Would it be gilding the lily to change his name from Tim to Stu ?

Always trust your editors advice. Yes, he can be a hyper-critical bastard, but he's just the firewall between you and the masses, and he's got your back...

The invisibility potion opened my eyes. It worked, but people treated me the same! Even when I tried to cross the street.

It wasn't in any way intentional. The damn throttle on the Toyota went completely haywire! :P ;-)

scientific quibble: wouldn't an invisibility potion leave you in the dark, since the light waves would pass right through your invisible retinas and not be able to leave an image?

Good point, though I only ever imagined a light-bending effect (which would end up the same, except you'd be standing on black footprints all the time - no light to bend between foot and ground).

Of course not! It says right on the label that retinas, tonsils, and lower-intestinal tracts are not effected. (But the lens of the eye is, so no close-up reading while invisible.)

It wasn't in any way intentional. The damn throttle on the Toyota went completely haywire! :P ;-)
Quibble from the sheriff's department: Even with the throttle stuck open, the brakes will stop the vehicle. :x

Look at the bright side. Your heirs will benefit from the massive class-action lawsuit over the whole debacle...

Peering into the darkened void that engulfed me, I screamed. "Why?"
A deep echo replied. "Because you are the last one."

As I stirred my coffee, the waitress asked. "One lump or two?"
"Just one please."
The doctor said I should heal up nicely.

"So how about them Yankees?" Asked my brother.
"Oh you know." I said as I raised my rifle.
"Just fighting the good fight."

It's unclear if you are doing the Lord's work -- shooting yellow-bellied blue-coats.
Or, if you're one of the treasonous monsters, helping to rape Dixie.

I thought I could hold it, but when I reached the bathroom it was too late; the baby alligator’d already slipped my hands.

I came to at the end of an old pier. A raft appeared from mist. “Not you again!” blurted the ferryman. “Damn teleporters!”
