    The Never Ending Story

    Pretty self-explanatory really…the story is continued with each person adding to it by one sentence.

    The sentence should be less than 35 words in case anyone is tempted to write the world’s longest run on sentence, sprinkled with commas, semi-colons and the such like.

    If you don’t like the direction the story is going, you can change it dramatically with a single sentence, though it must follow on from the previous person’s sentence.

    For example:

    Post one: My father and I were going to see a rugby match at Wembley Stadium.

    Post two: But then we remembered we both hated sport of any kind and went to the zoo instead.

    Post three: The zoo did not have any animals and was composed entirely of chocolate.

    Post four: Since we were lactose intolerant, we left without paying and went to an actual zoo which was conveniently next door.

    Once upon a time, there lived a colony of carpet samples, who were deeply concerned at the state of public schools.

    But when they went to investigate a public school (which was the first one they had ever been to in there life) I found they were actually fantastic and then they all enrolled there the next day.

    The carpet samples were enrolled in Miss Sheila Tubman's class, who was the world's leading expert on everything.

    Her desire to know everything had been sparked when she learned about the Swamp of Sadness, which provoked depression in man and horse alike, and slew any who succumbed to the feelings of woe.

    Miss Sheila Tubman and her class of children and carpet samples decided to market the Swamp of Sadness as a tourist attraction for the overseas market.

    But when they did, the people who visited they were so sad, they turned into Marsupial Moles.

    The Marsupial Moles decided to devise an enemies list, with the periodic table right at the top.

    The list also included Bananas, who attacked the Marsupial Moles using the world's largest tape measure.

    The world’s largest tape measure was in itself worthy of the list, after overloading everyone’s email account by sending them the life works of William Shakespeare.

    The tape measure could also shoot lazer beams, and each time it did, a cheeseburger blew up.

    Eventually there were no cheeseburgers left in the Northern Hemisphere, due to the tap measure's tendency to fire out laser beams every time it heard a song it didn't like.

    Because of this, both people and dingoes were protesting the existence of the tape measure by using rulers instead of tape measures.

    Their protest lasted only hours as they were genuinely scared of the metric system, which they abandoned in favour of measuring distances using Radiated tortoises.

    But because of poaching for using them as a form of measurement, anybody using a Radiated Tortoise got 9 years jail time, a $500 fine, and got turned into a Passenger Pigeon.

    The Passenger Pigeons were later released into the wild after the 9 years, but were unfortunately killed to extinction once again.

    Their extinction was much celebrated by the State of Nebraska, who had spent years trying to eradicate a large colony of Passenger Pigeons, which had been growing on the inside of a regulation sized pair of dice.

    The dice then started to grow a large colony of Carolina parakeets during their spare time lasting for 2 hours a day, every day.

    The dice then became wrapped in a game of Dungeons and Dragons, which was as tedious as it was time consuming and ultimately left the dice with little spare time to grow their parakeets.

    The dragons in the game later came to life after someone used a dragon-creating spell, and proceeded to destroy the dice.
