Legends of this enormous subterranean creature have lingered in the Gobi desert longer than a poot trapped under the bedsheets...”

Some of the best stuff on Drabblecast doesn't get fully discussed because it's a story-length outro about memorized post-apocalyptic Drabblecasts becoming the scriptures of your mutated progeny's religion, or Connor Choadsworth's serialized Mongolian Death Worm Bonukka story, complete with blasphemously abused Christmas hymns, Mongolian angelic hosts and heavenly Worm Constellations in the West.
Norm's Stream of Consciousness is like a grown-up version of Disney's It's a Small World
ride, but with no lines, at no cost (if you're okay with being THAT guy), and if Walt Disney were Dr. Demento.
I mean, how the hell else do you account for the sudden appearance of Dr. Suess? Or the Three Wise Men replaced by The Marx Brothers?
While I am a mere apprentice moderator, I think the MDW deserves it's own story thread. I enjoyed it as much as the Babylon Probe Episode, which also included a bbardle. And a thread is necessary to nominate it for the 2009 Chalice of Glory award.
I have converted the 4 episodes into an MP3 file. Tom, if you tell me how, I will send you the file so you can post it for download. Thanks. Happy New Year!
