cryptic bands
« on: April 02, 2005, 08:49:18 PM »
heres a game i used to play when i was at work ( better than working  :) )
you make up a cryptic clue to name a band or musician and for an extra clue you tell them the decade in which they were famous heres a couple of examples
skinny letter/ 1970s === boney m  geddit ,   musical insects / 1960s == the beatles
 here is the first one
christmas plants /1960s and 1970s
its a far better thing i do than i have ever done

But never fear, gentlemen; castration was really not the point of feminism, and we women are too busy eviscerating one another to take you on.
