Create an Avatar!

If the idea of getting insulted makes you queasy, you can choose an avatar that people can insult instead. It’s like a buffer for your feelings. Here are a few ways to pick an avatar:
1) Deal out one insult card to each player. Type one of your provided insult words into your phone’s search bar, and choose one image that results from the search. That’s your avatar! Have some fun and create a name and backstory for your character. You can even use a silly voice when speaking!
2) Choose a photo of your favorite celebrity and use that as your avatar

3) Randomly scour the internet for any photo of a person to use as your avatar
