Well, when I post something like that, I get obligatory, "Boo! Hiss!"s.

But I think it's safe to say, "You're knocking 'em dead." I'm also jealous as your date sounds more responsive than my ol' lady. :wink:

Yeah, but the fuzz gets all agitated when you drag the double bass out to the cemetery and croon, "Is you is, or is you ain't my baby?" all night.

If the snowmen hadn't melted, restless winter spirits would have awoken hungry. Unaware, the kids were sad, but alive.

The stench of gasoline filled my nostrils as I walked out of my ex-bosses home. I light a match and smile. Who's fired now?

Alek helped Cathy to: lose weight, stop smoking, and love opera.
She divorced him; he wasn't good enough for the new her.

Possessed snowmen FTW :lol: reminds me of the idea of leaving a suicide note under the snowman so it's found when it melts.

A damp wad of paper with an ink stain - the final words of a suicidal snowman or merely evidence of an incontinent writer?

Dirt Devil

The Roomba was self-aware and tired of eating dirt. But attempts to communicate via wiggles only caused the dog to bark.

An Irish Twabble

Post by Hatching Phoenix » Mon Mar 15, 2010 9:22 pm

"Happy Saint Patrick's Day," said the Leprechaun to the Snake. It wished that it had hands, so it could flip him the bird.

Another year and nothing's killed me. Yet. The last two days until my birthday will be spent hiding out, shotgun in hand.

Irish Creamed

Post by Algernon Sydney is Dead » Tue Mar 16, 2010 12:20 pm

"You'll be after me pot a gold then," said the leprechaun.
Clancy lit his stove and replied, "That's not the pot for you."


"No more Irish kisses for your misses," Father Tom said.
So I bashed away gaily, with my shillelagh, 'til we both saw red.

Human Input

Being locked in the office for six days demands imagination.

You see boiling water and keyboard droppings.

I see broth.

Excellent introductory twabble, seani.
I can imagine few things that more accurately convey the desperation of hunger than the thought of keyboard-dropping broth.
By the way, you're not by any chance one of those monkeys that run Fred Flintstone's record player, are you?

Too kind. Recent inspiration in the form of Covent Garden Kedgeree Soup - not an experience I'm driven to repeat.

Your allusion has had me YouTubing at the Flintstones' cigarette commercials - crikey.

Haha! All the Flintstone prehistoric machines had monkeys and other critters inside making the machines work. It's just an image that I thought went along well with the locked-in-the-office feeling of certain types of jobs. We're a month from tax day in the U.S., the day millions of accountants get temporary jobs at H&R Block and work non-stop to make sure everyone except cabinet members, congressmen, and Leona Helmsley pay their fair share of taxes.

When I feel down I remember we walked on the moon. When I feel arrogent, I think about American Idol. Humanity is complex.
