For this one, have everyone sit in a circle. One person is picked to start. They turn to their neighbor and say, "If you love me, baby, please smile." They then must try to get their neighbor to laugh or smile, without touching them, by making faces or other actions. If the neighbor smiles, then it is the neighbor's turn to make the next person smile. If the neighbor does not smile, they must say, "I love you baby, but I just can't smile" and the first person must move on to the next neighbor and try again. The game is over once the entire circle has had a chance.
