The Leonard of Quirm Renaming of Everyday Objects Thread

Postby Tonyblack » Fri Sep 24, 2010 11:15 am

Another thread gave me this idea for a game. Each person posts the name of an everyday object and the next person has to give iot a name as if Leonard of Quirm had invented it.

They then post another everyday object for the next person to rename.

For example:

Vaccuum Cleaner:

Device for lifting particle of dirt from dwelling places by the means of suction and transplanting into a paper bag. :D

The transfers words quickly and electronically for business and personal use system*

*Note: Testing phases show this is open to abuse, I have recorded ten transfers so far including: offers for assorted blue pills, who can give me 'a good time' and inheritance money from the far east if I provide personal details. All written in poor English - must investigate these strange anomalies.

Next word:

Blue pill :twisted: (please keep it clean lol)
