Quick Fire #3: Modernizing Taboo (the game not sketchy stuff)

Here we are at Quick Fire #3.  In this round of what I am referring to as Karma (since I put my students in situations like this on a regular basis), we were given a word that we had to use a word cloud program to get people to guess what it was.  If you are unfamiliar with Taboo, I am sorry you have missed out.  Of the party games that have been inflicted on me, Taboo is probably the one that I actually legitimately like.  With that said, the rules are simple.  You get a word that you need people to guess to show your (and thier) awesomeness.  To complicate matters, you get a list of words and phrases that you can’t use. Here is mine in its muted glory:

I used a program called Tagul.  There will be more about that program at a latter date.

Mine was PLN.  His was Green.
