The kneeling man offered the small box to the woman he loved. “Oh no,” said Pandora, “I’m not falling for that one again.”

Good'un. It's appalling, all the ills those small little boxes inflict upon misguided men. :wink:

Hmmm, this may be the only fanfic of Ernest Hemingway's famous micro story.

Gilgamesh roared, his pleated beard trembled in wrath, yet they would not refund the late fee. Oh how times had changed!

I wake to garbled words and behold again, unraveled magnetic madness, gordian horrors, curse of the ancient cassette!

Ya know? I think this might help explain some of the "music" I hear nowadays.

Welcome aboard, Belcast!

Okay, one more.

Ring a bell, an angel gets wings. But wings push out, push others over the brink. Cursing, they fall from the head of a pin.

I like it. But if they curse merely because they are plummeting to their (after)death, then they probably didn't deserve wings. :twisted:

If divine merit can be awarded based on a stupid system of ringing bells, then hell, where's the justice in that?

A Bug's Life On The Road

Its the call of the wide open road. It beckons you down that long, broad tarmac. So you hit the road, and a tire crushes you!

On the subject of Lovecraft

I hosted the Cult of Dagon meeting this week. Unfortunately the sashimi snacks my wife prepared didn't go down too well.

The pressure was building for days. Now, finally reaching it's breaking point, the zit popped and messed up our mirror.

I ponder it for days, this once-orifice. Cord to cord we connect back to our dark origins. Innies, outies, we are all one!

No, not nice. This is a reposting of an earlier twabble.
Lots of extremely good twabbles (not saying I'm fond of this one) get overlooked for the "contest". I don't think that should be a license to repost them here.

Maybe start a different thread: "My favorite overlooked twabbles", or some such -- maybe.

Cthulhu? Gesundheit!

Nebulous terrors versus hamstrung characters. Stilted prose and "Fridge logic". The true horror of Lovecraft is out!
