Honey Do You Love Me?

A.K.A. Baby, if you love me, smile

A.K.A. Quaker Meeting

Players form a circle with one player in the middle (it). The middle person must approach players in the circle and ask, "Honey, do you love me?" The person being questioned must answer, "Honey, I love you but I just can't smile." If s/he does smile or laugh, s/he becomes "it" and the previous middle person joins the circle. The person who is "it" is not allowed to touch other players but may make as many funny faces as s/he wishes.

(Baby if you love me smile)

The same as above except that you say "Baby, if you love me, smile", and the other person answers "Baby, I love you, but I just can't smile".  In this version players are allowed limited touching (sitting on lap, tickling neck, etc).  For a slightly older, nearly pubescent age group.

(Quaker Meeting)

One person is "It". The others all must all sit down and be the audience. It says
"Quaker Meeting has begun, no more laughing, no more fun. If you dare to crack a
smile, you may have to walk a mile.". Then It makes funny faces, or sounds, or tells
jokes or does anything except touch a member of the audience, to get someone to
laugh. The first person to laugh is at the mercy of It. It can decide some horrible or
embarrassing punishment (like walking a mile) for the laugher. After the laugher has
completed the punishment, s/he is the next It. One variation - all players can decide if
they want to set a time limit for It to make them laugh. If It does not get someone to
laugh within the allotted time frame, then the audience can decide on a punishment for
It. The next It is then chosen by a picking game (eenie meenie, etc).
