"Grains," said the vegetarian zombie hoard. Farmer Bill aimed his shotgun. The alfalfalypse wasn't happening today.

Jack & Jill went up the hill and were never seen thereafter. Later on townspeople fell down, complaining of funny water.

Worth a grin. And, we already have hoards of vegetarian zombies. See Santa Cruz, etc.

This is not a twabble. It is too short.

Oh drat, I was looking at the "with spaces" line ... all that editing I did was for nothing!

The genie told Ed the next request he made would occur. Driving, Ed shouted at the tailgater, “Get off my butt, asshole!”

Better, and clearer. Thanks!

If by grace you mean "deprived of his noodly appendage" and by god you mean "FSM," yes, probably. But thankfully last night I was touched by his noodly appendage and the thought burst forth.

Actually Prof. Rapaport was a CS professor and his degrees were in mathematics, philosophy and computer science. Never had any classes with him (wasn't a big AI person), but friends who did liked them. I did know to stay off campus computer systems whenever one of his classes had a project due. I wonder how much computational resources went into parsing buffalo sentences?

"Yeah, but still..."
His PhD is in philosophy. Philosophy tuition is every bit as bad as English tuition, except that they make you take different drugs when you read James Joyce.

Maybe English majors weren't directly responsible, this time, but the example of wasted tax dollars stands.

Apparently none went into proper punctuation, and less into clear writing.

Really bored today, so I've decided to go nuts with the Twabbles. Here's what I've got:

I wanted a stallion, not the mangy mare I was offered. But I needed a way to travel. A horse is a horse, of course. Of course.

The barista couldn't understand my accent. I found someone from Seinfeld in my latte. I did not want Kramer in my coffee.

The orchard was dead but not the garden. I sipped a tall glass of sweet pinkish-red liquid. When life gives you melons...

I let the cat out of the bag the other day. Fortunately, it was still alive. It didn't run away though, just jumped in a box.

I only speak in obtuse statements, acute comebacks, and I'm always right. It goes along with being fluent in Angle-ish.

Jim didn't expect everyone in the strip club to talk backwards. He relaxed when the stripper said one word he knew: BOOB.
Don't follow your dreams. Live them.
