Spoons is a card game played with a standard deck and enough actual spoons for the number of players-1. The spoons are set in the middle of a table and the players sit around them. (The game is usually played with at least two decks) A dealer deals each player four cards. The person to the left of the dealer draws cards from the remaining deck, one by one, and discarding subsequently, attempting to get four of a kind. Only four cards can be held at one time. The cards that this player discards becomes the next player's draw pile, and that player does the same thing. Cards are continuously drawn and discarded in an attempt to get four of a kind upon availability. Once a player gets four of a kind, that player takes a spoon from the middle of the table. Thence forward, the other players must also take a spoon. The player left without a spoon loses.
A variant of this game is "Free-Money Spoons." -A Sharpie is required. Each time a person loses, one successive letter of the term "free money" must be written in Sharpie in that person's arm. The first person to get "free money" completely written across their arm loses.
A variant of this variant is that the word or term to be written across the person's arm may be a curse word or curse term.
*Playing this game -especially with the latter variant- may result in the players jumping onto the table in an attempt to obtain a spoon; this may subsequently result in the table breaking... so don't play it on your mom's diningroom table.
Spoons may also be played with forks or knives... at your own risk.
Somebody's coming! We better make like a banana.
An obese police officer or sherrif or any deputy thereof who is restricted from running due to his weight.
~Such a person is sensative to the word donut
because he is "trying to lose weight."
Deputy Donut over there caught me smoking pot, but I outran his ass!
Bodily position assumed by televised sports fans where the upper body and possibly the lower body are reclined and the fingers of both hands are laced together and set behind the head to support the head.
~Putting the feet up is an optional variation, though some people insist on its assumption.
~Some people also suggest that this position is not complete unless either 1) a large bowl of popcorn rests on the crotch, 2) A large mug of beer rests on the table beside the chair, couch, or bed on which the person is assuming the position, or both.
When Rick got home from work, he sat down on the couch and assumed the lazy position to watch the game.
A police car
~Especially a squadcar with the traditional roof-top light bar.
This is definately different from a paddywagon/meatwagon.
We had to pull over to let the fuzzmobile go by. ...stupid cops.
