Bernie Plays a Game

- a pointless game that you play until someone decides to stop

Players stand in a circle.

Bernie (or whoever happens to want to) starts.

He says: Bernie played a game (if his name is Bernie)

Everyone: How did Bernie play the game?

Bernie: (twirling a pretend moustache) Bernie played a gamelike this, like this.

Everyone: (twirling their pretend moustaches) Bernie played a game like this, like this

Sally, who is standing next to Bernie, says: (twirling her pretend moustache) Sally played a game.

Everyone: (twirling their pretend moustaches) How did Sally play the game?

Sally: (twirling her pretend moustache while raising and lowering an eyebrow) Sally played a game like this, like this

Everyone: (twirling their respective pretend moustaches while raising and lowering their personal eyebrow) Sally played a game like this, like this.

George: (who is twirling his pretend moustache while raising and lowering an eyebrow) George played a game.

Everyone: (twirling their respective pretend moustaches while raising and lowering their personal eyebrow) How did George play the game?

George: (swinging his left foot back and forth while twirling his respective pretend moustache while raising and lowering his personal eyebrow) George played a game like this, like this.

And on and on, until someone basically runs out of loose body parts.

 

remember: once a motion is started, it must continue, more or less unchanged (less is better) until game is over

note: this very same game, originally called "Johnny Went To Sleep," is also known as: "Bernie Found Nirvana" "Bernie Called a Meeting" "Bernie Lightens Up" and "Bernie Went to Sleep"
