Fun, writing games?

So I'm having some friends over tonight. We're all writers and we're going to play some writing games. Do you have any that you might suggest?

When I say "games" I don't really mean the type that are meant to inspire you creatively... I mean more in terms of writers using their wit to try and make others laugh. For instance, one game we'll be playing is called "Advice Columnist" where we take a letter that someone has written to an Ann Landers/Dan Savage/etc type and then each person answers it... The answers usually get weird, gross, surreal and at their best are hilarious. Anything like that... basically simple prompts with plenty of opportunities for weird creative energy.
