What's the point? -- Every day, this site posts a new statement, and visitors can try to "one-up" the original. A recent example: The initial post was, "She was like a seesaw: little kids threw her off-balance." Attempted one-ups included, "always held smaller kids in high regard," "never really went anywhere" and "reluctant to take the weight off." Users can vote on their favorite response, and the winners get glory on the main page.

What to look for --Check out the archive to see a year's worth of comebacks, some better than others. And if you think you can do better, weigh in on the next one. Also, if you find one person's posts particularly amusing, click on the user name to see all of his or her entries.
