(Backhanded) Compliments Game

Postby Tigger_the_Wing on Thu Oct 08, 2009 4:42 pm

Given the popularity of the Insults Game I thought that the considerable brain-power of our members could be used to even greater effect in a Compliments Game with a subtle twist. :wink:

As an example, I'll quote a 'compliment' I just received at another forum. I'm quite sure it was meant sincerely, but I could have taken offense at the wording.

Keep on posting and use our advice well. Especially Tigger_the_Wing's. She reminds me of the proverbial ancient wise woman from the past who gives the hero the advice he needs to succeed in the story.


Ancient? Moi?! :bummer:

I suggest the game be played as follows:

Each poster compliments the poster above and includes something slightly less than wholly complimentary. :evilgrin: If the poster uses a backhanded compliment that was once paid to them it would make the game more interesting if a little of that history could be posted too.

I throw myself at the tender mercy of the next poster… :paranoid:

Nice job keeping the thread going, TS. I was a little doubtful you'd understand the game but you pulled through!

Nice to see you back around here Rain. You were gone so long that we almost started to miss you.

Edd, that was a nice compliment, even though insulting PantyGnawer is much like pointing and laughing at kids with Down Syndrome.

Rain, you're lacking mechanical ability only makes you able to relate to women better.

PantyGnawer, your level of classiness is wonderfully illustrated by your name.

Rain, I didn't think anyone would be able to make that poor level of joke (Bart and Roy excepted) but you managed it.

Daft, you do an exceptional job of keeping the doctors of Britain busy.
"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

PK, you are of a healthy weight. Apparently women like it that way.

Bart, for sure you are a fine ambassador of the Welsh people. It is due to your success that Welsh people are so highly respected worldwide.

That's very kind of you matey, I'm glad all my efforts have not been in vain.

Indeed may I return the compliment by saying that your championing of the Australian indigenous peoples has made us all grow to love your didgeridoo playing.
