Fun Stuff - miscellaneous

Dec. 2012- I've created this page to add odd fun things, such as the "Santa Snatch" game below.

 July 2017 Update - apologies for missing images on this page; they have been stored in Photobucket who will now no longer display them unless I pay a monthly fee, which I cannot afford as I make no money from this site. I am hoping I will be able to find another way of storing and displaying the images if I can get them back from Photobucket. I have deleted some content on this page due to not having the images any more.

Santa Snatch game

A friend at work told me about this game, so I've adapted the Wikipedia "White Elephant" game, and I'm going to try it out with my family (It's a bit late to ask people to ring a gift for the game, so I'm supplying an assortment of odd $3-10 gifts that I've had in my 'gift box' or bought, making sure I've got at least one thing for each person plus a few spares...)

It's on a PDF that you can download if you like (click on the link):  

Santa Snatch

 

"Santa Snatch" was LOTS of fun- we had a ball. However if you have young children (or very reserved people) playing, you may want a less competitive version, so here's

                               Fun Quiz -  GIRAFFE TEST

This was sent to me in an email, and I thought it was so good, I'm putting it here: (and yes, I got ALL the questions WRONG....)

 

                         There are 4 questions. Don’t miss one.

 

 QUESTION 1.  How do you put a giraffe into a  refrigerator? 

 Think about it, and get your answer ready before you scroll down....

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The  correct answer is: Open the refrigerator, put in  the giraffe, and close the door. This question  tests whether you tend to do simple things in an  overly complicated  way.

 

 QUESTION 2  How do you put an elephant into a  refrigerator?



 Think about it....

 

 

 

 

 

Did  you say, Open the refrigerator, put in the  elephant, and close the  refrigerator?
 
Wrong  Answer.
 
Correct Answer: Open  the refrigerator, take out the giraffe, put in  the elephant and close the door. This tests your  ability to think through the repercussions of  your previous  actions..

 

 

QUESTION 3.  The Lion King is hosting an animal conference.  All the animals attend  .... Except one.  

    Which animal does not  attend?

 

 

 

 

 

Correct  Answer : The Elephant. The elephant is in the  refrigerator. You just put him in there.   This tests your memory.. Okay, even if you  did not answer the first three questions  correctly, you still have one more chance to  show your true  abilities.

 

QUESTION 4.  There is a river you must cross but it is used  by crocodiles, and You  do not have a boat. How do you manage  it?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Correct  Answer:You jump into the river and swim  across. Have you not been listening? All the  crocodiles are attending the Animal Meeting.  This tests whether you learn quickly from your  mistakes.



According to Anderson Consulting Worldwide, around 90%  of the  
Professionals  they tested got all questions wrong, but many  preschoolers got several correct answers. 

Anderson Consulting says this conclusively proves the theory that most professionals do  not have the brains of a  four-year-old.
