New game: The Time Traveller's Persistent Cough
« on: January 03, 2021, 03:03:21 PM »
In the past, we have had a lot of fun with book and film titles. But how would they be re-imaged for the COVID generation?

The Time Traveller's Persistent Cough

On his return from the future, the time traveller complains about the blandness of his wife's cooking.

Fifty Shades of Brown

Well, what the hell did you expect to find in her knickers during a toilet roll shortage?! And don't be tempted to take off her bra. The beauticians have been shut for twelve weeks and her nipples are hairier than a hipster's chin.

The Mask Tricks


Some people can, amazingly, leave their masks on correctly for long periods of time. Sometimes lasting even an entire shopping spree. They are probably on a red pill. Maybe a blue one. Who knows.
