“The Exquisite Corpse” originally refers to a word game played by the Surrealists (you know, Man Ray, Miro, etc.)  in which a poem begun by one is continued by another, without knowing what came before.  It is also a drawing game played under similar restraints – the first artist draws the head, folds the paper over to hide his drawing, then passes the page to be continued by the next artist.  The process continues with the torso and legs, and when complete, the exquisite corpse is revealed, to the delight of all.
