Amusing perhaps, but I can't breath.

The verb form is "breathe"
The word was choked off by an errant pastry.

No. The breath was cut-off, not the twabble. Besides, the record (now) shows that Bell's quote and the twabble are not (now) the same. :wink:

Burnt Toest By: Gretchen Kapity

I had to have my toe amputated today. I really need to be more careful around toasters next time. I only have two toes left.

The old gypsy poked me with a long, bony finger and hissed, "Thinner". Sighing, I got the acetone down from the top shelf.

I can tell that there is supposed to be a false lead here, but I'm not totally sure what it is.

Also, it should be ["Thinner." Sighing....]

Thanks for liking the last one a fortnight ago. Here's a couple I meant to post sooner:

First Wave
"Pull back to high ground!" I ordered as the enemy surged up the beach, singing eerily, their dorsal harpoon guns ablaze

Holy Wardrobe Malfunction!
"Laddered again, Superman? My utility belt is NOT your lingerie drawer!" said Batman, handing over the last blue pair.

Thought Police

This one's a silly little take on the "big brother" theme for this month among the Drabbles.

"Heard you got pulled over by the thought police the other night."
"Yeah I was thinking a mile a minute - in a school zone!"

I always feel bad about those signs I see around schools: "Slow School". That's not a nice thing to say about that school!
