Positive and Negatives Game.
In this game involving proverbs,sayings, and lyrics the first poster makes either a positive or negative assertion (neutral) and the responder comes up with the opposite.A new statement is then made with the same sequence being followed.

For example (1) 'Many hands make light work'
Response 'Too many cooks spoil the broth'.

The response can involve opposite meaning or completely opposite wording as in the lyrics example.

There are many proverbs directing opposite ideas.


As for lyrics......taken from Johnny Farnham's Sady the Cleaning Lady

"Scrub your floors do your chores dear old Sady"
becomes
"Trash the ceiling,laze around, rotten young Mavis...

Names, colours etc don't have exact opposites so other alternatives can be used.

TRy it you'll like it........or.......leave it you'll hate it! Cool
