The actual magnetic poetry brand sets are better designed and the words are chosen to actually be useful; the Fridge Fun brand sets seem to just throw in every unusual word they can think of because they find it amusing to include such things, but really it's very difficult to find much occasion to actually use their unusual words. Honestly, how much occasion can you possibly find to use the word "technoweenie" in poetry? And I can't even find "naut" or "saut" in the dictionary; what on earth do they mean?
I was reading the magnetic poetry anthology yesterday. My favorite poem in the book is this one:
boy s are fat grow ly men after have ing jobsOh, and I don't remember the details of the dream I was having when my alarm clock went off this morning, but I do remember that it took place at Hogwarts. I'm scared now. Is there a rehabilitation center for Harry Potter addicts? I've read all the books now so I have no more choice but to go cold turkey until the next one is released. It's a terrifying prospect.
