+5 bonus score for using "gibbet" in a sentence!

They called him the intergalactic ninja space caterpillar cowboy. It disturbed him, however, that he didn't know why.

What would you give Lewis Caroll?:

`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

And doesn't 'tortured' mean 'better' in this forum? :D

A flying atomic wedgie, at least.
Him and James Joyce -- the two most overrated and quietly destructive authors, EVER.

Well, Carroll also blatantly ignored the Twabble-sizer, so flying atomic wedgie would definitely be in order. Although, ironically, if you remove all the punctuation, it comes out exactly right!

I watched my family as they barked at a squirrel through a window. It was eating the bird seed again. The dogs kept silent.

It's amazing how people will go berserk about those cute, clever rodents. All in favor of flying rats, too. :)

Thought for the day:
Actors, news-casters, and politicians all peddle lies for a living.
Actors are just good enough to do it off-prompter.

Take a starving dog and make him prosperous; he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between men and dogs.
