- Every Weekday (M-F)
OneUpMe.com is a community of creative thinkers who come together every day to play wordplay games. Every weekday, new topics are posted in a variety of games and players attempt to "one-up" each other in the cleverness of their responses. To get to know the site a bit more, check out the Archive to see some of the past games. Then check out the Forum to see the latest conversations.
Some topics just bring out the best in everyone. Thanks for the laughs. Good "Trending Topics", John Flood.
There are so many possibilities for TTs today without resorting to hybrids. I'm kind of disappointed.
It's interesting to see how the hybrid RA/TT yesterday played out yesterday. There was no real consensus on how to go about it.
I think I forgot I played TT yesterday and I never voted it. I'll take the wet noodle award.
Is it a cool "..." prompt for Monday or glitch in post? I vote glitch. I'm not trying to be sarcastic. I'm trying to be funny. How's that working for me?
I still think Dammit deserved more votes.
Sorry guys I guess I entered the subject and prompt too late last night
TT is a good place to find some good laughs today. So many good ones!
What was this supposed to be? Walking actually is illegal in basketball. My post isn't any good, but what were you guys looking for when voting?
I really loved the Friday 3/22 Trending Topics game: both the starter and responses. I laughed at (with?) SO many of them! They were Real Time/Daily Show/Colbert-worthy. Topical, hilarious...and some of them had a real edge :-)
Reasons to get rid of your car ...
"Can't you tell that it's out of style?" got ZERO votes!?
Not a single Billy Joel fan out there in OUMland?
Watch music videos, concerts, and interviews from artists in every genre, from hip-hop and rock to indie and electro. Live performances, news and exclusives.
Lesser known awards shows: The actor most difficult to understand.
Should we be thinking shows, or categories?
Thanks for the TT laughs today!!! (:
I am so disappointed in my TT performance yesterday. When is enough enough? When the kid with the stutter says enough. Was it too much of a thinker or was it just not good?
This is the TT I know and love!! I'm so excited to play today.
This is not a complaint but I am new to TT and I am confused by the prompt and starter for tomorrow. Isn't this another Hybrid? What are the guidelines for playing here?
Dead Post for "I didn't know they made a Hallmark Card for that"; Happy Belated Yesterday. I thought I was hilarious but just couldn't bring myself to post it.
Thanks to William Bilyeu for this Friday's Trending Topics which made me laugh out loud and which is also the final topic I will be posting as host of TT. It's been great fun everyone!! Thanks for all the laughs!
JOHN FLOOD will be taking over starting Monday. Please join me in welcoming him. Thanks for stepping up, John!
Of course, the joke is that the Pope's not actually resigning - he's just giving it up for Lent (thanks to Twitter for that one).
I hope Monday's topic is all-male rock bands
*Top 20 Sexiest Male Musicians of All Time: The Complete List *Top 20 Worst Bands of All Time: The Complete...
Wednesday's Trending Topics is brought to you by Jack Picone and this:
A chance inspiration involving metal particles and the tip of a pencil led Mr. Cassagnes to develop Etch A Sketch in the late 1950s.
Thanks to Kimberly Wren for inspiring this Friday's Trending Topics!
Being the parent of a teen, I have to say you've all pretty much hit the nail on the head today. Well done, peeps. (Oh my god, I can't believe you said peeps!)
I love every single one of these responses today. What a crowd. Yuck, yuck
Monday's Trending Topics is inspired by the NFL Super Bowl game which, I now realize, is not today. It is next week. My bad. ;)
The cache is depleting and I am desperate for some player-submitted topics to use for Friday's Trending Topics. Please submit your ideas to me via OUM private message with a topic and an example.
Reminds me of "The Family Feud"!
The inspiration for tomorrow's Trending Topics
The dread Somali pirate Mohamed Abdi Hassan called a press conference Thursday to announce his retirement. He picked a good time to get out of the game: piracy is way, way down.
OMG....I could relate to almost every TT today. Thank you, all, for helping me see how truly pathetic I really am :)
The inspiration for tomorrow's Trending Topics:
Fans can vote in Hasbro's campaign for the shape they want to keep and for a replacement.
This is a hilariously apropos topic today because my girlfriend is the stage manager for a play opening tonight: "Attack of the Space Nymphos from Uranus," at the Hole in the Wall Theater in New Britain, CT.
Blasted! Forgot to post this morning....
