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?
