Made me think of the Assassin's Guild on Pratchett's Discworld, for some reason.

OK, this one is very funny and didn't get the attention it deserves. I hope Unca Norm keeps it on tap for next year's Nigerian Scam Spam Contest!

With gun in hand the assassin shot a wave of bullets, all missed the president, most said it was a miracle some said it wasn't

Long time listener, first time poster...

Interrupting our weekly tennis match, I asked the messiah what unified the faithful. He smiled gnomically and replied, "one, love."

Yea, okay, you get points for fitting that load of set-up into 100 characters, but you also get the DC razz for the punchline: BOO! HISS!

Thanks, ejbman. :)

OK, strawman - try this:

"The universe is just information" his thesis had said - but had his calculations just proved that déjà vu was a compression artifact?

Speaking of de-compressing things, I've always wanted to expand that out to a short story. Well, one day...

Yep - that's how I knew I was over. :)

I assume this has been asked before, but why call 'em twit-fic if the limit isn't 140 characters?

I don't know for sure, but I imagine it is to keep parity and/or symmetry with Drabbles, which are exactly 100 words. They're also called 'Twabbles'.

Ah, cool - I suppose it also gives you space for '#twabble #drabblecast' on the end, too...

I know 'Trojan' as a brand is supposed to make me think 'armoured' and 'protected' - but am I the only one who thinks 'getting inside sneakily', or worse, '...inside a horse'? :(
