The neverending story.

post #1 of 121
Thread Starter 
I have done this 3 times before.. and someone managed to copy it from me before... anyways, this is basically like word assosciation --but requires a bit more thought and creativity. You contribute a sentence, paragraph, page, or whatever you feel can lead on the preceding post/passage. You should never say "The end" or try to end the story. Whatever you contribute should start and end with "" to show that it continues the preceding post and so that it can be continued.

Any outside comments not for the story should start with "--"

I also hope that the AI Crowd can be a bit smarter/more creative than a pantomime horse that is addicted to marijuana and suppositories so much that he dies (I hope no MacNNers read this board!)

Let's begin...

--YOU messed up jamie, Steve was on the phone!. Who was the guy who tapped the shoulder?
post #32 of 121
...springing into action. The agent who tapped our hero on the shoulder grabbed the flying lightsaber, Monkeygirl pushed a button on her watch, and they both went shooting up after the arm and flying umbrella.
