What do you call this particular type of post?

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? [more inside]

If you can't say something nice, please wait for a while.

A minor petition to MeFites at large: if you're the first person to comment on a thread, please don't start out negative, because that tends to bring the whole conversation down from the get-go. [more inside]
