The ^ > v game

Post by ratammer »

I played this on forums before but I can't remember if xkcd had it. Basically, you post something about the person above you, yourself, and the person below you, marking them with ^, >, and v respectively. (You can also use emoji or other appropriate symbols if you want, but I'm sticking to tradition.) The statements don't have to relate to each other but it's nice if a conversation of some sort gets going.

e.g.
^ sounds like they need to eat some food

> needs to go and buy some food

v has some food I can have?
^ lives too far away for me to give them any food

...etc.
So I'll start:

^ does not exist

> is a stinky rat

v is probably less stinky

^ is "wearing" her natural fur, thus not actually nude

> also has fur

v probably either has fur or is wearing clothes

^ was quite likely to be correct no matter who posted next

v is posting in this thread for the first time

^ probably didn't know that I was on holiday last week, and so probably nothing I did last Tuesday could be considered productive, unless I'm destined to spend my life catching up on all the movies on my list

> will likely spend tomorrow playing games and eating Indian food

v likes spicy food

^ may like to see an ox tongue sandwich I ate once:
