Used to be an EP follower. Then Eley recommended people try out DC during a period the EP was in a production slowdown.

Father and son's first potty lesson...

Post by MadeintheDark » Thu Jan 23, 2014 10:12 pm

Look, there is the steaming poo, and the poo that will not flush and oh my god son run! the poo that takes over the universe!

MitD: So Stanley what do you think?

Stanley the Pookie: Ummm... pretty good but it sounds familiar.

MitD: No putting one past the Pookie. It is actually a variation on an old engineering joke, "The Three Degrees of a Pile of Shit".

Stanley the Pookie: You actually said that to son number one at his first potty lesson?

MitD: Yup, except we called it; to dump - step 1, and I will tell you a little secret.

Stanley the Pookie: Go on...

MitD: We had a real, live sample case. It was awesome!

Stanley the Pookie: Why do XV17-D4 males seem to be engrossed by there own waste products?

MitD: That my friend is a topic for another time.

poof!

MitD: Ok Stanley its you big chance. Your first Twabble are you well prepared?

Stanley the Pookie: Yes MitD I am. Using my vast knowledge of the many universes I have inhabited and considering this is the DrabbleCast, I present you with this little ditty.


Do you know that in the 2C4V-1A Universe Norman is a Yorkshire sheep farmer? No way Yup he is known as Norman the Shearman.

Time to post my second Twabble:

Smoke curled from the tip of the spear. Noting the high voltage leads connected, the ME certified: Death by Power Point.

Aptly named, DerangedMind.
You'll be bunking with ASID in the Pun Wing. Those aren't padded walls, by the way. The term we use is "Upholstered".

Welcome aboard, Captain Wilks. You are member #1509. (In the event of a mishap, you will be Case #1509.)
BOTH kidneys? Someone's Amazon rating is going to suffer.

Don't listen to Strawman. He just hasn't yet realized that both of those kidneys belonged to someone else! :P

Lucifer sat upon his throne and rubbed at his temples. He'd never broken a contract before, but... Could Bieber's soul be worth this much hassle?

Fine sentiment. But the devil doesn't build up unjustifiable "artists", like Bieber, just for their jaundiced souls. No, Ol' Scratch gets to relish in the agony and outrage that the spread of such anti-culture spawns.

Alas, length Nazi must now smite thee. That was way too long to be a twabble. It needs to be 100 characters, not counting spaces.

I feel certain Satan gets far more pleasure from loss of innocence than destruction of the debauched. He never misses the first bite of the apple.

...should I be concerned that I feel certain?

Certainty is one of the blessings of true faith. Sounds like you're bound for Hell. ;)

If grace is wishful thinking, I don't like my odds.
Problem is, if grace is grace, Bieber might be pardoned too.
