They Goofed

[Post New]by Althena533 on Jun 21, 14 3:14 AM
For 25 years, you’ve thought you were an orphan. But one stormy night, a mysterious man steps out of a mirror in your home and claims to be your uncle

An orphan is somebode who has lost their parents. Not somebody with no family whatsoever.

25 years... Why is it ALWAYS 25 years?

Can't the devs come up with something new for a change? 24 years? 20 years? 28 years? Anything but 25!

But she only thought she was an orphan. She believed she had lost her parents, was unaware of her uncle and had been living in an orphanage. I don't think it is really a 'goof'.

Agree with the 25 years though.

If someone has no family whatsoever, wouldn't that make the parents dead. If you were 5-years old and your family suddenly disappeared, wouldn't you think that now you are an orphan? There is no family whatsoever. You had to have been created by someone. Not unless they can create babies in a laboratory, then I missed something. Then again, James Patterson's Maximum Ride and her flock were created in a laboratory. Maybe I too came from a laboratory. Then that would explain the expiration date printed on me. Gotta go. 2 days before the date.

Oooo! There is another one were you had an expiration date of 30 when the little jewel in your palm turned red I think they recycled you. It was called Logan's Run. Of course that was an eon ago so many won't remember it.

Now dlcoyte I have told you to not tell people that you been looking at my bottom It was supposed to be our secret...

And I don't know steve_san... a man with an owl on his shoulder is quite the normal in this household

No you are right my response to a man with an owl saying he's my new Uncle would have me running out the room, especially if he started singing "I'm Jake the Peg"... What??? to soon to be making jokes

Off to do a Sea of... Starting with the first one... I don't think I speak in the first one do I??? With that accent probably just as well... (Says the girl with a very bad Aussie accent... Yes I say G'Day and Coooeee Cobber) Sigh

She's still an orphan. That's the goof. If her father had come out of the mirror, things would have been different.

No, cos her uncle tells her her parents are alive. So she believed herself to be an orphan but now discovers she is not.

Even if the Uncle came out of the mirror wearing a Miranda Carmen headdress and outfit, singing I Like You Very Much whilst sporting an owl on either shoulder I'd have welcomed him with open fins if he'd told me my parents are still alive.

Lucky, lucky orphan!

BTW: No need to feel sorry. It's bittersweet now, but I'm trying for a little humour in the threads for this game. If that's Ok?

SPOILER: She saves her parents and becomes a guardian with her own owl. Happy ever after or what?

Losing one parent is a tragedy. Losing both is just carelessness. LOL - Oscar Wilde

Oooooh Tiger!
I would love to see the Uncle come out in a Carmen Miranda outfit and singing Rio....or I like you very much or the Chiquita Banana Song chi chi boom!
Or dressed like Indiana Jones, carrying a gold idol, brandishing his whip and saying "Your Parents are alive, but you have to face death and adventure to keep them that way! Let's go Baby!"

You are just too funny woman! I have so many funny ideas rolling though my head now.....thanks!

LOL, Tookat. I'm sorry if I've given you some kind of earworm.

I was thinking of ever more ridiculous ways Uncle could appear and that scenario just popped into my head.

I love the Uncle imagery! Perhaps we need more humour of the absurd to lighten people's day.

My contribution is Inigo Montoya (Mandy Patinkin, The Princess Bride) coming through the mirror - "Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die. "
