Humorist George S. Kaufman was a bright fellow. A founding member of the Algonquin Round Table (that club which included such literary luminaries as Dorothy Parker and H.L. Mencken), Kaufman was known for his keen wit and prodigious mental capabilities.
The game below was an invention and favorite pastime of Kaufman's. He called it "Stinkety Pinkety" and it's a good one to try the next time you're on a long car trip with kids.
In Stinkety Pinkety, the first player offers a definition while the other player or players must translate it into a noun modified by a rhyming adjective.
The elementary examples are called Stink Pinks and require just one syllable answers.
An obese piece of head gear is a fat hat.
An unmelodious group of singers is a dire choir.
