Words With Friends continues to “hand-pick” one person a day that it wants me to play with.
I’m starting to notice some recurring themes.
First of all, you’ve got:
- Theme #1: Very Dangerous Children
Roseyb3′s 3-year-old is apparently allowed to pilot a boat, and the dad sees no issue with this situation.
I don’t care if her pre-k has a NASBLA-approved certification course – I, for one, wouldn’t trust her maritime judgements.
As cute as the scene is, Jake’s toddler, uh… worries me.
See that look on his face?
That’s the face of a kid who finds just a little too much joy in the all-consuming wrath of fire.
I can only imagine what he’s envisioning doing to his teething toys now.
Maybe he’ll team up with…
…Rob’s kid, who already has his action movie sunglasses ready.
If they don’t form a buddy-cop duo as a grizzled by-the-book preschooler and a pyromaniac toddler, I’ll be very disappointed.
Of course, you also have:
- Theme #2: The Real Names of Classic Characters
For instance, Google says this character’s name is The Great Gazoo, but as his Words WIth Friends account clearly shows…
…it was actually just “Gary” all along.
And you prolly thought Mighty Mouse’s name was Mighty Mouse, didn’t you?
Wrong. It’s Bob. Bob Mighty Mouse.
…also, there’s a sentient mustache named “Kwaffens.”
Learn something new every day.
The most-common theme by far, though, is:
- Theme #3: Whose Photo Is It Anyway
Which is Kaylah, here? They’re both equally out-of-frame… your guess is as good as mine.
One of these shadow people is cathy.
Who? No clue.
Maybe it’s actually the sunset that’s named Cathy.
Which of the pairs is Becky? Carol? Bob? Hmmmm?
…well, ok, we can make some good guesses, but still.
This last one’s a double since any of them might be Mark, and it appears at least one of them is young enough to count as Very Dangerous Children, too.
“Come on, kids! Suppertime!” “Aww, gee, ma, can’t we have just 5 more minutes on our Inexplicable Oversized Climbing Frame?”
Some people, though, are simpler to understand.
They’re just from different dimensions.
Abbey, evidentially, comes from an alternate dimension where everything is rotated 140° to the left.
SuzanneC19 hails from dimension C19, where everyone is a letter floating in the ethereal void of yellow.
Not half as cool as dimension C-137, lemme tell ya.
Crissyteach, meanwhile, is from the dimension where everyone is a tree.
What more can you say?
