We actually played this game in my English class a couple of days ago, but I think it could work well on the forum. Essentially, someone prompts you with a somewhat normal sounding story description, and you attempt to write a newspaper headline/ ad tagline that fits that story, but makes it feel more dramatic.

Examples :
"A fifth grader is selling lemonade"

MINOR VENDS REFRESHING DRINKS FOR LOW COST WITHOUT BUSINESS LICENSE

"Do your homework"
