Telephone

A passer-by hears nothing but the sound of hushed giggling as the secret—often a verse of Scripture—is passed from ear to ear. When it has whispered its way around the room, the final listener—almost always with an audible question mark at the end—repeats aloud what the message has become. And the giggling can no longer be hushed. Whether by expected error or by intentional intervention, the phrase has been altered, sometimes so far that it cannot be traced back its source. Everyone delights in sharing what it was when it came to them.
