This is the story of the little girl who didn’t hold her fish fork right, so her mother put her on a rocket to Venus. The end.

I've seen one of those on late-night cable. I'm trying to understand.

How depressing

When I get one of these big sore zits I just have to squeeze it out. But this one isn’t stopping. Crap. My head is deflating.

I only wind the clocks, I don't set the schedule. It's not my fault that the time that lets you live, carries you to the end.

That's the problem with cyberspace... it may be virtual, but just like natural gas, it too is colorless and odorless: limits your entendrability.

What? That the internet's a gas?

Or is it that, while it might sometimes be colorless and odorless (damn this amber, monochrome monitor!), it's far from bloodless?

I twit the light fantastic

Not at all. I have a few complete twabbles in the can, but the only phrases I have "chambered" are politically/philosophically themed -- and you big meanie poopyheads won't let me use them here! :(

I do, on occasion. And, no I won't tell you what accounts. If it makes you feel all warm and fuzzy (and not fuzzy like soft fungus growing out of your brain), then just assume it's me. :P

Good sir, Isn't the present tense "I twit"?
So grammatical correctness requires that,
if the regime's response was truly drastic,
then you must have twat the light fantastic

Nope, the past tense of twitter is twit, just like the past tense of light (¿litter?) is "Done lit".

I suppose some would say the past tense of twitter is twitted,
but that just don't fitted.
