Sunday: World's Longest Game of Telephone

May 22

You all know this Telephone game that you played as a kid, where everyone stands in a line and attempts to quietly pass down a phrase to each other, until everyone realizes at the end that none of you guys know how to listen, or to enunciate, or that someone down the line messed it up on purpose because they wanted to get you to say something silly. Maybe it goes over our heads when we're young, but it's actually kind of a cool early lesson in many of language's little failures and flaws. In the spirit of that game and getting the word out, CP contributor Lexie Mountain has been working for almost a year to get at least 1,331 people show up to play Telephone at the Walters this Sunday and break the Guinness World Record. Will she be successful? Drop by and participate, or if you sign up to play before May 21 you might get a prize. 10 a.m.-3 p.m., Walters Art Museum, 600 N. Charles St., longestgameoftelephone.eventbrite.com, free. (Rebekah Kirkman)
