The Land of the Doubles
« on: August 17, 2005, 07:08:42 pm »
Well. This is a game I've played on another forum... if you've heard it before, just have fun along with me. Rules are: you can't discuss your guesses or solutions with anyone else - to verify whether you've "gotten" it, post another duplet. Don't worry, you guys'll figure it out. (Some of you much faster than others; when you do figure it out, you'll smack yourself).

Anyways, on to the game!

In the Land of Doubles...

There is cheese, but no mice;
There is a noose, but no rope;
There are apples, but no pie;
There are Emmies, but no trophies.

Now it's your turn....

There are kittens but no cats
There are Trees but no Saplings
What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

There are vacuums, but no suction.
There are eels, but no fish.

there are clocks, but no time
there is spaghetti, but no meatballs
there is cracker, but no jack
I have been told
not by one but two of my lovers
that I've got a heart of gold
but I'm unable to share it with others
They call me a poet who'll never have a poem
a tiger with no taste for bone
I'm the wonderful wonderful wizard who's waltzing alone

We can't, you have to figure it out on you own, sorry.  :-\

I am sleepy, but not tired.
You are clueless, but not dumb.
There are sheep, but no goats.
There is soot, but no ashes.

There are corrections, but no wrong.

In the land of doubles...

Things are funny, yet there are no jokes;
Fires are fanned, yet there is no smoke;
People are running, yet none have fled;
Flames are yellow, and none are red;
