The 12 Days of CHRISTMAS: Telepictionary 38

Postby EvilJekyll » Wed Dec 07, 2011 5:43 pm

So this idea came to me last night, and since we haven't had a Telepic in a few months I figured this would be a good time to start one.

The basic idea is this is the 12 days of CHRISTMAS, but with a twist. We take turns doing the line-->picture-->line format, but you must include x! objects (for x=5, 5 a's, 4 b's, 3 c's, 2 d's, and 1 e; such that a-e are objects) in your pictures/lines. Lines should follow the "12 days of christmas" phrasing (we'll see how this goes?,) but you can add whatever you want after it.

Example:
    Line: On the first day of christmas Eggplant Mike gave to me, a bowl of chili in a on a carpenter's knee.

    *Drawing of Eggplant Mike giving RSG a bowl of chili on a dismembered carpenter's knee*

    Line: On the second day of christmas RSG gave to me two purple rugs, and bowl of chili in a on a carpenter's knee. Man that guys really sucks at giving gifts. What's next three genie's in bottles?

I will have to send a list of items used to the next linespeople, unless we just want to wing the items list and see what we end up with.

This is highly experimental and open to suggestions and revisions, so let me know in your replies what you guys think.

Revisions:
As per James, "each item...has to be four syllables."
As per Chrism, the objects are interpretable from the drawing by the line-writer, except for item one.

Signup list:
Reds are lines, Greens are drawings.

Technically 24 spots, unless my explanation is lacking (probably the case.) We'll just see how many people sign up.

Do you have a preference of line or drawing?

I want in as well. No preference, except that I want the objects to be determined by the person doing the next line, with the possible exception of having the first line published in the thread because one object will be impossible to determine.

Just to be clear, you want each line person to describe the objects in their own words from the previous drawing? So if there are 8 eggplant mikes, someone could describe them as purple puppets with green berets, leading to probable hilarity and confusion? :D

Anyone else wanna weigh in?

What if it has to fit the metre of the song; i.e. each item other than number five has to be four syllables (including descriptive verbs, extra vowels, etc.)? Too restrictive?

We say "five golden rings" in America. Or I do anyway. Do things as I do them.

I'll take either a line or a drawing at any point in the game.

I've heard that before, but I much prefer the overextended vowel. That's why "ARE WE NEARLY THERE YET?" will always be trumped by "ARE WE NEARLY THEEE-EEERE?".

Yeah, it's better that way. Things are better this way.

I have no preference. I'm just saying this as prior warning in case you decide to solicit my opinion in the face of disagreement; I won't provide the support you seek.

I know, right? You'd think they'd have the hang of this English language thing by now. :n/

If someone wants to take the first drawing, we could get this started, and fill in the rest when more sign up (hopefully.)

Well we obviously aren't there yet: the car is still moving. But we might be nearly there. It's simple logic. Or a syllables thing. I'm not sure. I'm definitely right; I just don't know the reason yet.
