I got the idea for this game from this TV show called "At Last the 1948 Show", from a skit titled "The Four Yorkshiremen". Basicly, four men sat around a table talking about how poor they used to be, and each tried to outdo the others. "In my day, we would never drink wine like this, we would be lucky if we had tea." "In my day, we were lucky to have tea with no sugar." "Or milk." "Or tea." "In my day we were lucky to have a cracked cup to drink from." "Cup? We had to drink from a rolled-up newspaper." "In my day, we were lucky to suck on a damp cloth." "Aye." ... and so on, and so on. Get the idea? Try to out-poor the person posting above you. And when it gets to the point where you can't get much more poor, then move on to a different subject, like how you and your 26 siblings all had to live in one room with half the floor caved in, countered with how a room was a luxury, you and your 107 siblings had to live in a corridor, and so on. Okay, let's start this game: "In my day, we were so poor we couldn't afford to go out to eat, and had to cook every single thing ourselves."
