Maybe b/c you learned some exciting new letters?

"R"? I wonder what that looks like. WOAH! That's crazy, kind of like a "B," but it isn't connected on the bottom.

Re: Your Avatar

my avatar is near and dear to me. I believe googled "funny pics" and it came up within the first few pages. I thought, well that's good enough (mediocrity is so easy!).

"What kind of cat is it?" - Podcasters

"Asshole...hahaha" - Norm

*crickets chirping*

"Uh, he just showed up at my door, and I started taking care of it." - Norm

Hilarious.

Who ask what kind of cat is it, anyway? Who really knows cat breeds?

just a few if I may:


Toast crusher (obviously a low count)
pie hunter
wiggly person
creature in disguise

how about some mean ones?
run-of-the-mill vampire
over-saturated zombie (except for Kevin Anderson's)

Don't believe the hype. I've been waiting on my check for story referrals for 3 years now, and it still hasn't come through.

Can I recommend that we add a belated poll to this forum? Which group of painted performers are creepier -- Clowns or Mimes?

Re: yessuh

That mighty Gods vs. Demon Deathmatch could really use its own prequel treatment. Sure, it might damage the considered, poignant tone of the larger arc, but it would be really damn cool. Shiv the Destroyer and Gilgamesh couldn't have gone down without a fight! As long as all of this takes place in ...

Also, I expect that Chrono probe was what was in the ark of the Covenant. Think about that for a minute. Holiest of all relics. The final resting place of the Quantum machine that made humanity what it was today. Another point that I'd like to make is that maybe the gods or demons have a much longe...

I've said the same thing of other stories (and Norm mentioned it in the outro) so I won't go on long about it here, but I really like how this story completely obliterated the supposed line between "scientific" and "supernatural." It makes complete and total sense to me to describe a demon in terms...

Haven’t heard a good Golem story since sittin’ on Daddy’s knee. Thing about his one was, if ya substitute “neighbor’s dog” for Golem, it just seems like a basic “neighbors are a pain and can be cruel” story that had fantasy elements forced into it. Did I miss something? I mean, if you’re gonna put ...

I can't agree. Following the same logic, people are obligated to supportively interact with any needy person who becomes obsessed with them. Unless you're saying we should treat animals better than humans. Which I think you'd get more support for Tribbles than Wandering Spiders. I disagree with you...

C) Pie-sex? In your fantasies things look a lot better than in reality. Thats why we're in DCland. In reality, having sex with some old flabby, filthy slut pie isn't at all what you pictured.
