Twabbles take up so little space and so very little time.
The least we can do, for the Doctor's grace, is to make 'em rhyme.

We have had a discussion on the awesomeness of rhyming twabbles. Kudos.

Thank you Varda.
Here's one I prepared earlier.

I was called a prodigy, the best the school had seen.
So, I graduated and cursed it. I was very mean.
But, my record stands.

Thanks, y'all! It was originally a drabble and went all the way back to D'oh... but it was way, way too short, and there's really no way to pad something like this out and keep the meter.

Not bad but Grammar Nazi is enraged! :roll: There is a missing comma (or period) and quotation mark.

Also, might be more fun if it was something like: "Short-sighted, MoFo".

Joke making the rounds, happens to be twabble sized...

If instead of periods, women had apostrophes...
Then, they'd be more possessive and have more frequent contractions.

Cute.
Alas, perhaps the eyesight is bad. That is far short of twabble length.

You forgot to include the "to yourself".
