Fancy word game
« on: June 29, 2015, 02:39:00 pm »
So I came up with this idea for a little language game. as far as I've seen you all are really good at this so it'll be easy!
the goal of the game is to "translate" a sentence to an as fancy, classy or complicated way as possible.

you respond to the poster above you.
you translate their sentence and then post a casual sentence yourself. (please keep this nice and family friendly...I'm fine with suggestive lines, as far as they don't violate the forum rules. I don't think I have to explain, do I?)

so here is my sentence for the next poster to translate:
"no, I'm not coming to your birthday party."
Passion is like a Peatfire

I shan't be able to attend the superfluous celebration of your aging.

I am going to the store for some bananas.

I shall proceed to attempt to purchase the fruit favored by simians.

Since no sentence is provided here is a random one from a book that's laying close by:

"Tell her to not sell the grog"

Inform the lady it is not permitted for her to exchange the adulterated rum liquor for lucre.

Please explain why you have not entered a resting state.

A spry Vulpes Vulpes leaped over Canis lupus familiaris as it lay idly by.

I am sorry for forgetting to post a sentence last time. (Yep use that)

I wish to express my regret for the lapse of memory which resulted in the omission of a suitable phrase from my previous communication.

It is pleasing to find my self residing within a littoral vista.

Can you please stop wanking off to dog porn in my presence?

Is that a gun in your pocket or are you just pleased to see me?

I asked for family friendly lines...not pawing off to yiffing dogs...
Anyway:
Can I request you to stop pleasuring yourself while looking at canine beasts having intercourse?

Are you carrying firearms or is it sheer joy upon seeing me?
How are you doing today?

(I fixed it! Eventually. Then in order for it all to make sense I put it back in; but striked it through. Although you now have a clear incite into the mind your dealing with; in a word; Filth. But as I can't get away with run of the mill, ho-hum, common or garden filth. I'm now forced to get creative........ RIGHT! On with the game!)

I would like to press the enquiry regarding the nature of your health; positive or negative, during this fine period of illumination by the sun.

I find myself rendered immobile due to the handy work of a hull full of seamen.

Wiggle it just a little bit.

I suggest you allow it to perform a modest amount of vermiform movement.

I seem to have a problem remembering to give another line.

Try this on for size.

My airship has developed a leak of hydrogen.

 What is the latest  popular culture trend on the social net working  internet sites?

 Steampunk - has it got too mainstream ?
