Wordplay Thursday #7


Here’s a writing prompt for you.  It’s a simple fill-in-the-blank.  You can use one word or several.  Feel free to get as crazy, genre-appropriate, or as imaginative as you want.  The point is to get the creative juices flowing.  And it’s a good thing to dig deeper, so don’t stop at the first idea that hits you.  Try coming up with at least five things.

“That’s as rare as _____________________.”

I’ll give you one example to get you started:

“That’s as rare as a cantaloupe cobbler.”

I’d love to hear what you come up with, so please share in the comments.  Oh, and please keep your posts below an R-rating.  It’s a family show, after all!


Thanks to Patrick Beck, Topaz, Michael August, Terry Smith, Andrew Clayton, Jackie Cook, Doug Folkins, and Mark for their great additions to Wordplay Thursday #6 (read it here)!  Great job!
