Paper Telephone scans

Sometimes on a train

UP YOURS, SUNRISE.

Books
Jaws
Circus
Unceremonious
Beating
Graveyard
Dread
Contentedly

I enjoyed “Graveyard” and “Dread” quite a bit. Plus “Unceremonious” for ending with the saddest of sad little stick-figures.

The siren song of sock braces

A short little game this time around:

Classy.

Sea
Crowd
Piano
Gives
Look
Arm

I’m a fan of “Gives” and “Arm” in particular. And “Look” for representing the kind of dilemmas we all face on a daily basis.

Minor athletic social club

Apparently I’m still doing this! By which I mean both updating this blog and playing Paper Telephone.

Sobering.

Fence
Hoops
Options
Butterfly
Bellowed
Ballin’
Grave
Pain
Be
Boy

Ballin’,” “Hoops,” and “Bellowed” are my favorites. And special mention goes to “Fence” for taking us somewhere a little bittersweet. And colorful!

The gentleman with the raining head

Had a game of Paper Telephone with a crowd that was about half noob, half veteran. It was a good mix:

Father's Day special!

Games
Fondue
Crystals
Badger
Kitchen
Spider
World
Titillating
Family
Panda
Working
Christmas

I recommend “World,” “Family,” and “Panda,” because every PT page should end with a flowchart. The night’s Graphic Obscenity Award definitely goes to “Titillating,” as well as the Correct Latin Pluralization of “Penis” Award.

(The committee’s been waiting a long time to give that one out.)

The penguin’s expression

Hard to believe, but we almost went through an entire BotCon without a single game of Paper Telephone. Luckily the remaining few of us on Sunday night managed to pull this together:

To be fair, the glorification of dinosaur violence has not been causally linked to any upswing in actual dinosaur violence.

ROUND 1
Flames
Creeper
Cry
Crotch
Escalator
Fans
Death
Lincoln
Laser
Archer

ROUND 2
Mouth
California
Ant
Shorts
Grave
Girls
Coke
Stewardesses
Duran Duran
Doom

I recommend “Ant,” “Girls,” and “Coke.” Plus special mention to “Duran Duran” for giving us the transsexual, pantsless Beetle Bailey that King Features Syndicate has been denying us for decades.

Your brother’s umbilical cord

Man, I’m not even instigating this stuff anymore. I go to parties these days, and people demand it. Plus the average game has still been mostly newbies, so the meme continues to spread like wildfire in a hotcake forest.

Somewhere, a drunken aerospace engineer is saying the reverse.

ROUND 1
Drugs (buggery-related nudity!)
Couch
Vomit
Village
Carving
Hot
Blood

ROUND 2
Osama
Sundial
Torching
Care
Months

Highlights include “Vomit,” “Blood,” and especially “Drugs,” which manages to miraculously clean itself up after venturing into anal rape, multiple kinds of narcotics, and gory suicide. Would that I could’ve been so lucky in my own life.

(The poor DEA agent is so suicidal, he’s shooting himself AGAIN after he’s already blown his clearly-labeled brains out.)

No shirt, no shoes

First time I’ve played Paper Telephone in a bar! Pretty big group, too, with the core people being most of the same folks from last time. Everybody’d gotten their drink on to one degree or another at this point, so it’s as generally obscene as you’d expect.

Kids today, with their Shakespeare.

Cupcakes
Tricks
Ice cream
Environment
McDonald’s
Shortcake
Swimming
Princess
Music
Phone
Cheese
Baby
Brick
Rachel
Skeleton
Devil
Boat

Notables include “McDonald’s,” “Phone,” and “Cheese” (which I salute for its extended ode to boobies). Oh, and I love the very-last-minute ad hoc dirtiness at the end of “Devil.”

ALF and a ninja

At long last, I am caught up on my Paper Telephone scans. [applause] Though that probably won’t last for long, given how much these folks enjoyed it when I introduced it to them. Someday, the psycho-epidemiologists are going to pinpoint me as a prime vector for its spread.

As opposed to what I DID get, which I assure you was more than you deserve.

ROUND 1
Rack
Hair
Trouble
Snowing
Space
Barbie

ROUND 2
Triangles
Rabbits
Meeting
Dog
Love
Poop
Knitting
Evil
Breakfast

My favorites are “Space,” “Dog,” and especially “Evil,” which shows our culture’s remarkable familiarity with the theological tenets of Scientology.

(If you can’t draw Tom Cruise, volcanic Body Thetans will do it every time.)

WWBCD?

When my old friends jamesan and his wife came back to town, showing off their barely-formed larva, we had to play Paper Telephone for old times’ sake.

ROFLcon in the making.

ROUND 1
Smoking
Seas
Monkey
Internet
Swing
Forest
Raccoon
Hammer

ROUND 2
Robot
Animals
Peppermint
Giants
Bruce Campbell
Grim
Ill-smelling
Math

ROUND 3
Deadly
Rocker
Ow
Lightning
Treasure
Sun
Cowbell

I recommend “Seas,” “Animals,” and “Bruce Campbell.” But I think the game of the night was “Grim,” whence came the terrifying Panty Nose.

(You tell him it’s a poor fashion choice.)

Appliance Heaven

I didn’t go to BotCon this year, but I’ve heard that the Paper Telephony was meager and unremarkable. Could it be because I failed to post these scans from the previous BotCon? Depriving our PT community of inspiration and reinforcement?

Yes. Yes it is.

So, with inexcusable tardiness… the Paper Telephones of BotCon 2007:

I hope you're happy, young man.

ROUND 1
Cop
Ice Cream (nudity!)
Taint (disjointed nudity!)
Cut
Eagle (nude bestiality!)
Graveyard
Cheesasaurus
Drunk

ROUND 2
Stronger
Stripper (nudity, but… costumed.)
Severed
Dog
Ice
Liberty
Stan Bush
Boobs (predictable nudity!)
Terminal

ROUND 3
Gingerbread
Ratchet (non-consensual nudity!)
Ghost
Executions
Special Olympics
Rock
Walky
Turtle Power
Love
Kiss
Batman

I recommend “Cut,” “Graveyard,” and “Rock.” Also notable is “Special Olympics,” which gave us the legendary Masturbating Sunflower Negro.

(Probably best to keep him away from “Ice“s Klan Grandma.)
