20 Chickens In A Big Fun Bag

A friend reminded me of a post I added to the Youth Specialties games forum years ago.

You see, I was looking for a game for our Wednesday night gathering. I came across a game where you get 5 to 10 diapers and chew up or melt 5 to 10 candy bars and place them in the diapers. The students get a game sheet and try guessing the candy bar type (Snickers, MilkyWay, Kit Kat, etc). This sounded pretty fun and pretty funny. However, I continued reading the comments posted about this game and they were ridiculous! Youth pastors across the world were bashing this game saying it did not honor God and that to have a game representing poop was taking our kids down a path that they did not need to go in a church.

This aggrevated me. I mean, come on. If you don't like the game, don't play it with your students. If there is a link to an inappropriate web site or "ad spam", make a comment and get it off, but this was a legitimate game. In my aggrevation, I decided to write a post about a game that I just made up to see if it would be met with the same opposition. All I can say is that some Christians get fired up way too easily...however, I laugh every time I read these posts.
