The game "Association," is not played much these days, what with iPhones, the Internet, and other marvels. It's a great game, and also a way of parsing personalities. The rules are simple; one person leaves, the others pick a character all know, the person returns and by association with animals, food, flowers, landscapes, gemstones, etc., guesses the identity of the person. Here's an animal Association for each of the four remaining Republican presidential candidates.
Cute and cuddly like a black and white teddy bear, but can go suddenly fierce. And it bites!
Newt Gingrich Turtle
Slow-moving with a hard crusty shell. And it SNAPS!
Rick Santorum Wolf
Ancestor of Man’s Best Friend. Loyal to its pack. But if you’re not in its pack, you’re in trouble!
Mitt Romney Chameleon
Gets into houses, blends with wall paper, clings to ceilings, can drop on sleepers at night.
