new one: You start with a description of something:

Example: a member starts with (as slow as treacle in January.. going up hill.)
then: YOU have to continue with "as slow as" and finish the sentence.
Example: (as slow as a turtle on sleeping pills).
as soon as two sentences are done, a member starts a new one.

Here is the first start: "as dumb as......."

my first experience at this:

"as dumb as a box a' rocks being tossed at jocks in smocks"

is that right? Ah, I KNOW it's not right, but, is it right??

I did that in post #32 and was sort of told that I wasn't following the rules so I've just been standing by until I learn the rules. :)

Dcam
10-06-2017, 12:04 PM
:lol: Ok since I am the author: here is a good example:

member posts "as dumb as a doorknob"
next member posts " as dumb as post".

another member sees that two sentences have gone by so......must start a new one.
"as fresh as a daisy"......and waits with delight, the next "as fresh as.... :smug:

snoball
10-06-2017, 12:09 PM
