We did this in language arts (another, I know!) I'm going to describe a really junky car to you, and you have to try to sell it to me, using positive connotation. If you have little brothers or something you can also just borrow one of them. I have to find my example...I'll post it then. It's really fun! Try using some oxymorons too to make yourself laugh...

Let this be your mindstate....

"My car is a piece of crap but I want you to buy it anyway."

Brand: Ford
Year: 1964
Kind: Van
Color: Orange, Lime Green, Pink...Paint is faded and chipping off in some places, exposing rust.
Missing: 2 wheels, the remaining ones squeak

Basically it's a falling apart eyesore of a car [ie. crap]. I want to sell it to you anyway.
Graffiti is the most passionate form of literature there is.
