The Tag Game

Posted 2009.07.21 14.45 in Computers/Internet/Technology, Pointless Blather by Stephanie

It just crossed my mind that sometimes you can form sentences out of the tags under blog posts. Ok, maybe my mind wanders a lot, but at least it gets out now and then. Anyhow, here’s the rules of the game:

  • You must use all the tag words in a given post, words may not be duplicated.
  • You must form a grammatically correct sentence, or a plausible newspaper-style headline sentence.
  • You may add your own punctuation.
  • Optionally, you may chose to allow pluralization / depluralization of available words.
  • One point is awarded for the first sentence you can come up with from a given blog post’s tags. Two points if you can make a second unique sentence. Three points for the third sentence, and so on.
  • There is no time limit, no competition, and no way to win – you can lose however, but only if you don’t play.

Here are some examples, using the tags from some recent posts:

Tags: early, insomnia, morning, sucks.

This is a very easy one, it becomes “Early morning insomnia sucks.

Tags: army, battle, fish, rebellion, snail.

This one makes a good newspaper headline: “Fish army battle snail rebellion!

There you go!  Now you try – but not with this blog post, the tags suck.
