The Wicked Witch Looks at 40 (Decades)
by Janet E. Sever

The wicked witch business wasn’t what it used to be. It had been such a simple thing, to lure children with candy; back in the old days when candy had been hard to come by...

This week's episode gets my vote for tops overall. Beginning with Sir Tweedy's great cover; on to a top notch drabble by Zac Alexander in which I found another argument for the existence of God in the fact that Gregorian Chant sounds so awesome in outer space. Janet Sever's story was excellent, right down to the astute observation that children taste much more like pork barbeque than beef barbeque. The outro CitiBank tag was typical Sherman nice touch.
My only regret is that I can't go back and take Liz' science courses. My life might have turned out so different. I might have been a mad scientist instead of a mad humanities major.

Sadly, I can take no credit for the cover this week. :oops:

I'm actually surprised there is an episode this week, since it makes 3 released in 5 days. I guess no one told Norm what "vacation week" is supposed to mean. :wink:

Great episode guys! A very nice humor piece! The drabble was good too. (Geez, you'd think my spellcheck would have learned "drabble" by now.)

Ahhh, career change can be a bitch. Especially if you have to give up delicacies like, say, children served w/ bearnaise sauce.

Fantastic story. Puts Martha in a whole new light.

That was a fun story! I had a good chuckle at the Palin knock, among other things. Surprised to see so little comments on it so far, but I guess we have had a lot of Drabblcast thrown at us lately it seems (lucky us!), maybe people are catching up.

Oh yah, and great Drabble this week too.

This is my favorite episode since Out of His League. Lite, funny, and well written. Really enjoyed Norm's pre-teen rapin' trick or treater. Although I would have liked the kid to have gotten eaten.

How do you like your Martha?

It somehow does not surprise me to see Martha drinking liquid nitrogen...


I liked this story. Fun, but forgettable. My favorite part was the tricker-treater rapper with the black squirt gun. It was also pretty funny to hear the witch lament the lax manners of her recent meals.

This is one of my favorite stories in some time. It didn't do any heavy lifting but was just a lot of fun and very well produced and read by Norm. Loved the nonchalant handing of children consumption.
