One of my favorite silly-social card games is called "Give Me the Brain". It's by James Ernest, game designer extraordinaire, and involves a fast-food restaurant run by zombies. They've only got one brain among them, so they have to pass it around and take turns in order to assemble orders and serve the customers.

GMtB came to mind again the other day, when in the context of some bone-headed bureaucratic decision that a large organization made, a colleage of mine remarked, "Occasionally someone takes the communal brain out of the jar and dusts it off."
