Using a word generator would be alot better than posting a list of words that people would have to choose from.


EDIT: Here is the word generator site mike linked to for that old challenge. It was actually a random paring machine that combined nouns' and adjectives'. LINK


Jay, check this out and let us know what you think.

Yeah, that works too. People will be able to click through until they get a pair they like, but that'll just help lend more appeal to the comp I guess.

"Um, this isn't Mars. This is Earth."
"Earth? Earth-with-nuclear-weapons Earth?"
"Yes."

"clinical flower" I got... yep I think I could work with that... user added image

Edit: I actually clicked twice... just cause the first two words I didn't understand. Actually I think one was sake, but I wasn't sure if it was the Japanese drink or "for goodness sake!" ? user added image It's a secret though.

lol... yeah, it comes up with some odd combos, but some awesome ones too... 'rotten machinery' ... I could work that... if we we're allowed ZB in this comp.... :hug:

But to be honest I'd love to give the original two words a run. "fence/Armchair"

the random word thing is a great idea, I might actually partake in a challenge set up like that. Even if you can click through to two words you like it'll help make people join in and finish the contest.

I knew you folks would like this kind of theme. It worked back then and it still works today. Your imagination is the limit.

Now the credit goes to tweetytunes for the random word theme. I'm only pushing it to make it happen.

Hope Jay is game for this.user added image

I don't know either. I tried finding the source but couldn't.
I just stumbled upon it awhile ago with no mention of the source.

Not my idea really - it was Mikes - I can`t take the credit for this. I just brought it up again.

Here`s hoping I don`t get "fence/Armchair" again hehe
