The pie eyed the sky. It looked like rain, the sky, well, the weather actually.
Fortunately the pie had come pre-heated.

It works better if you Twabble it properly...

I saw a white horse in the pub the other day.
"Isn't there a drink named after you?" I asked him.
"What?" he said. "Dobbin?"

That certainly works, but I felt the urge to be a bit more obscure. And I wanted to continue the whole centaur theme :) in a twisted, counter-intuitive way. Or whatever :roll:

Enraged, Bobby grabbed the nearest knife from the display and stabbed the cashier. He had his revenge, but at what cost?

Limited displacement

Hence the sign over the display...
Lovely to look at. Lovely to hold. But if you use it to brutally murder a member of staff, then put the body in a refuse sack and try to walk nonchalantly out of the shop and carry the corpse away in the trunk of your car... Consider It SOLD!

I feel like somebody must have come up with this already, so I'm sorry if I'm stealing someone's gag here:

The Enterprise's navigator fired his phaser. I'd been expecting that since Act I, when I'd first spotted Chekov's gun.
