Haiku Madness
After posting a reply to this thread, I've come up with a new game that's sure to sweep the nation: Haiku Madness.

Allow me to explain. The thread of note was about the disappearance of the actor who portrayed the character Boner on the old sitcom 'Growing Pains'. The title of the thread: Boner Gone Missing.

I replied stating that Boner Gone Missing sounded like the beginning of an interesting haiku, which I then completed and posted:

Boner gone missing
She doesn't shave her armpits
Wanna play Yahtzee?

Anyway, I thought we could make a game of this. The rules are simple: write a haiku using the previous poster's final line as your first.

In other words, the first line of the next haiku is, of course, Wanna play Yahtzee?

And away we go.

Wanna play Yahtzee?
You'd best not, I'm too lucky.
