Rip-Off Wednesday #12: M*A*S*H for kids!

Today we will rip off the children's fortune telling game known as MASH. There are two options for playing, either follow the really complicated instructions below or just play an online version and post your results.

The goal of MASH is to guess the player's future through a game of chance. It is played by at least two people: the player and the fortune teller.

Being the Player
The player will post a list of things s/he wants in the future, choosing two things for each category. "MASH," which is an acronym for Mansion Apartment Shack House, is always at the top of the list and acts as the options for dwelling. The other categories are as follows:




# of kids



Being the Fortune Teller
The fortune teller (if you have never played MASH before, being the fortune teller may be confusing...if you're not totally lost already) will choose a 3rd option (usually something absolutely horrible) for each category and add it to the list. The fortune teller will then find his/her magic number by adding the digits of his/her birthdate together, eg. if you were born on the 5th of the month, your digits are 05 (0 + 5 = 5). Your magic number is 5. If your magic number is 1, add the last digit of your birth year to it. The fortune teller uses the magic number to eliminate the player's choices via the method espoused in the Wikipedia entry. The fortune teller then posts the results of the player's fortune.

Please see the comments section for an example. The fortune teller need only post the results of the game.

Godspeed, Mr. Rauschenberg

In honor of Robert Rauschenberg, we are going to create combines, an art form for which he is famous. However, instead of making ours out of paint and sculpture, we will describe our objects with words.

How to create an ipost | upost combine:
1) Look around the space you are in and choose several objects you find there.
2) upost a comment describing a way of combining those objects into a cohesive work.
3) Title your combine.

Alternatively, you may add an object from your space to someone else's combine and/or alter the titles.

Pick the wrong song and you'll get the rotten tomatoes.

As the closing credits begin to roll at the end of the movie of your life, the audience sees you riding off into the distance. What are you riding on/in? What is on the horizon? And what song is playing in the background?

Thanks to Shyla for the ipost.

The City that Never Sweeps

Q. Do you know why Philadelphia is known as the City of Brotherly Love?
A. Because somebody with a healthy sense of irony made up that name.

Not just for some, but for everyone!

Burt Bacharach and Hal David wrote a song featuring the lines:

What the world needs now is love, sweet love
It's the only thing that there's just too little of...
Is there anything else of which there is just too little?

PS. Hal David, minus two points for the dangling preposition.

ipost | upost is kind of a big deal

The metro, "the world's largest global newspaper," featured ipost | upost in their "Blogarithms: A look at the best of the blogs" column on Cinco de Mayo, 2008 in Boston, New York City, and Philadelphia.

Thank you, metro! We here at ipost | upost greatly appreciate the nod. Here is the ipost about which the metro writes.

Mad Libs Mondays make babies cry...I mean, sleep

This one has a lot of blanks, but I think it will be a classic!

In order to complete this mad lib, fill in the spaces and click "Create Story." In some places, you will have to repeat the same word. For instance, you should put the same plural noun in every time you see "Plural Noun 1." If blanks do not have a number, a different word should be used each time.
