Ray's official Facebook page is playing this game, but there's no reason we can't play here. Here are a dozen to start with:

Young boy needing new shoes because old ones are outgrown and outworn is slightly short on funds.

Newborn has hostility issues.

Unorthodox family has reunion.

Kids spend too much time with virtual reality.

Much ado about a butterfly.

Smart house takes over.

Did you know you could make wine out of garden weeds?

Poe fan with too much time and money parties in house on Mars.

How many tattoos are too many?

Robots replace grandparents.

Cemetery visit goes wrong.

Zombie attacks the world.

For certain I can name ten of the twelve. Tenth and twelfth one I'm drawing a blank. Guess I go to H E double hockey sticks. Red Face Confused Frowner

But these are "bad summaries"?

Robots replace grandparents: I Sing the Body Electric! aka The Electric Grandmother

Zombie attacks the world: Pillar of Fire

I'd say they are bad in the sense of they don't convey the true feeling of the story, but I've found even trying to make good summaries of many of Ray's stories results in this.
