Is there a term or phrase for posts where most of the comments are creatively continuing the theme of the thread? I first thought about this after my Pico Horror post
, and I also thought of the recent Book Titles with One Letter Missing post
. The former is a case of the comments being little stories, while the latter is wordplay, like Spoonerisms
and Tom Swifties
. And of course there are joke threads
, which are somewhere between the wordplay and story telling. What would you call these?

I was looking in the MetaWiki, but I didn't find anything, and I didn't want to make a page without having a decent name for the phenomena.
