You have this special set of fridge magnets with words on which you and some friends smear all around on the fridge without looking, and then push them together like tiles. You then read what it says about, for instance "ARE DEAD BANANAS UPCOMING WIERD SATURDAY AVOID" which would have me steering clear of yellow fruit on the weekend, I can tell you.

It all depends on the words obviously. You don't want too many bummer words in there or you'll be hiding behind the couch all year.

Thankyou Calum, that's a good idea. Or what about thinking up recipes this way. "whats chow tonite?" "Looks like it involves mushrooms fish and bananas boys." "Bananas! Yay!" You should take out the sex and death words first though.

Sorry, I'm too busy communing with this snail.

Ha, I like it! My friend had a halloween set of magnetic poetry. We played a game with it where the aim was to leave messages that were as pornographic as possible. Ah, those were the days <sigh>.

Ouija messages on the fridge strike me as quite funny. Thanks for giving me an excuse for investing in one of those poetry sets.

not sure what category this should be in - suggestion, culture: collaborative writing.

Here in Canada you can buy a box of magnetic words for your fridge which comprise all of the words found in Shakespeare plays, (for the life of me I can't remember the name of the product). The phrases left after a house party are worth the cost, and are often quite prophetic.

How about "One A Day" Shakespeare Multi-verse?

Sorry mate, It was meant to joggle the man's memory for the name of his box o' words.

this idea sucks. Me and my friends tried it last night and it kept talking about milk and in the morning all the beer was gone.

An infinite number of monkeys on an infinite number of ouija fridges ...

I think the monkeys would run out of beer before then.

This reminds me of the Tarot Fridge, which foretells the future based on items withdrawn. The Tower Inverted is especially inauspicious here, since it is represented by a carton of milk.

I worry that the Ouija Fridge would not channel wandering spirits, but rather the entities populating the fridge, like the giblet or the Schlitz. Now that I mention it, I would not mind hearing what the Schlitz has to say.
