We have a black sheep in our midst!   And what did @krista4 say? When I was ~12, we had a plant that looked like pot growing in our kitchen.  I asked my mom what it was, and she gave me

OH JFC

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.

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!).

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!

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:

POLITICS

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.

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.
