The object of this game is for each poster to replace one word in the following sentence with a synonym and watch as the meaning of sentence morphs. verbs can be turned into nouns or vice versa and hyphenated words are also fair game (and the hyphenated words are individually thereafter fair game to change). So here's the starting sentence:


Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth, upon this continent, a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

and I'll substitute the first synonym:

Four score and seven years ago our daddies brought forth, upon this continent, a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
