Questions Only
Just like the game played in Whose Line is It Anyway?, we the players have a conversation in which only questions are used. Questions must be answered with a question.

One sentence only. No cheating by using semicolons. No answering with the same sentence repeated. (And you don't necessarily have to answer the question straight up; you can answer the question, "Who do you think you are?" by replying, "Who do you think I am?")

I'll start us off.

Look, are you just toying with me, or what?

running coach 12-08-2012 11:42 PM

Why would you ask that?

etv78 12-08-2012 11:43 PM

Who wants to know?

ekedolphin 12-09-2012 01:19 AM

What's it to you?

penultima thule 12-09-2012 01:49 AM

Do you really want to know?

etv78 12-09-2012 01:51 AM

Would I ask if I didn't?

ekedolphin 12-09-2012 04:38 AM

Would you?

Kobal2 12-09-2012 09:18 AM

Can you think of a reason I wouldn't ?

ekedolphin 12-09-2012 10:29 PM

That would depend on your attitude, wouldn't it?

Ethilrist 12-09-2012 10:32 PM

Is there a problem with my attitude?

Ambivalid 12-09-2012 10:37 PM

What do you think?

etv78 12-10-2012 01:09 AM

Who has a problem with my attitude?

ekedolphin 12-10-2012 01:57 AM

Is it her?

Siam Sam 12-10-2012 02:22 AM

bot3 12-10-2012 06:46 AM

You know her?

IvoryTowerDenizen 12-10-2012 07:03 AM

campp 12-10-2012 08:25 AM

Is there anyone here who doesn't know her?

as_u_wish 12-10-2012 08:38 AM

Is that "know" as in biblically know?

Siam Sam 12-10-2012 09:05 AM

The fuck you say?

Sicks Ate 12-10-2012 09:08 AM

Why would I say 'the fuck'?

Siam Sam 12-10-2012 09:14 AM

You don't know?

Chronos 12-10-2012 09:47 AM

Don't you think you guys are being a bit confrontational?

Annie-Xmas 12-10-2012 09:50 AM

Do you think utilizing such ginormous words makes you look intellectual?

Sicks Ate 12-10-2012 09:50 AM

What are you, some kind of hippie?

Inner Stickler 12-10-2012 09:52 AM

Would a hippie be dressed this well?

Annie-Xmas 12-10-2012 09:56 AM

What color season are you?

Intergalactic Gladiator 12-10-2012 10:04 AM

Are you an autumn?

Inner Stickler 12-10-2012 10:15 AM

With this hair?

Vita Beata 12-10-2012 10:16 AM

What the Sam Hill now?

Annie-Xmas 12-10-2012 10:23 AM

Is Sam Hill related to Joe Hill?

Johnny Bravo 12-10-2012 12:40 PM

Can somebody please reiterate the rules of this game?

Is it that hard to understand, really?

Inner Stickler 12-10-2012 12:48 PM

Is anyone even keeping score?

Johnny Bravo 12-10-2012 12:56 PM

Wait, we're keeping SCORE!?

Labtrash 12-10-2012 12:59 PM

Who's winning?

campp 12-10-2012 01:21 PM

Wasn't Who on first?

Inner Stickler 12-10-2012 01:44 PM

Aren't Abbott and Costello routines a little tired at this point?

EMCEE_98 12-10-2012 02:04 PM

You call that an act?

Inner Stickler 12-10-2012 02:07 PM

What should I call it?

etv78 12-10-2012 03:11 PM

Does it really need a name?

bot3 12-11-2012 05:46 AM

by the way, what is your name?

Sicks Ate 12-11-2012 05:51 AM

Is anyone else glad this thread didn't die overnight?

42fish 12-11-2012 08:06 AM

Are we allowed to 'answer' questions with complete non sequitors?

Sicks Ate 12-11-2012 08:07 AM

Wouldn't that be a little bit like cheating?

Dendarii Dame 12-11-2012 08:11 AM

Is cheating always wrong?

Siam Sam 12-11-2012 10:17 AM

Does the Pope shit in the woods?

Gyrate 12-11-2012 10:59 AM

Isn't that unhygienic?

Inner Stickler 12-11-2012 11:12 AM

Are hygienic popes what people want?

Siam Sam 12-11-2012 11:29 AM

Do I look like someone who would want a hygienic pope?

Gyrate 12-11-2012 11:43 AM

What would such a person look like?
