Twisted definitions

Here's where you can set a challenge or invite other Wordwizard members to take part in a word-related game of some kind.

To stop things getting too confusing, it's probably best to create a separate thread for each new game or challenge.

I work in an Art Gallery as a guide. The other evening we had Reg Mombassa in doing some drawing. He is a national treasure here not only as an artist but also as a founding member of the Aussie band Mental as Anything.

He was busy signing art work for his admirers after he finished when a lady near me observed that the people were having an ARTGASM.

Love it
