That quote was perfectly valid and follows the same rules that Fox News uses. :wink: :shock:
More common ground.
No, that's a technical foul. If you don't use a word in a quote, you must either place an ellipsis or, if paraphrasing, put the summary phrase in parenthesis. See the Gregg Manual, 274 thru 283.

So the "Fox News" lie would have to be in parenthesis for your "quote" to be as honest as mine.

I shall die, but when I do, I shall be reborn an immortal being of pure energy! Or a rotted corpse. I suppose time will tell.

If A happens then i will have to put up with the other immortal energy things talking on forever and ever about being energy and blue or whatever.

If B then i will rot slowly and have new conversations with bugs and other things i become. they might not have much to say but if i have to hear about being energy forever ill put up with it.

As he chewed through some truly putrid flesh the maggot wondered if anyone else had problems getting home after dinner?

"Look I'm a Lion!" said the mouse.

"No!" boomed a mighty God, "You are a mouse!"



Irritated, the mouse bit the God's head off.

She loved her ginger bread man. Unconditionally, he would love her too. Cookies aren't very filling. Time for a new man.

It's a major catastrophe
to omit the apostrophe.
By turning possessives to plurals
you hearken the end of the world(s).

Grammar, at least.

PS: Any applicability to previous twabbles is purely coincidental. :D

The Titans led by 2.

He thought, "What would Zeus do?"

Setting down the ball he reached for a thunderbolt.

Einstein showed us that matter is bound energy and that time is a relative illusion. However I, for one, am not very blue.

Mixed Marriage

"Precious!" cried Gollum.

Alas this couple couldn't agree on the Oscars.

Alone

We're not alone, but will wish we were.

Knives slicing. They're coming. I'm not insane.

I see 'em reflected in your eyes.

It's awful short to be a twabble. Poem and or specifics might help.
