We all know how to describe this guy, right? Let’s see, jolly, old, rosy cheeks, twinkling eyes. You get the picture. He’s one big descriptive cliché. But this December, I think we can fix that with a game of Pessimistic Moustache, a fun word game I made up to generate unique descriptions.
I did a quick search of public domain images of our friend Santa here and found some interesting variations to inspire us:
What if this Santa showed up at your window? How could you describe him? Using my list of “isms” I’m gonna go with:
The tap on my window startled me. I was surprised to look into the voyeuristic leer of Santa himself. His malistic brow revealed he was in the process of deciding if I was naughty or nice. I guess he had lost his list.
What about this guy:
He looks sneaky. I think he’s got a badger in that sack. Checking out my collections of isms, I’ll describe him to you:
The nihilistic jaunt of Santa’s cap and the punching and growling coming from the bag he fought to keep perched on his finalistic shoulders, led the children to believe that this Santa was being mind controlled by his panegoistic mustache, or maybe it was his beard.
As you can see, there are no wrong answers when playing Pessimistic Moustache. I hope you will join me this December creating fun, unique, perhaps ridiculous descriptions of Santa this holiday season.
What would you write for this one?
