Standing in Line

Summertime is a great time for family reunions! My own family is having one soon. In honor of this time of year, your job is to come up with four one-line statements about your family's reunion. As usual, creativity and humor is encouraged! As the judge, I also love alliteration, puns, and rhyming!!


The candy cannon creates a cacophony of cheerful cries!!
We think he's insane for not using a cane.

Those of you who have ever read Boy's Life know about Tom Swifties. It is when Tom says something, and then the verb you use instead of "said" is something that makes it funny. Or you can use it with said.
Your assignment is to come up with a half dozen Tom Swifties.
Here is my example: "The electricity is out!" Tom said darkly.
As usual, creativity counts for everything.

We just happen to be in San Antonio right now and will be here until Friday.  :0)  (Btw, I heard Sam is here - or was, not sure if she still is - on her honeymoon!) Anyway, we went to the Alamo this morning and I got a chuckle out of a quote by Davy Crockett.  The story goes that Davy Crockett ran for a seat in congress from Tennessee in 1835.  He said to the people in his district that if he lost, "You may all go to hell and I will go to Texas".  He did lose, and a year later he went to Texas and died in the battle at the Alamo.

For our next Word Joust Game, you must create a situation and then come up with a quote.  Get creative and make it one that might go down in history!!! :0)  Happy Jousting!!!
