That’s just great. Nothing like hot cockles.

Sounds like the concept of a game somehow got invented before the concept of fun.

And I think there’s a Monty Python sketch to be had here. Guys approach their friend, start telling him about this game they’ve invented and would you like to play. Only each round of it gets more and more absurd. So the friend ends up thorough confused and apopleptic over how this doesnt make sense and isnt fun…
