If you've never played the game before, it is essentially a glorified version of 20 questions. Each player has a card that they wear in a headband on their forehead, so that they cannot see it, but the others can. Each question is a Who, What, or Where. You then ask the other players Yes or No questions to try to determine what's on your card. While we were playing this game, the fabulous dude gave me some sweet blog material that will help draw my 2009 blogging year to hilarious completion.
During one round last night, my brother had a Who card and the person he was trying to guess was "Picasso".
He had it narrowed down to being a painter, from Spain, who lived in the 1900s and whose first name was Pablo. Unfortunately, he was still stumped.
The fabulous dude thought he'd help a brother out.
"Think 16. Think 14, 15, 16. Think 14th, 15th, 16th. SIXTEENTH." He said.
The rest of us, Logi, Dave, and I, were clearly a bit confused about this clue.
Logi tried to figure it out and said, "I think he means think about the 16th letter of the alphabet." (Because, you know, P is the sixteenth letter and Picasso starts with a P).
At this point, the fabulous dude said, "No. That's not what I mean. I mean, think about the SIXTEENTH CHAPEL".
Needless to say, we all burst into uncontrollable laughter. Pop nearly squirted out my nose.
The fabulous dude didn't understand why we were laughing at first but then thought he figured it out.
"Oh yeah, I must be confused. It wasn't Picasso who painted the SIXTEENTH CHAPEL, it was Michelangelo, right?"
I put him out of his misery by explaining that we were not laughing hysterically at him because he had the painter confused but because he was calling the SISTINE chapel the SIXTEENTH CHAPEL.
Too bad Picasso only made it so far as completing the Fifteenth Chapel.
Reason #56824 that I love this crazy fabulous dude - he always gives me a reason to laugh - sometimes with him, and sometimes at him.
