The idea is simple. Someone posts a real quote, which they either found by something they heard, read, or said themselves. The next poster copy-quotes it and gives a context, usually absurd, in which the quote might have occured, and supplies the next quote. For example, if I started with the quote:

"I know where they are not."

someone might respond with:


Quote:
"I know where they are not."

Although, Lurn never did know whether they were at the supermarket or not.

Is that all there is to it?

Yep. That's all there is.

I'll start:

"Want an orange?"

Of course, it's even better on a stick.

Lurn responds "No", for Apple's oranges are not near as good as his apples, being an Apple.
