Pocket Ninja: You know, subby, I don't know if you were aiming for it, but that's actually a very biting analogy. I mean, think about it. Duck Duck Goose is a game of intense strategy and competition, a survivalist simulation in which one individual, the "goose," must carefully select his opponent, tag him as "it," and then flee without being tagged himself. If he succeeds, his opponent is vanquished and becomes himself the goose. If he loses, his goosedom continues. And that is the essence of the game, its core. Can the goose become a duck? And now, here, we have Obama, the goose. TAG, he yells at his hand-picked opponent, and he scampers away, and his opponent springs to his feet and chases him and gets closer and closer and...SAFE. Obama slides into the empty spot. But then, as the rest of the circle glares at him with stony eyes, Obama realizes that it doesn't matter what he's done. It doesn't matter that he's won. He looks up with sad eyes at his opponent -- the opponent that he's so meaningless vanquished -- and shuffles to his feet. His opponent sits back down. And Obama begins again -- duck, duck, duck.... But this time, when he tags his replacement goose, the goose only looks up at him and shakes his head. "I don't feel like running right now," he says. And Obama's shoulders hunch. Again he circles. Duck. Duck. Duck. But what point would there ever be in saying goose again? No point, none at all. And slowly it begins to dawn on him, how his presidency looks to the world. It makes me sad.
Aristocles: Is Pocket Ninja the Farklib king? Why are all the Farklibs swinging from his nuts?
Felgraf: See, the thing is, I think Obama would/does likely find this amusing. He seems to be capable of actual self-deprecating humor, and is able to be, well, goofy when necessary. (Like him playing with that kid in the spiderman costume).I think Romney would be FURIOUS if someone did this to him.
Bashar and Asma's Infinite Playlist: Aristocles: Is Pocket Ninja the Farklib king? Why are all the Farklibs swinging from his nuts?I tend to just skip over them. They feel forced.
tenpoundsofcheese: Those aren't bunny earsLooks like subby doesn't understand that uconn tradition.
