Everyday, we are given a set of 3 random words to form into a short composition (min. one sentence, max. five).
The first three people to post for the day, get to select the word set (one random word per poster).
The next poster says, "Unicorns & gremlins live on Wall Street." or something to that extent. Ridiculous sentences and word play highly encouraged! All types welcome to play. May the craftiest poster win. :wink:
Anyone want to select the words for today? (We'll change words every 24 hrs, ~9pm Universal Time)
A Salmonella outbreak in the Soviet Union caused the meat industry to scramble and seek alternative protein sources in time for the next shuttle launch. Astronauts were surprised to find stores of dehydrated pony bacon packed in the spaceship's food reserves.
No one will ever forget the Great Vacuum Heist that occurred in Beijing in the midst of a vacuum shortage during the 1983 Dust Mite Invasion, which was caused by humans shedding skin cells at unusually high rates due to increased UV radiation from the hole in the ozone layer. Twenty shipments of vacuum cleaners were stolen simultaneously and sold on the black market during the following months until a public service announcement about sunscreen was released.
Due to an unfortunate translation error in their English language marketing materials "Heist Vacuum Co." posted extremely poor first quarter earnings after entering the U.S. market--until executives in Beijing realized the viral marketing properties of the mistranslation, paid a young film student from Fudan University 1,000 yuan to create a set of faux commercials for an imaginary advertising campaign and posted the videos to YouTube. Thereafter, executives chose to change the direction of the company by marketing a variety of clothing and cheaply priced consumer products branded with the "Heist" logo to young, educated urban consumers in the US and Europe. After factory shut-down, working capital for this change of direction was acquired via the sale, at an extreme mark-up, of the remaining vacuums to captive markets in Africa.
Two weeks ago, in one of Beijing's museums, a heist involving Catwoman, Aquaman, and the Thing took place. Over fifteen million dollars worth of artifacts went missing, the latter of which came from a golden vacuum once belonging to Zedong Mao. The motive for the trio's actions are unknown, but some commentators suspect that twenty ounces of Kryptonium were hidden in the shaft for easy transport from Japan.
