    Default The Pokemon/pharmaceutical/ancient historian forum game!

    Okay, so this is intended to be a silly Hangout thread.

    The rules are simple. First, look at the username of the poster above you. Then, decide whether that username sounds like 1) the name of a Pokemon, 2) the name of a pharmaceutical product, or 3) the name of an ancient historian. You can only pick one. SO THINK CAREFULLY. And that's it. A simple game, but hopefully fun times will be had by all.

    If the person above you is someone you've already categorized, you're allowed to randomly pick out another name from our Member List here: http://www.epforums.org/memberlist.php You could also go the main forum page, scroll down to Currently Active Users and pick out a name from there: http://www.epforums.org/forum.php

    The idea for the thread was shamelessly stolen from the Day9 Dailies, which you might or might not be familiar with. It doesn't matter at all, though. This works fine as a forum game without the need to explain any of the backstory.

    So yeah, go. Do me first. I mean, not like that. I like you and you have pretty eyes but I'm not emotionally ready for it just yet.

    Oh the plans I have for you

    Gare.
    Sounds like some lost historian who was constantly one upped by Plato and then Aristotle.
    Well atleast you're now immortalized forever

    Thank you to whoever moved the thread.

    I knew you'd categorize me as a historian.

    I'll just ignore the fact that your username is an actual character and go with... Pokemon. Sheik would be a terrible name for a pharmaceutical, although I was tempted to say ancient historian at first.

    Gare rhymes with Nair, a hair removal product.

    Jazzmarazz would be one of those revolutionary anti-aging formulas that comes under the fire of outrageous lawsuits five years later.

    Andy.... mostly sounds like a new brand of Birth Control pills that stops her period and let's her pee standing up.

    Seems like I've seen Sheik at the local pharmacy. A brand of prophylactic, if I remember correctly.


    Be afraid. Be very afraid.

    Skullpoker sounds like a banned pokemon. Or a memory restoring drug. "Do you forget things, try Skullpoker to refresh your memory."

    Iamerror.
    Bad programming from the GBC Pokemon games, resulted in missingno glitch/fight

    Wayne Jakobus Michael Worthington III is obviously the name of a famous and kinda crazy historian. I'm not familiar with his work, so it's all I can comment

    "Worthington III?!"
    Well, "kinda" is an understatement.

    Wayne Jakobus Michael sounds like a famous historical guy who got famous for being related to a rich guy... or someone who won a billion dollars from the lottery
