So in this game the first poster picks a tv character and rips them to shreds, but then the next poster has to find something legitimately nice to say about them in the next post, or vice versa.

An example :

First Poster : "Phoebe Halliwell is such a skank, can she ever keep her damn pants on?"

Next Poster : "But she does provide support for millions of San Franciscans daily through her column"

and then a new character is picked.

So the game would be finding nice things to say about horrible characters, and nasty things about likable characters.


Except in the TVRage version, you aren't limited by TV characters- you can do actors, political figures, celebrities, athletes, and anyone of significance. Try to pick people well known, and if not, mention so. If you chose a TV character, please indicate the show they are from, for ease of rebuttaling. (i.e. Jack from LOST is blah blah blah OR Snooki from Jersey Shore is...)

I'll start.

Statement: Paula Abdul (American Idol)

A washed up has-been with an apparent addiction to drugs and/or alcohol, who hasn't recorded an album in over a decade. She offers nothing in the way of constructive criticism, but rather spreads her chemical induced feely-goodness around to desperate wannabees




The next person would post:

Rebuttal: [Reasoning goes here]

And then they would post their own statement of someone else and then the topic would proceed like that, each statement being rebuttaled by the next poster with them posting their own statement, which in turn would be rebuttaled. Look in the link above for examples of how it's done. (my Paula one was stolen from page 24 )

Well at least Paula HAD a half-decent career once as opposed to Simon who's famous for simply being an asshole.

Mel Gibson:

The guy is an absolute nut-case who has a fetish for being tortured. Claims to be a God-fearing Christian, but then he goes an beats up his wife. He's a good actor of crazy characters, but then again, he doesn't even have to act, like I said, he's a nut-case.

Um, maybe it got stalled because nobody could find a nice thing to say about Mr. Gibson?

Or maybe Mel Gibson is just pulling a Joaquin Phoenix and he is really the best method actor of all time? Maybe he just wants us all to think he is crazy because that is part of his next big movie? Maybe it's us who are the nut jobs, because we don't understand him.

This girl claims to be an artist, but relys solely on autotune to assist her, yet she still comes off as a huge trainwreck. This girl needs to be in rehab, not on the stage of the Grammys. She had a couple of hits, but in a few years, nobody will remember her name.

Jennifer Love Hewitt was so pretty in that Hallmark movie last week.

But she will be remembered for something...as opposed to most of us.

Actually, Hitler's artwork is not bad.
There's nothing spectacular about it, just landscapes, buildings and some portraits, but for the supposed second anti-Christ, he had some good pieces.

Well, at least his solo career took off, which is more than you can say about his Wham! group mate. When was the last time you listened to an Andrew Ridgeley album?

Kim Kardashiann is a burden to society. She has used a sex tape and her relationship with fellow fame-w***e Paris Hilton to catapult her and her equally useless family to fame and now we must endure her even expanding presence on our lives.
