The Incredible Changing Sentence

The rules:
  • There are three possible actions: adding a word, deleting a word, and changing a word.
  • Exactly one action may be performed per post.
    Note that this means that, even if a discussion arises, the sentence morphs during each post of the discussion.
  • Messing with punctuation or diacritical marks does not count as an action--you can change punctuation or diacritics however you want, but that can't be the only thing you do.
  • Correct grammar is preferred, but not necessary.
  • The sentence must contain a noun, a verb, and at least one other word.
  • To eliminate confusion over what the sentence is, we shall put it in a quote box at the top of each post.
We will start like so:
Colorless green ideas sleep furiously.

is an invalid move--two alterations were performed. I'll assume the intended move was
Colorless microscopic badgers chew furiously.
and change it to
Colorless microscopic badgers chew fugitives.

Colorless microscopic badgers chew empirical fugitives.


Perhaps - instead of just changing words one at a time - people could be allowed to add phrases/clauses? By adding the construction, they would have <noun>, <verb>, etc... the next people would need to fill in any missing words on their turns before changing existing ones or adding new words. For instance, I could have written

"Colorless microscopic badgers, <participle>, chew fugitives."

Then the next person could have written

"Colorless microscopic badgers, regurgitating, chew fugitives."

All in favor say Aye? :D

My colorless microscopic badgers are empirical fugitives.

This actually makes a bit of sense. Basically, I'm claiming that I have colorless microscopic badgers, and they're "empirical fugitives" in that it's impossible to find any evidence of their existence.
