    Here we go. Greatest forum game ever played. It starts out as a situation, to which people take turns on good news or bad news, and why. (In the event of a double post, the earliest one is the one that counts) Here's an example, beginning with a starting situation.

    Charlie missed the bus today!

    The good news is he has a ride.

    The bad news is it's with his drunken father.

    The good news is he is sober this morning.

    The bad news is he also has palsy, and awful motor skills.

    The good news is that he got to school fine.

    You guys get it? So, here I'll start it all off, with good news.

    Dan got his Geddy Lee Jazz in the mail today!

    The bad news is that his feet are dirty and he has no way to clean them, since he is stuck in the middle of the Sahara, with only a camal as a friend.
     
  7. The good news is he's just been picked up by nomadic slave traders, who love the sound of foot tapping on a Geddy Lee Jazz as they dance round the fires at night; as a result they have inserted fresh juicy dates in between his toes so that he can use them to strike the strings.

    The good news is he keeps his medication on hand.
     
  10. The bad news is that the medication should not be taken with dates or, even Platonic relationships. :p

    The good news is that Charlie's raging hemmorhoids rule out any chance of making it in the dating scene that he might otherwise have.

    The bad news is a reminder is that he still is in the desert and the dating scene sucks...unless you like camels.

    The obvious good news is....

    he doesn't have a thing for camels...

    but after being stuck in the desert for so long, those slave traders are starting to look kinda purdy

    The bad news is that they are diabetic.
     
  19. The good news is that uncle JoJo is a modest, humble master research scientist who just happened to have discovered a cure for diabetes recently, but hasn't yet let the world in on his discovery. (whew, what a save! :D )

    Mike :D
     
  20. The bad news, of course, is that the cure is made from kittens.
