VOTE/VOTED OFF THE ISLAND
Clarify the topic here: http://bit.ly/1kKTKIu
Isn't it amazing how a word or phrase that was not even a glimmer in anyone's vocabulary a decade ago, is suddenly something that most people are at least familiar with. That's the evolution of language, and it will continue on as long as creative people say creative things.
In a nutshell, this week's topic means to get rid of something/someone that doesn’t come up to scratch. So you can either come from the “Vote off the Island” angle, which means getting rid of someone/something. If it is “Voted off the island” then it is coming from the angle of the one or thing that is kicked out.
There are some example sentences at the above link, but a simple churchy type one would be:
When it came to organizing the church dinner, Melissa kept trying to take over everything, but in a really bad way. So the committee got together and decided to vote her off the island. She didn’t like it, but at least we didn’t end up with novelty strippers for entertainment. Honestly, the things that girl comes up with!
As always, you don’t need to use the phrase "voted off the island" in your entry. However, you do need to show the meaning through your story/poem/article. It needs to be the focus of your entry. You can be creative and not stick to the literal meaning, but you would need to show the connection very clearly.
So have fun with it and enjoy yourself. Enjoy the creativity process and feel free to chat about the topic here.
