Yeah, I'm afraid this particular train of drabble-thought jumped the tracks from "weird" into "bonkers", and then careened over the Cliffs of Insanity. :P

Looking back on it, I should've let Jeebus take the wheel. Aw, fudge! Darn it all to Heck!

S'ok, I'll be burning in Heck right alongside you.

But for the record, I have never been guilty of rapping anything. :)

What with "Sci-fi High" and the Big Mac rap, Norm may very well be a serial rappist at this time. If he cranks out any rhymes about Cap'n Crunch, we'll have our confirmation.

I think most of us will be in Heck for one thing or another, 'round here. Tailor-made for the DC forums. :twisted:
