Today, we’re going to talk about a fun game you can play when if you’re bored. It’s called Exposition. Here’s how it works. You and a friend wait to encounter a mutual acquaintance, or for a famous person known to you both to come up in conversation. Identify him or her first by a role that he or she plays, and then by name. Whoever can offer the most crushingly obvious description wins. Examples:
“Look, Ted, it’s your wife, Janice Kerploski.”
“Did you see the speech on TV given by the president, George W. Bush?”
“I sometimes wish that the lead singer of the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Jimi Hendrix, hadn’t choked to death on his own vomit.”
Check out the worker drones in the background of this strip. Sally and Alice are so busy worrying about their new manager, Jefferson Jowdy, that they forgot that today is Wear-Only-White-Or-Black-Clothes-And-Shoes-And-Powder-All-Exposed-Flesh-A-Ghoulish-White Day. Those kids over in HR really know how to cut loose!
