  1. This game was born this weekend over brunch with Fozzy, CakeorDeath, and me so it holds a special place in my heart. I hate that Twitter loses hash tag games after a week or so. Thus, I will continue to curate until someone takes away my author privileges on MOBFD. Also, holy shit are some of these funny! Good job, team.

    Ed's Note: For context - Youppi was the name of the Montreal Expos mascot. Canadians are adorable, you guys.

  2. I love all these, I wish I had time to photoshop all of them.

  3. Sorry, team. I sometimes forget y'all aren't Canadian. :)

  4. You're all wrong, baseball was invented from a dare made by my ex-girlfriend.

  5. These are great. Wish I had been a part of this game -- hilarious!
