Matt Whistler’s Facebook sentence game
The sentence game has been like taking every psyche and placing it into a quick fire tumble dryer in full vibrational throttle. To think of a response that hopefully resonates with the other cyber observers and then type it out and beat other crazies with more wit, charm, smut, filth and randomosities, is the ultimate challenge of my game.

(Emma Burton) Embarrassed she quickly picked it up only to press the on button and it vibrated all the way up to her (Dan Robinson) rabbit hole, she quickly chased after it (Emma Burton) and found herself in a quantum universe so she (Tim Burchell) licked her fingers, straightened her hair and shot up to Papillon De Nuit switch gear and propulsed herself into (Chris Tudball) claim her bingo winnings… Bingo! (Tim Burchell) She had won. However, the doors blew open and blew a gust of wind up her skirt. It was clear to see, that in fact, she had two and they were growing in size.
