They gathered 'round for a telling of another far fetched fairy tale. "Dearly beloved," he began. "Oh! I love this one!"

Ah... A heartwarming tale of a boy and his dog! Or is that a boy and his gun? Or a boy and his whiskey? :)

Or all three!

Good times!

So, I've always wanted to do a decent twabble where the story ends abruptly. It seems like the right venue for it. I've tried it once or twice before, and those results went uncommented upon. Either it's impossible to do or I just haven't found a decent one yet.

Lot's of good twabbles don't get commented on, and some twabbles get praised that just leave you shaking your head. Thems the breaks in human endeavors.

But everybody and his dog does a cut-short twabble. there must be half a dozen of them on this forum -- and I've seen as many more elsewhere.

The best one is here, in my professional opinion. :wink:

Yeah. I didn't mean that as a whiny "woe-is-me" type of thing. Sort of curious what people think of abrupt endings in these. It almost feels like a way of cheating the system. At the same time, I'm sure there are scenarios which feel perfectly right for it.

Dr. Hongo schemed to rewrite the past, to rule the future. Alas, unionized history "teachers" foiled him unwittingly.

Bob saw Sue again at the party. He still loved her like a sister. That is: every time she talked, he wanted to strangle her.

It's not the crash landing, violent natives, or even the slow suffocation of the alien atmosphere I mind. It's just you.

Matrix and Oceans Eleven gazed lovingly at their offspring and sighed. "We'll call him "Inception," declared Matrix.

For some reason, the first person I thought of when I read this was William McKinley.

I woke at noon, and knew I'd missed the interview. My narcoleptic grandfather was right all along. You snooze, you lose.

ASID, I bet you were a real challenge to your elementary school psychologist.
Such an urgent case of low self esteem!
He probably didn't consider that if that single drop is the one on the very bottom, you've got enough psi to crush the school.

Not if you open the doors and windows before you submerge it.

Anyway, I don't know what sissified, namby-pamby school you went to, but at MY elementary school, we had: a principal, a football coach, and a "board of education" (with nubs). Not sure which was the "psychologist".
