from View from the Cloud to be the next to pass the phrase in this version of Telephone. I get to put my spin on the phrase below and then pass it along to the next guy. That would be James from Daddyshack.net The rules are laid out below by Fracas, the creator of this rendition of Telephone.

***Fracas created this game, and because only one person gets to play at a time, consider yourself a real fraccer! Here’s what you gotta do. See those 3 asterisks at the start of this paragraph? Copy from there to the three asterisks at the end of the post. Then, add your line and change one word. JUST ONE. It’s like playing the telephone game when we were little. Then tag ONE person and pass it on. If the game gets stalled at someone who doesn’t play, fracas takes it back and sends it on its way again. For playing, you get links… and you get to take this badge and display it with a link back to the telephone page so your readers get to see your contribution! If you want to be part of it, please leave a comment at the telephone page at fracas and fracas will add you the next time it comes back around to her, but please don’t just start doing it yourself as that will ruin the proper flow.1.

That’s all for now folks, but visit the telephone page later, and there’ll surely be a new twist! ***<!–[if !supportEmptyParas]–> <!–[endif]–>Well, there you have it. I tried to mix things up a bit. I think my change may open this phrase to take on new direction. Who knows. I did exhaustive analysis on the pros and cons of swapping out this word over that word. Hell, I even made a table that shows how long each word had been in use and how many times each slot have been swapped. Pathetic, right? Check it out…

Pretty, huh? I was going to try to swap out a word that hadn’t been swapped yet, but by using Australians, I pay homage to my inexplicable affinity for things Australian and as I mentioned possible open things up for different directions. Enjoy watching what happens.

  1. Great job Pat, you certainly have put some thought into this!

    I was thinking that changing “the” to “their” would help spin it off in a funny direction, but then who wants to be the one responsible for changing a word as boring as “the”?
