Think el pooperino is not a valid emoji here. Will have to think outside the bowl.

Are we talking New York Post headlines or like 1790 chapter headings or like David Brock-type ones?

Because I can do that.

We're talking whatever brings out the votes for your submissions.

Hags, I’m not sure if you’re aware of this but this board sucks and sometimes people post emojis and all I see is a little square instead and other times people post emojis and I see kind of a sad black and white scribble of the emoji.  I think these are somewhat common issues, I hope they don’t screw up your game at all.

That's unfortunate, but thanks for the note. We'll just try to make it best we can for this game and avoid altogether in the future if it's undoable for folks.

Are we supposed to write a story, or just a headline?

Just fill in the blanks for the first prompt.

I'm learning more and more by the day now that I am a terrible instructions writer. Please answer the prompts with words instead of re-using emoji. The second set of prompts are definitely more open-form; I don't expect everyone to turn them around on a tight deadline (we're not really a newspaper, gasp!).

For your second prompt, I am asking you to write a very short blurb.

I realize it might just be me that is tickled by the concept of this game. If it's a flop, oh well. I think it should be fun though!

The emojis are the facts you have about the prompts. Use them to create the 2 different news pieces.

Let's play: What's the News?

To be in, please PM me 4 emoji/forum emoticons. You can have repeats if you so desire. What you send me will be combined with other emoji in differing quantities, then I'll give you prompts on how to make news about the emoji that has been sent in. There will be voting on your submissions to determine who makes the best news stories!

This game will run smoother if you keep all PM conversations with me open for the duration of the game. In the past I have said that I delete all PMs as I receive them. In this case, I think it would be best to save the conversation in its entirety.

That wouldn't be the goal for this exercise, but that is an interesting concept.

It would be more like Quiplash, where you're just trying to think of a snappy "headline" to the emoji news article.

But for now, we send you 4 emoji/emoticons and YOU will construct the "news article", right?

That's correct

 

In the first round, I sent out 4 different prompts. They have ____blanks____ or [fill in this type of word]. Use the emoji I sent back to you to formulate what the news is about. Example:

Had I sent you

Lawmakers enact new bill that __________________.
It's being called the ________________.

 

Here's what I might expect in return:

Lawmakers enact new bill that provides funds for summertime school field trips to national parks.
It's being called the "Roll off your couch and learn something Act" by sponsoring congressman.

i think that the thing that was especially hard about this was that almost all news items now are about COVID, which really constrained my thinking.  so i had a few beers and decided i didn't give a #### and just ####ed around with it

Sent. I guess one good thing to come out of my submission, is that I have realized how horribly unfunny I am. It's not going to stop me from trying, but self-knowledge is good.

Let's fire one of these up next week, hags. If you don't have the time, I'm willing to do it. Or assist. 

I don't think we ever finished the last one...
