Twitter is, at its heart, an exchange. People exchange information and ideas. Often, they exchange jokes and word games.
A recent word game that has been trending is #FiveWordsToRuinADate. “You look like my ex,” “Don’t worry, it’s not contagious” – you get the general idea.
Late last night, enterprising Twitter user @Rickreallfarmer (a/k/a Tiffany Marx, a self-described agvocate, mother and farmer’s wife from Oregon) tweaked the hashtag to #FiveWordsToRuinADateWithAFarmer and lofted a few dozen or so into the ether, starting with this one.

Tiffany’s game caught on, and a flurry of five-word date-ruining suggestions have been peppering Twitter ever since. Here are a few of our favorites:
