Rutabagastrophe (Formerly Just Don't Ask)

Post by Domition » Sat May 08, 2010 12:33 am

While pondering the drabblecast theme song he decided to test its voracity for himself. Having visited the grocery store some weeks before the rutabaga was sufficiently shrivelled. Seeking the necessary privacy he locked himself in the bedroom, turned down the lights and proceeded with the experiment. “Nothing, never mind, its a long story.” he replied in a shaky voice when his wife questioned him through the door. Hearing Norm's softly amplified voice through the door she carefully backed away. An hour later he returned to the living room dishevelled and disappointed. “Don't even ask.” he told her, so she didn't.
All the answers lay in her cold, dead fist. No one thought to look there before the burial.

What do you think, Straw, this one needs a better title, no? Something to draw attention to its DC dorkyness while simultaneously conveying a sense of vegetable defiling. Any suggestions? What about Rutabagastrophe? Double entendre?

It may be time for Norm to add "Don't try this at home" disclaimers.
