Wild And Unlikely Theme Guesses

Caravansary - This year we will create a caravansary that occupies the crossroads of a dreamland: a bazaar of the bizarre wherein treasures of every sort, from every land and age, flow in and out to be flaunted, lost, exploited and discovered. This is not a tourist destination, but a home for travelers who come here bearing gifts. Amid the twisting and the turnings of its souk, participants will come upon an inexhaustible array of teeming goods and unexpected services. Anyone may pose as 'merchant' here, and anyone may play a 'customer', but nothing in this strange emporium shall have a purchase price — no quid, no pro, no quo — no trade at all will be allowed in this ambiguous arcade. According to a rule of desert hospitality, the only thing of value in this 'marketplace' will be one's interaction with a fellow human being.

Wild And Unlikely Theme Guesses

So this is my 8th year in a row guessing the theme will be Donkey Fucking. I have been right at least 50% of the time so far.

What is your guess?

The one huge obvious theme idea Larry still hasn't done is one based on animals.

Something like..."The Biotope", or "The Birds and the Bee's", or "Flora & Fauna", or "Mutural of Ohama's Wild Kingdom" whatever.

It seems like such an obviously great theme idea to base it on the animal kingdom (I guess floating world was kinda close...kinda) that I'm surprised its never happened.

So every year, I predict it will be an animal theme. So I'll go with that again this year.

"Flora and Fauna" isn't (exclusively) animals.

And it would be cool to have the streets named Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, Species and any needed streets could go with Sub-Species (Hello, Retrofrolic), Race, Population, Individual.

Although, apparently Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, Species has been superseded since my jr.naturalist days.

Now that I think about it ... I know this is a wild and unlikely theme thread, but the theme could be "what do you want from life?" Imagine the art!

I kind of like the "Your dream" theme idea. I mean it could be interpreted as things you want and pine for, or actual sleep time dreams. It leaves a lot for the imagination.

I think Glastonbury would be ""The World Is Your Dumpster".

"The World Is Your Toilet" is more Rainbow Gathering-ish.
