Re: Drabblecast 131- Storm Comes A' Callin’ by Jeremiah Tolbert

This is probably near the top of my personal drabblecast list. I'd say that it has a lot of atmosphere but that's been done before. Besides, it's an obvious pun. But I particularly liked the music and just the laid back feeling of deep southern demi-gods. Thumbs up!

Re: Announcing the Weekly Tw(itter)-(Dr)abble Contest!

Ron Jeremey found it hard to play the straight man in the comedy film One Eyed Monster but he was up for the task in the end.

Ok - I know this is getting silly but when I heard that there really is such a film I couldn't help myself.

I only get 99 chars for that (spaces don't count, no matter where). Maybe use %101??
The esoteric question is whether or not the quoted whitespace acts as a character in this context.

Aliens Bearing Gifts

The aliens came bearing gifts. After giving away some free samples they introduced their product lines. There were energy generators that used no fuel and space ships and flying cars. Credit was extended for the asking to those with sufficient collateral. The governments of the world were the bigges...

Perfection (retirement)

The robots didn't intend to decimate humanity. It just happened that way. It was the robotic love dolls that started it. The robots, programmed to serve humanity's every whim, made them perfect, much more so than any woman. For women they created perfect mechanical men. Why would anyone endure the f...

Here's an early treat for Halloween

The policebots' new programming to shoot armed and masked persons on sight made this Halloween far deadlier than usual.

Here in Texas a gun in your hand doesn't matter much. Remember the subway train scene in the movie Predator? That's the Texas way of handing problems.

Re: The World's Most Trusted Company

True, but they could easily cover the debt by selling assets such as the national parks. Can you imagine what you could get for condos overlooking the Grand Canyon or what the Disney Corporation could do with Mount Rushmore?

At the counter, he's relieved to see that all the Mega-Buncha-Cruncha bars are sold out, because they do taste like stale dog shit. With the enormous success of the Mega-Buncha-Cruncha Bar campa...
