Hey everybody! I figure most people are taking it easy for the holidays I just thought we'd have an open time for suggestion and wait for the challenge for the new year.

Here's what's been suggested so far.
Unused/New/Done

Loses at roulette
Exercise gone wrong
Chef cooks bad meat.
gets stomped or shot in the foot
sees attractive person, does a double take
given bouquet of flowers
their baby stroller rolls away too quickly to chase
clothes are torn off (like in cartoons, they have to cover themselves in that funny pose)
a guy loses a very important object
enjoying art
talking to the plants
giving orders
teaching
shopping
Ride (i,e, theme park... or anything for that matter..)
Emotion change ( change from one dramatic emotion to another)
Martial arts
gymnastics
peer pressure
classic lift
a moving walk, with a twist (i.e. not a cycle)
animate to a sound effects file (like gunfire or something)
russian roulette
waking up and walking outside naked
rooftop jumping/chase
Hot coffee (or tea if you prefer) gets spilled on the character.
Animate to your favorite movie line (10 Second Club where are you!?!)
Getting hit by a projectile like a ball or a bullet.
Making a difficult phone call.
Emotional or awkward stillness (just saw your pet get run over or walked into something embarrassing)
Change into a super hero out fit (think superman in phone booth)
Has rabies
Perform an athletic event
Nonhuman action (alien or monster performs an action)
A character shows affection to another character
Hiding from an oncoming threat
Finding the Master Sword
Solo SWAT action
Spying on an unsuspecting person
Idling
Animate to a song
Super Villian planning another nefarious scheme
Trying to cross a _very_ busy street
Annoying the still-as-a-rock Guard on duty
Pass the ball. (A ball comes in screen left, character plays around with it, then tosses it screen right. When you string all of the animations together it should look interesting)


So just throw as much suggestions as you can. I'll update this post as suggestions come in. Try to have your suggestion open to tell a story too. I suppose the deadline for this will be until the next topic voting session.

edit: Something I realized as I updated the list...
Please post suggestions without - or bullet points. Simple lines will do. So I have an easier time updating the list :)

Some people seem to have some extra time for the holidays to participate in the acting challenges and would like to get the next one started right away.

If anyone disagrees with taking the first two topics off the list then please speak up or for ever hold your peace.

The next challenge will be

Chef cooks bad meat (and knows so)

-or-

Gets stomped or shot in the foot

I will check back in 24 hrs., if nobody disagrees then the next challenge will begin tomorrow.
