"I could just eat you up!" I croon at the newborn in my arms. When its mother leaves the room I grin, and start with its toes.

"There were ten in the bed" ended quickly once the stuffed zebra pulled out a knife. "Roll over," he growled menacingly.

What did she expect when she hired Fat Bastard as a nanny.

Off the walls back to my ears echoed my screams. They could not mask flesh tearing, teeth gnashing, and groans of hunger.

Sentence structure is Germanic, as the horse over the fence some hay you threw. :) But there are many ways to get to twisted screams. Welcome aboard.

My screams echoed off the walls back to my ears. same number of characters but I liked the disjointed structure I originally used due to the nature of the event... trying to evoke a strangeness. Regsrdless thank you for the welcome :D

His left hand on a bible, he raised his right hand, palm out. He wasn't making an oath. He was signaling "Talk to the hand".

Always thought it a bit odd that so many oaths are sworn on a book that tells you not to swear oaths.

Matthew 5:34–39

34 But I say to you, Do not take an oath at all, either by heaven, for it is the throne of God, 35 or by the earth, for it is his footstool, or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King. 36 And do not take an oath by your head, for you cannot make one hair white or black. 37 Let what you say be simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything more than this comes from evil.7

The bible says a lot more than that about oaths. Shame on you for cherry picking!

Anyway, the bible says a lot of confusing or seemingly contradictory things, from the perspective of the unwashed.

Don't worry about it; I'll tell you how to interpret God's word and will. :twisted:

I'm with ya. It always cracks me up when folks are surprised that a collection of books whose title literally means "A collection of books" contains authors who don't 100% agree with one another within its pages. And I fall within the ranks of the faithful, even.

Jehovah formed clay into 100 golems and told them what to write, and then made a whole world full of believers, each just different enough that they didn't quite agree on what Jehovah was trying to say.

This was, I believe, Jesus' third Christmas present.

Then Jehovah told Jesus, "Oh my, I wonder who might go and straighten out that mess?"

And Jesus said, "I will!" (This was after Jesus had gone through his sullen teen years.)

But the believers were tougher than Jesus had expected, and they done him in.
Then Jesus came back, but kept right on going.

Jehovah neither bites nor chews, except for black holes.

I think the problem is always the same: The universe is a marvelous thing, but the instructions that came with it were in Chinese, translated by people who hadn't built the dang bicycle.

And that Free Will thing? Let's just say the jury's still out.

What's this? Is it my hair? So much of it. I've finally regenerated as a ginger! Wait. Why is a woman speaking my thoughts?

I came to missing a hand but feeling no pain. My machine had failed me. I didn't know why, but I had to push the button again.
