Re: Black Friday

Poverty is natural selection's incentivizer. But then come along the well-intentioned enablers of poverty, whose happiness is disturbed by the sight of suffering.

It's a fascinating new model for podcasting. Their objective is to aggregate new podcasts. I think it's destin...

Re: "How To Win A Hugo Award" by Lavie Tidhar

Amidst the assembly of strange stories, authors, and listeners, such as ourself, I look for more. How to Win a Hugo seems strange for the sake of strangeness. Of course there are Mormons. Why? Because that's the strangest religion. Of course, Jews, because Tidhar was thinking: Mel Brooks. But where ...

Re: Best Eaten Cold

Most excellent, 3trew. The Bible says "Some people entertain angels without knowing it... "
It fails to mention that some angels are employed by the Lord of Darkness.

I might have fired myself for incompetence a year ago. But I felt so guilty.
I had, after all, been sleeping with the boss.

Re: Post your Twitfic Twabbles Here! (General Content)

If you can't imagine it, you can't be prepared for that to happen, and you will completely miss the irony as you enjoy your soup. "You don't know what you don't know", is my motto. Because, dammit, I love irony. If I could only convert BS to Irony, I would be happy. Unfortunately, Irony seems to gro...

Time for another haiku contest! The last winner was Trey Jackson, whose prize was that the evil janitor in the Black and White Animals Trilogy was named after him. This style of train haiku would have had a pretty good shot, except the sunner is not the best name for an evil janitor. The early episo...
