Re: I bet it tastes like chicken

No, first link mentions this... V. bitatawa has unique markings and an unusual sexual anatomy, according to the study. Its scaly body and legs are a blue-black mottled with pale yellow-green dots, while its tail is marked in alternating segments of black and green. Males have a double penis, called ...

That was fun. Makes me think of Gary Larson, who did many fine God cartoons.

Re: Drabblecast 158- Dr. Diablo Goes Through the Motions

I really liked the Drabble News. Excellent parody of Broadway musicals. If you haven't checked out the link to the stem cell coat, you should, the coat is there in the photo and it really is small. I can see how gnomes would come to mind. Would love to see what Saladin Ahmed would come up with if he...

Re: Drabblecast 156- Going to the Chapel by Sandra Odell

Three great stories again. Being from Texas and attending weddings there, it brought back some interesting memories.

You can get through just about anything with a good supply of pralines...

Re: Drabblecast 155- The Second Conquest of Earth by L.J. Daly

With the exception of the main story subject, which was not my favorite theme, I loved everything about this episode. And the main story was expertly done and performed. Nice how the Drabble News fit in with the stories. Pure inspiration. Thanks Norm.

Interesting about the "fuzzy" and volume issues. Anyone else have this problem? Before posting, I always drive around the block and listen to the finished edit while smoking a cigar. If it makes it past my "car test," then I know it's good to hit the feed, and this one didn't raise any flags with m...

I loved the drabble and the main story. Great reading on both. I have trouble believing that ufo's can be that small, but it makes for an interesting story.

That would make you more of a dog person, however. Plus, we'd bet getting back into the need for Kevlar underwear. Too late. After that knife fight pregnancy I really want kevlar underpants. Huh. I wonder if they sell kevlar on spools? I could knit with it... as close as i could find was Kevlar tap...

Ah, but I am merely the moustache's prophet. Ask the moustache into your heart, so that yours too may look like Burt Reynolds and ye shall understand.

Still do not understand Norm's statement about the heart and mustaches though. I need to take a smart pill I guess... We were not meant to question Norm's ways. The best we can do is to search for guidance in understanding his word. I thought that was what I was doing, searching for guidance that i...

If I were in that situation, I'd be ripping it off his lip and stuffing it down his throat. But that's just me.

Also, it's "Lycan," as in were-wolf. Not the hardy fungal fauna that can grow in deserts and high altitudes. Might clear up the ending for ya. :-)

"Mustaches make our heart look like Burt Reynolds." Someone please explain what that means.

The lichen?? Strange ending. But I liked it.

Loved the drabble. Spiderbot's rule.

Perhaps not rape, but it certainly meets the criteria for statutory rape. She's 17, he's what, 30+?
