One of the local DJs featured this game yesterday on her "ways to waste time at work" segment, and it's simultaneously awesome and maddening, so I thought I'd share:

Funny Farm

Basically, it's a word association / mind map game -- you start with the phrase "on the farm" and need to brainstorm words that you associate with that, and if they're one of the options on the map, it shows them. Then, once you get those words, you brainstorm words you associate with them, and so on, expanding the map.

There is an endgame to the puzzle, but I'm nowhere near reaching it — it has to do with reaching the four corners of the map, which I'm having a hard time getting to. (Surprisingly, one of the sections that's giving me the most trouble? "comic books")

If you're looking for a way to kill time, this is a mind-building way to do it!

One problem I have is spelling. One of the boxes was "Pulp Fiction", and I next tried Quentin Tarantino, but I spelled it "quenton tarantino" and it didn't work. Thankfully I was stubborn enough to google it and check the spelling.

Okay ... I've merged in the previous answers, but I have found a few of my own ...

Oh, bravo! With the combined brainpower of the board, we can totally crack this thing!

Here's my latest update (merging in CK's answers):

I actually had the "samurai" / "martial arts" connection on my computer at home, but I forgot to copy the save game URL to merge with my work at, um, work, and now I can't remember what the answer is.
Kendo?

Yes!

Don't know why I was blanking on that word. Thanks, Bob!
Just got a bunch, including finishing off Baseball:

Okay, Comic Books and Baseball are complete, but we need one more to finish off Cartoons ...

I have a feeling there may be more in cartoons, perhaps including something that connects to the square to the right.

I just added "Disney"
