    The original poster called this a trash can thesaurus which is cute, but we prefer to think of it as recycling the overused word rather than throwing it away. The link goes to other writing tips and not this, but the picture is clear enough. Great idea for synonym work. You could give them the first word and have them recycle it into other words. :)
