Potentially fun, but that's way too short to be a twabble. :(

The van was hot and the passenger seat smelled funny,
but I had it better than the pony stuck in the back with all the candy.

this one comes courtesy of my brother. who knows? maybe this is the beginning of the next great american author? for the purposes of this forum, we'll call him: creamtangerine

Dane's pulse raced. Adrenaline rushed. Sweat beaded down his brow. He mustered the nerve to answer her: "Curly fries."
Many on the forum have asked me, so here's my answer: a spoonful of lighter fluid. And you'll need to wash it out really well when you're done.

Ah, another waitress with a Justin Bieber button on her vest... It has that affect on most of us. I admire Dane's suppression of the Urge to Kill. :wink:

that's interesting. what he meant for it to be was that moment of panic in line at a fast food place when suddenly you can't decide (or haven't already decided) what you want. "Regular or curly fries?" :arrow: panic. But I knew all that so I totally see what you mean. anyway, it's his first one. I'll tell him and maybe his next one will be better?

Nice twist. I think the rythmn would be better with an ellipsis rather than a second sentence:
My wife's star sign was Cancer" Simon said sadly, "so it was really very ironic how she died...
attacked by a giant crab."

this one, admittedly, is pretty niche. you may require google

Stan, you read the new paper by Vladimir Arnold? It was a little disorienting, but he said it practically writed itself.

A small carved wooden box held all of Rita's secret hopes and dreams. She kept it hidden inside her closet until she died.

I once had a spot named Dog. This was not whimsy but tendency to Spoonerism and the persistent pillar of fire found there.

I was strolling in the park this morning when I saw a guy picking up dog shit.
Then I noticed he didn't have a dog... or a bag.
