I like to liven up my day by playing little games that no one else knows I’m playing. George Bush Mouth and Space Invaders were inspired by boring meetings.
But a recent conversation with Grace inspired these few games brought to you by the Goddess of Stupid Crap on TV, The Oprah. Appropriate at the mall and at home, there are a million ways to play Oprahlympics.
Let’s do this.
1. GrOPRAH Shopping
You Need: 1. To have seen any episode of Oprah ever 2. A Grocery List
How To Play: Go grocery shopping. Every time you find an item on your list, you have to shout it out like Oprah shouts celebrity names.
It’s the only cool way to buy groceries these days.
2. Harpo Head-Snaps
You Need: A neckbrace
How to Play: At every possible moment, headsnap for emphasis. Oprah does this while nodding, while ‘understanding your feeble plight,’ and while announcing her FAVORITE THIIIIIINNNGGSSSSS!
You Need: Ninja Skills
How to Play: Allow no physical contact. Anytime anyone tries to initiate so much as a High-Five, give ’em the old Oprah Hug–the Ho-Prah. You must shake the hands, and shout, “GOOD FOR YOU!”
They use it in Australia:
And Oprah even gives the Ho-Prah to BaBa.
Any games you play when you’re bored?
Also, don’t forget about the Fashion Disaster Challenge, where bad decisions make you money!
