Freshly inspired from my "oh that's horrible" from Norm in Episode 268, :D
Theme-wise, this might fit in well with All-Alien March


Hive Come to Collect: Kashyyyk Payments Only
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

The hive insects were patient, intelligent, ruthless, and entrepreneurial. They took advantage of the friendly economic laws in the Tatooine system and incorporated, simply and matter-of-factly naming the business after themselves. Money from honey and wax made way for more profitable ventures in to numbers running and taking odds on Pod races.

Enforcement fell to Chewbacca’s young brother, a towering hulk who delivered for a Jewish delicatessen as a cover for his collection calls, chewy rings of bread an aromatic calling card of his intimidating visits.

He was known as the Bookie Wookie Bagel Boy of Company Bee.

Thanks :) That was a punch line that stuck on my medulla like a scratchy wood tick while I figured out the other 97 words. With some run-on-sentence re-writing, perhaps a later run at the Bulwer-Lytton.

I was pretty awed that you pulled it off. I don't think I could have.

It may not be a coincidence that Patty Andrews died yesterday.

Not that you should feel responsible. She was 94, and only occasionally visited the DC Forum.
But you might want to send flowers.

Responsibility aside, a moment of warm contemplation seems appropriate for Patty.

I'd tried working further back in the song with a third job cutting straight furrows as an agriculturist

"He's into farming now, a plowing levelly"

but setting that up too was at least another 15-20 words. I'd have had to have resorted to something like

'But Norm, it doesn't say that the 100 word limit can't be in base eleven???? huff huff grumble. :?
