Last night, Aaron, Hannah and I went to dine and celebrate a birthday with some friends. Last time Telestrations was brought out, I was attempting to sleep, and everyone else was totally drunk and loud. Result: Me yelling at them to shut up. So this time, we pulled out Telestrations before I went to bed.
What is Telestrations you ask? It’s kind of like telephone/chinese whispers, combined with pictionary. The first person starts with a word, the next person draws it, the next person looks at the drawing (but not the word) and has to write what it is, the next person draws, and so forth. Write, draw, write draw. There is some system of points or something, but we never play with points, we play for hilarity’s sake.
Last time I played the game, someone started with Yoga, which somehow went to arsehole, via aboriginal. Unfortunately I don’t have any photos of that, but we were all laughing so much it’s surprising no one wet themselves.
Here’s a peak at last nights game (sorry about the poor quality of the photos, but all I had was a little pocket digital camera in my bag, and I had to take the photos really really quickly in between rounds so everyone didn’t have to wait on me to keep playing).
It started innocent enough:
I think this is where it started going a bit awry:
And this is where things really started getting interesting (this was my drawing by the way…):
I bet if we were playing with a different crowd, it wouldn’t have come to this:
That is one giant birdy!:
And finally, microscope turned into this:
And then we had this round:
Clearly the person who drew this one has never actually had an ultrasound, but good effort none the less:
I’m not sure who actually gets a tattoo in the middle of their stomach:
I’m sorry to say, this was my drawing. I tried to draw someone getting a tattoo in the arm first, but it didn’t turn out at all, so I erased it and started again. Each round of this game is timed by one of those sand turn-it-upside-down type timers that last about 30 seconds to 1 minute, so it didn’t pan out too well:
And then things started to go pear-shaped:
And that is how Ultrasound turned into Shot in the Nuts:
Don’t forget to vote once per day (THANKS!)
