I've never played that one,

I've never played that one, but I've played exquisite corpse, and Consequences. If people's imaginative enough, you'll end up having (a) something very funny, (b) an insightful view into people's subconscious, and (c) something rather morbid.

Haven't played it.
Think we could play it online? You know, tag and private message people or something?
I bet we could.

But you have to draw pictures for it. =/ There's a facebook application, but Oasis doesn't quite have applications yet, haha.

HOW TO PLAY "EAT POOP YOU CAT"
---------------------------------------------------

You will need at least 4 people to play and ideally at least 6 as well as a pen and piece of paper for every player.
NOTE: There are many variations of this game. This is just our personal favorite version. For more information about the game please check out...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eat_Poop_You_Cat

STEP 1:
Each player thinks of a subject of a sentence and then writes it down at the very top of their piece of paper.
NOTE: A subject of a sentence is what a sentence "is about". It is known as the "noun phrase". For example, in the sentence "All camels eat cheese", the subject would be "All camels". In the sentence "The Grimace and Barney the Dinosaur fought to the death", the subject would be "The Grimace and Barney the Dinosaur". For more examples of what a subject is please check out...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subject_(grammar)
Once all players have finished writing their subject, each player folds the top of the paper just enough to completely cover what they wrote and then pass their paper to the person next to them.

STEP 2:
Without looking at what the previous person wrote, each player thinks of a predicate of a sentence and then writes it down below the previously folded part of the paper.
NOTE: A predicate of a sentence is the part of a sentence that is "true of something". For example, in the sentence "All camels eat cheese", the predicate would be "eat cheese". In the sentence "The Grimace and Barney the Dinosaur fought to the death", the predicate would be "fought to the death". For more examples of what a predicate is please check out...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Predicate_%28grammar%29
Once all players have finished writing their predicate, each player folds the top of the paper just enough to completely cover what they wrote and then pass their paper to the person next to them.

STEP 3:
Each player unfolds and reads the subject and predicate on the top of their paper and then must attempt to accurately draw this sentence just below it without using letters or numbers. Each player then refolds the top of the paper to cover the sentence but not their drawing and then passes it to the person next to them.

STEP 4:
Each player attempts to guess the original sentence by looking only at the drawing above and writes it just below the drawing. When finished each player folds the paper again to cover the drawing and then passes it to the person next to them. NOTE: If you only have 4 or 5 players playing then please skip to step 8.

STEP 5:
Just like in step 3, each player then looks at the sentence and then attempts to draw it as accurately as possible without using letters or numbers. Each player then folds the paper to cover everything except their drawing and then passes it to the person next to them.

STEP 6:
Just like in step 4, each player attempts to guess the original sentence based on the drawing.

STEP 7:
Depending on your group's preference, size and space on the page of paper, steps 5 & 6 can be repeated. It's often more fun when everyone in the group has contributed at least one step to every single page, though by no means necessary.

STEP 8:
The group is to designate a reader who collects all pages and then reads the results to everyone while passing them around.
