yo ho ho
(and a few other connecting words)
The one thing I did want to mention is that the pieces do not tear cleanly. If you've never opened a new box of magnetic poetry, most of the words are come in "chunks" of multiple words on a magnetic sheet which has been scored and which you need to tear apart before use. Usually, they're scored deeply enough that this is an easy process that leaves no trace. In my set (YMMV) they tore rather messily and left jagged edges around most of the words. It's certainly no dealbreaker and you might even say it lends a certain appropriate character to the zombie-themed words.
Note: Combine this set with Magnetic Poetry Erotic X Kit. 3182 for especially hilarious results!
First, it's not very geeky. At all. It has NO OS related terms (unix, linux etc) and only one programming related term (perl) but that's it. Oh wait, we have "bridge". Wowee!
Second, it doesn't integrate with my existing (original) magnetic poetry kit because the words are large, much larger than the originals and because it has so few words (not a good value, see #3), there's not much to be done with it. Iow, don't do like I did and have the expectation that you can beef up your existing kit by throwing in some geekness. It ain't happening. I'd gauge the font size to be about 12. The original is maybe 6 pt. font so it doesn't blend, kwim?
Third, it's not a good value. Hardly any words as compared to the original magnetic poetry kit. Maybe one third as many. Seriously.
I'm not a complainer but I'm very disappointed with this purchase. It's what you'd expect someone like Scott Adams to do [juxtaposition of geek cartoonist but zero actual web culture knowledge, his site is painful; he calls each blog entry "a blog".] It's enough to make any sane person shiver all over.
I'm left with the impression that this kit was just phoned in, no thought put in to it at all. My mom who is 80 and had never sent an email in her life could have done a better job.
The words are sufficiently offensive to warrant the d-bag title and to hide them from my mother in law. Some gems include "homie," "hottie" and "wingman" They are not entirely conducive to making poems though. There are not very many verbs, although its verbification is a very d-bagish thing to do. You can definatly make some pretty obnoxious phrases and sentences.
It's cute though. I like it. It's kind of like Cards Against Humanity for the refrigerator. I may try some of the additional sets to mix things up a bit.
