Word of the Day

For this game, you need to study the picture and come up with a headline and a parragraph explaining the picture.  Of course, top points will be awarded to the funniest and most creative!  When the game is over, I'll tell you what this picture is.  Remember:  You're not trying to "guess" what this is, you're just trying to make up a funny, creative headline and a funny, creative explanation of what it could be.  Have fun!  You can submit as many entries as you wish.


  1. Hair Club Invasion

    Miami, Florida. Panic swept the streets and beaches of Miami today, as the Supreme Commander of an alien invasion fleet announced the arrival of his forces. The Rugarians, as they call themselves have been living among our population for decades, concealed under the guise of The Hair Club for Men. Hair replacement technology has allowed the invaders to directly link with the brains of thousands of balding men, allowing the follically challenged invaders to steal vital defense information. They announced plans to next attack Donald Trump, stating that he is not from this earth either. No bystanders seemed surprised by this information. More news as it happens.

  2. Brain Donor Recipients

    The first ever "woman to man" brain implants were successfully completed this week. The first three lucky recipients (pictured above), were ecstatic to share their good news with the public. Darin Ayershire of Glasgow, Scotland was the first recipient. He proudly shared with us, "I had no idea what I was missing! I'm still getting used to the larger size in my skull, but now I notice all those little things I missed. How did I ever not notice that I was leaving the toilet seat up? How could I have overlooked all of those socks on the floor by my bed? And why did I never wear this color before?" The one downside, according to Mr. Ayershire, is that he is unaccustomed to the heightened emotional feelings associated with relationships. Said Mr. Ayershire, "I always thought my boss was a pretty nice guy, but now I just wish he would spend a little more time chit-chatting with me."

    Attempts were made to replace the male brain with chimp brains, but no cognitive improvement was noticed. Since these are the first successful woman to man transplants, a donor with lower cognitive abilities was used so as not to overwhelm the recipients.


  3. Wonka Workers Wack Off

    Disaster and Dessert struck this weekend as Oompa Loompas, Gary, Lary, Jerry, and Bill stole William W. Wonka's Flabber-Shnabber-a-tron and escaped the factory into the streets of the city. The machine, a new invention that will excrete green cottage cheese-like slime when inserted with chocolate, the core ingredient in Wonka's soon to be newest candy line.

    Unfortunately, the formula is still flawed, so the end result combines the effects of laughing gas and helium, minus the deadly attributes. The Oompa Loompas have hooked up a fire hose to the output nozzle and are raging about the city spraying innocent victims who, when coming in contact with this green goo, will immediately find everything extremely funny and begin laughing. Constricting voice boxes and hallucinations of talking candy items are other side effects of the viscous chemical.

    If you see these mini mayhem causers, immediately contact Mr. Wonka and the authorities of their whereabouts.

  4. OK, this game has been up for a week and we only have 3 participants. Anybody else want to play?

  5. Hint: If you forget to look for the latest Word Joust game, become a follower and the notification will shop up in your blog list. :)

  6. And if you're a player, you can also set your own blog settings to email you any comments.

  7. Well, because I've got a busy weekend ahead of me and then I'm going out of town on Monday, I'm going to go ahead and call this game. We missed those of you that normally play, but didn't play on this round.

    I liked everyone's entries. Mr. Giggles made me giggle with his reference that Donald Trump was "not from this earth". Delirious made me chuckle with her "woman to man" brain implants, especially when the guy said he'd just like his boss to chit chat with him. :0) But I laughed out loud at Archeantus' "Wonka Workers Wack Off". There is just something funny about Oompa Loompas, and I even think the little guys in the picture could pass as some Oompa Loompas. So CONGRATULATIONS ARCHEANTUS! YOU'RE THE WINNER OF THIS ROUND AND YOU GET TO COME UP WITH THE NEXT GAME!!! Woo-Hoo!

    By the way: The picture above was one that I took of a float in the St. Patrick's Day parade in Dublin 2 years ago. I wish I could tell you what the float was, but I have no idea. It might be Dr. Who, since that is very popular over there. We even got to go to the Dr. Who exhibit when we went to Wales. :0)

  8. woo hoo! my 1st win!
